At the Huis van het Nederlands you can:

You do a test and meet with an employee who will advise you on a course or activities to practice Dutch.

  • Allow half a day for your visit
  • Bring valid proof of identity

The Huis van het Nederlands 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 Huis van het Nederlands 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 Huis van het Nederlands.


  • Our advice is free.
  • Do you want to sign up for a Dutch course? You pay a maximum of 50 euros if you live in a Brussels municipality. Don’t live in Brussels? Then you will pay a maximum of 122 euros per course.
  • Level B2 courses (3.1, 3.2) and higher: a maximum of €122 per module
