Language courses

Volksuniversiteit Den Haag is the largest language institute of the region. We teach nearly 30 languages, usually on different levels and making use of methods specially developed for adult learners.
Learning languages is not only useful but also fun. There are no formal exams and certificates involved in our courses, apart from the Dutch as a foreign language courses. People attend our courses out of personal interest. This results in an informal atmosphere which greatly contributes to the fun of learning a new language.
