When you’re the only student of the teacher, chances are that you will learn Dutch faster. Tulip Education offers these private lessons for individuals or couples.

For people who do not live in or around our institute, we offer individual lessons by video call as well. This way it doesn’t matter if you live outside the Rotterdam area or even outside The Netherlands somewhere else in the world, you can still learn Dutch at Tulip Education.


Lessons in small groups have the advantage of being able to interact and practice with different people at the same time. For some people, the social aspect of learning together is much appreciated.


Especially for people who want to learn Dutch in groups of up to 4 students together, we offer the Intensive Courses Dutch. There are courses for all levels of Dutch. These courses start every two weeks.

For groups, tailor-made courses are also possible.


Our institute offers Civic Integration courses (“Inburgering”), not only via private or small group lessons, but also via small classes for students who make use of a DUO loan to pay for their Inburgering lessons. Our DUO Inburgering classes will prepare you for your Inburgering exams.

The payment for this course will be settled directly between Tulp Educatie and DUO.


Tulp Educatie offers corporate classes on-site. Co-workers do not need to travel after work to a language institute but can attend the lessons in their own office and work environment. During the courses, we will focus on the specific language skills needed in your company. 

These in-house corporate lessons can be taught to groups with a maximum of proximally 10 students at a time. By limiting the group size, we make sure everyone gets the required personal attention.
