‘Get your Dutch on board!’ - Taalhuis Amsterdam

‘Get your Dutch on board!’

Taalhuis presents new Dutch conversation classes on the water!


‘Get your Dutch on board!’


For everyone with A2 level and higher!


Now that we can slowly start enjoying being outdoors with our friends, colleagues and families again, Taalhuis is offering a very suitable setting to practice your Dutch skills: the water! As the gentle outdoor breeze creates a safer environment than inside a building, we are now providing a unique experience for all students interested in giving their spoken skills and vocab a boost after a few months of being homebound.

Our befriended polyglot skipper and chef Merel will pick us up at the canal beside the school, and during the boatride she will be sharing some insights about Amsterdam’s culinary legacy unknown even to most Dutch themselves! We will embark on a guided Dutch conversation offering new useful vocabulary for your everyday lives and plenty of opportunities aboard to practice.


The first edition of Dutch On Board is scheduled on:

Date: 3 July 2020

Time: 17:00-19:00

Pick up: in front of Hortus Botanicus (Nieuwe Herengracht)

Price per person: € 55

Of course we offer a tasty (non)-alcoholic beverage and Dutch bites.



How many can join? From 2 to 11. Groups up to 4 people for the small, classic wooden deck Dutch boat from the 70’s. Between 5 and 10 we’ll sail the ‘Green Knight’ electric ZuidWesterSloep.


You can also book with a private group of friends or colleagues and request a specific date for your Dutch On Board practice.


What else to bring:

— a jacket that likes wind or an occasional raindrop

— a notebook and your favorite pen
