Onderwijs in de Nederlandse taal en cultuur in Seattle

Dutch for Adults

We'll offer a beginning Dutch class for adult learners in the 2018-2019 school year. This class is open to anyone—you don't need to have a child attending Oranjeschool—and no prior Dutch knowledge is required.

The classes will be taught on Saturday mornings at the French American School of Puget Sound on Mercer Island from 9:45 to 11:45 am, so two hours. There will be classes every other week, starting on September 29, 2018.
We'll use De Delftse Methode as the course curriculum.

The course tuition is $450 and will need to be paid in advance. Course fees cover the cost of materials, which include a book, online access, and work materials.
To register, please complete the registration form (PDF or Word) and send it to info@oranjeschool.org. You can also send any questions to this email address.
After registration, Oranjeschool will send an invoice by e-mail for course payment (including materials) in August 2018. The full fee will need to be paid before the start of the course. Course costs can be paid using electronic funds transfer (EFT). A link will be sent along with the invoice.
