Languages & Communication

The human race is defined by its ability to communicate. We do so with gestures, smiles, laughter and movement.

To be truly understood, however, we require language. Civilization is founded on the capacity to speak, write and record information.

Language allows us to establish contact with others, to participate in the workplace, the community, with our family and friends.

Learning a second language opens the door to another world of culture, of customs and of engagement. If you have a passion for travel, we can help you with your journey of understanding.

Our language courses include; Dutch, French, Indonesian, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish and Thai.

We also have courses for those who wish to learn more about writing and publishing – and public speaking.
