We follow the rules made by the government according to the corona virus. All visitors can stay 1,5 meters apart from people who are not member of their household. We ventilate the classrooms. Students and teachers have to stay home when they have symptoms of the virus. 

Language Institute Brederode

Language institute Brederode – situated in artists’ village Bergen – facilitates language courses for businesses and individuals in and outside of North-Holland. Individuals take classes in Het Studiecentrum, a quiet facility just outside the center of Bergen.

Business-related courses can be arranged both in company or at a location of your choice. You can also take classes through Skype, so you can keep learning, wherever you are.

We offer a broad selection of courses in many languages on all levels. Is your language of choice not listed on our website? Courses for less-common languages can also be arranged.

Every last Friday of the month students and teachers gather in ‘our’ pub De Taverne for an afternoon drink. You can join us if you want to between 5PM and 7PM. We all enjoy speaking diferent languages and you can practice your Dutch!

Our private courses for Dutch speakers

Intensieve taaltrainingen

Tijdens een intensieve interne taaltraining – een zogenoemde total immersion – verwerft u de door u gewenste taal op een toplocatie in Bergen aan Zee. In een natuurlijke omgeving spreekt en schrijft u binnen een week méér dan een aardig woordje over de grens.

What customers say

  • My private lessons with Brederode were extremely productive. They were specific and the teacher prepared lessons on areas where I needed the most assistance.

    Amy James
  • My personal Brazilian Portuguese course was more than personal. It was special! Not only a good foundation was made but also a beautiful ambiance, tailormade and flexible training and above all FUN. I would say: "Eu continuarei falando português. Muito obrigado pelo bom atendimento."
