What Sets Us Apart?

The BSN Language Centre is part of the British School in The Netherlands and is a non-profit organisation. We have served the international, and business communities of The Hague and surrounding areas since 1985. 

The Language Centre was originally set up by the British Council before becoming part of the British School in The Netherlands.

We have a British-English educational background, and maintain a high standard of teaching and learning for all our students. The BSN Language Centre strives to get the best out of our students; adults and children - regardless of their age or language ability. 

Our mission is to help you advance your communication skills in English or Dutch!
