Mixed-methods
For example you can choose to combine classroom lessons with e-learning. We will customise a learning plan with you.


Choose the tailor-made language course that suits you

A tailor-made language training is an effective way of meeting your personal goals and objectives. You can choose the topics which will be discussed, define the schedule in a way that suits your calendar, choose the location where the training will take place, determine specific learning objectives, and discuss the type of teaching that works best for you.

For individuals
Most individuals choose to take a private course, although it’s possible to follow a language training with someone else if you want to. Individual courses will take place in our building in Utrecht or online in the virtual classroom. You also can combine your courses with e-learning.

For companies:
You can decide whether the course will take place in a traditional classroom or online. Babel offers a wide range of services. For example, a tailor-made programme for new international employees or an organisational scan to provide a complete picture of the language level of employees. There is also the possibility for students to continue improving their language skills, even after they have finished the courses, using Babel’s Continuous Learning System (CLS).

To make sure you start a course at the right level for you, Babel offers a (free of charge) language level test. Based on the results, you will receive personal advice from one of our teachers. During the intake, we will discuss the results of the language test to create a tailor-made training for you.


Our online options for tailor-made language training

The advantage of an online tailor-made program is that you can work on your language skills from the comfort of your home or office. We offer lessons in the virtual classroom and in the form of e-learning. Below we explain the difference between the two methods.

E-learning (tailor-made)
Interactive learning content, videos and online exercises are part of the e-learning process. You can take these online courses and modules in your own pace and time. During the e-learning courses, you will receive feedback from an experienced teacher on your assignments. Here you can read more about our tailor-made e-learning.
Virtual classroom
In the virtual classroom, you will follow lessons online with other students at a fixed time, working with a trainer. You will be able to interact with your trainer and the other students. You can follow the online lessons from wherever you want as long as you have a working internet connection. The virtual classroom offers you a lot of functional tools, such as an interactive whiteboard and live quizzes to test your knowledge and language level. You can read more about the possibilities of the virtual classroom here.

What to expect from the classes?

Our language courses can be seamlessly adapted to suit your schedule and your learning objectives. This will ensure you get the most out of a training course. Below you can see an example of the learning approach:

Before the course, our teaching advisors will get in touch with you to create a program based on your goals. During this program, we will address the specific skills or topics required to achieve the desired goals.During the training, we closely observe your progress. The teacher will guide you through the process and give specific feedback.At the end of the course, you can choose to take an (official) final examination to determine your current level, if this is useful for you. With Babel’s Continuous Language Support you can also continue to improve your language skills, even after the language course has finished.

Cultural Awareness

Language and culture are inseparable. The evolution of language is often formed by the culture(s) it is used in. That’s why we pay special attention during our courses to the relations between the language and culture. During the courses, we will discuss, for example, differences in norms, manners, hierarchy and aspects of non-verbal communication in the cultures your language is spoken in. You will thus develop intercultural skills and learn to work effectively with foreign colleagues or customers. The course is completely tailored to the industry in which your organisation operates.
