For over nineteen years, Dutch For Expats has been teaching Dutch to diplomats, business people and other internationals living in The Hague/Wassenaar, Amsterdam, Leiden, Rotterdam, Delft
and other Dutch cities.

Started by Cynthia Mulder, the language school has helped the Netherlands’ international community to settle in into their new home and to participate fully in the cultural life of their host country.

Who are we?

Our team are all native Dutch speakers and are fully qualified language teachers.
We all have first-hand experience of what it’s like to live and work abroad – and we all know the trials and joys of learning a new language.
