I highly recommend this programme. The UvA Talen team creates a friendly and supportive environment in which to learn a new language. I found their use of both classroom as well as Amsterdam museum settings particularly effective in learning practical Dutch.

About us

About UvA Talen inTense

UvA Talen inTense is an exclusive programme run by UvA Talen, aiming to provide high-quality, intensive language training. The programme is oriented towards motivated, quick-to-learn professionals and private participants.

In most cases, training is based on the principle of ‘full immersion’. This means that from early in the morning until late in the evening, participants are immersed in the language that they wish to learn. Participants have the option of staying in a pleasant and well-equipped hotel in the centre of Amsterdam for the duration of the programme.

What’s more, the wonderful city of Amsterdam does not merely serve as a backdrop to the programme. In order to ensure that you learn to deal with practical situations, every day, the programme includes one or more fun and instructive excursions. In addition, lunch and dinner are taken in an establishment in the city’s lively centre, accompanied by a language trainer.

UvA Talen inTense offers more than just full-immersion training, however. We also provide other forms of intensive training, with the option of accompanying overnight accommodation.

UvA Talen inTense provides training programmes in 12 different languages. Training programmes in other languages can be catered upon request.
