The Dutch Language House informs you about different options: Dutch for beginners or advanced learners, fast learning or just at a slower pace, oral and written courses, in different municipalities in Brussels, both during the day and in the evening. Based on a test and on your situation, we advise a Dutch course.

A test

Do you want to do a test to know your level of Dutch, but you do not look for a Dutch course? That is possible. Visit the Dutch Language House and do a test. The duration of the test depends on your level of Dutch.

Signing up for a course

After getting an advice, you decide wether or not to sign up for the course.

For most courses in Dutch-speaking adult education in Brussels you can sign up at the Dutch Language House.


  • Our advice is free.
  • Do you want to sign up for a Dutch course? You pay a maximum of 54 euros if you live in a Brussels municipality. Don’t live in Brussels? Then you will pay a maximum of 126 euros per course.
  • Level B2 courses (3.1, 3.2) and higher: a maximum of 117 euros per module.
  • Do you sign up a fourth time for the same level? Then the course is more expensive (maximum 360 euros + book fee).
