Conversation courses during the day focus primarily on oral communication and fluency. You will improve your listening and speaking skills in a relaxed, supportive atmosphere giving you the confidence you need to express yourself in English.

These courses are often taken to supplement a General English or a Business English course and will give participants that extra boost to speak with more confidence. While lively conversation and discussion is the main aim of this course, some vocabulary and grammar may be covered to enable you to improve your speaking skills. A textbook will be provided but it will be supplemented with a range of authentic materials to cover topics reflecting the interests of the participants in the group, such as culture, travel, and current affairs.

Conversation courses are offered from B2 Upper intermediate and C1 advanced level.


The prices are per lesson. The total price depends on the number of lessons that you sign up for. You can choose.

  • The price per lesson is less if you take more lessons
  • Materials cost €35 per level
  • The minimum number of lessons is 4


You can normally start anytime you like! There are no specific starting dates. The courses run all year round from September until July.

In order to place students in the correct class, we offer free level testing before registration. This is normally every Monday between 12.00 and 18.00. If there is a suitable course running, they can join from one week after the registration process has been completed.

Testimonials from students:

‘I chose the British School because I’m living in Holland now with my husband and I need to learn English for my life here. My husband found this course on the internet. Also, the teacher is British and this is very good for me. I am very much enjoying the course because I’m learning a lot and I speak English with my partners all the day.’


‘I chose the British School because I liked a short course where I could improve my English fast. I’m enjoying the course a lot and I like the teacher as well. I will come back for the following course!’
