Here is what two of our students had to share about the BSN Language Centre:

  • ‘I am so pleased that I made the effort to take a Dutch course when I arrived here. The BSN Language Centre has been brilliant, not only did I pick up the language but I made new friends at the same time too.’ Matthieu
  • ‘The Dutch textbooks are easy to use. I love that our group discusses everything from recipes, to our children, to telling the time, and I also found the topic of Dutch etiquette to be really helpful.’ Lisa
