About LanguageOne

Are you and your family planning to move abroad soon? Or have you and your family already been living in another country than your homeland for some time, for instance as an expat? It is important to choose the right education for your child, even if you live abroad. English is often the spoken language at international schools, which means that the command of the Dutch language or mother tongue can be falling behind.

Are you looking for Dutch education for your child? LanguageOne is your partner worldwide. We provide Dutch Language and Cultural education to Dutch-speaking students aged 3 to 18 years.

More than 40 years’ experience

We are an authority in the field of mother tongue and cultural education for children who live abroad.

The right level

Improving the Dutch language is important. In particular when a child returns to the Netherlands. We ensure that your child meets the language requirements which are necessary for entry in Dutch education.

Personal guidance and expertise

From local directors to teachers, we only work with certified teachers who give your child the necessary guidance.

Online and In-Class

Our pupils always have an international connection with the Dutch language and culture. Wherever you are, LanguageOne offers in-class as well as online courses.
