The British School in The Netherlands (BSN) Language Centre offers general English courses for adults from Beginner to Advanced level.

Students study grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation and the four skills: reading, writing, listening and, most importantly, speaking.

You can choose to study once or twice a week and if you have more time, you can take more than one course at the same time. An example would be general 2x per week and conversation 1x per week.


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


No fixed starting dates! You can normally start anytime you like! 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.

This is information for the coming semester 2017 2018

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.’
