Since 2009 we are implementing a program of learning English language in one of the most unique countries in the world – the Netherlands! Coming summer we invite you to the Summer English learning program in the Netherlands, where you can significantly improve your language skills, as well as spend time in one of the most beautiful cities in Europe and meet lots of people from all over the world!
This is not just an English language course! It is a program full of unforgettable experiences, new encounters and much more in one of the most amazing cities in the world – The Hague!
The main objective of the project is to give young people a chance to practice English and improve their language skills. In addition, the project also allows students to learn more about the culture of an amazing country – the Netherlands, spending 2 weeks or 1 month in one of the most unique cities of Europe – The Hague. The project has wide cultural and social elements – excursions, visits to various organizations, meetings with interesting people, leisure activities that enable students not only to improve the English language skills (cultural program is also conducted in English ), but also learn a lot about the country, in which education takes place!
Learning a foreign language abroad – is not just a trend, this is the most effective method to learn the language if you want to achieve results in the short term! Immersion in the foreign language environment is the best way to overcome the language barrier and make significant break in the study of a language!
English teachers in this program are native speakers from UK, USA and Australia. Every weekday English classes will be offered to students. Emphasis will be made on the development of students’ speaking skills in order to overcome the language barrier. At the same time, students will be able to learn all the aspects related to grammar as well.
The communicative method of teaching is widely practiced during the course. In this method students are encouraged to speak the language as much as possible in order to overcome language barrier. Upon arrival, students’ proficiency in English will be tested and they will be divided into groups according to their levels. Classes will be conducted 5 days a week and will last 4 academic hours per day.
Accommodation will be provided in the student residence of the university. Students will live in double rooms (single rooms are possible for an additional fee).
The Course will take place in the Hague from 1st till 28th August 2019.
The Hague is a highly international and great location for English language course!
Besides, the Netherlands is a very small country and you can easily travel within the country during your free time. To give an idea about the distances – it takes only 45 min to get from the Hague to Amsterdam. The biggest airport of the Netherlands – Schiphol – is only 15 min train ride from the city center of Amsterdam and half an hour – from the Hague!
Besides lessons, we will offer an additional social program – we will meet people, visit organizations, conduct seminars on various topics. The Hague is one of the international centers for UN and other international institutions. You will find here the International Court of Justice, International Criminal Tribunal, International Organization for Migration and a lot of other UN-related and other international organizations.
In addition to English language classes students will be invited to participate in various activities – a bike tour, a tour of “Secret Hague”, “List Hunt”, visiting different organizations, evening games with local youth and other activities where working language will be English, so they will be able to practice it even outside their study room.
Among the most popular visits there will be:
Van Gogh Museum

HOW TO APPLY?
Please, complete this form
We reply all the emails with the applications. If you have not received a reply from us within 2 working days – please, email us again, probably we have not got your email.
We provide a visa invitation for the visa to the Netherlands. Please note – visa invitation is not a visa – with the invitation that we will send, you will still need to go to the closest Dutch Consulate and apply for a visa.
Together with the visa invitation you will need to provide other documents – usually those documents include passport, passport size photo, filled application form, insurance, proof of means, proof of work/study and other documents. The list of the documents might slightly differ depending on the country where you apply for a visa. Please check the website of the closest Dutch Consulate to see what is the list of the documents you need to prepare.
In most of cases before applying for a visa you need to make an appointment at the Consulate. Some times you can only make an appointment 1-2 months in advance. We recommend you to contact the Consulate as soon as possible to make an appointment.
The fee for the visa might differ depending on the country where you apply – you might have your visa free of charge or might need to pay for it 35 or 60 euro. Those are the fees in case you apply for a visa directly at the Consulate. If you apply via Visa Center of the Dutch Consulate, Visa Center, Travel agency or another organization – those organizations might charge extra fees for their services.
If you submit all the requested documents on time the chance for the rejection of a visa is very small. In our experience the visas are mostly rejected if an applicant provides false information to the Consulate. This could be the major reason for rejections. We kindly ask you to check the documents before the application and make sure you only provide the correct information to the Consulate and in that case you most probably will receive a visa without any difficulties.
And of course if you have any questions regarding the visa application procedure we would be happy to assist at any stage of your application!
If you have any questions about Language Summer School we would be more than happy to assist you and answer all your questions! You can contact us though the email – firstname.lastname@example.org
Most of the questions are already answered on the website. However, if you still have any, please do not hesitate to contact us!
If you are a minor, and you would like to have a tutor, that has an extra cost of 45 euros per day. A tutor checks that you have eaten or helps you to understand how to cook, accompanies you to the grocery store, helps you to get your clothes cleaned (explaining you how to use the facilities, makes sure you get on time to lessons, and helps you to rent a bike, etc.). Some minors need a tutor, especially for the first week. A tutor can be booked for minimum 1 week.
