Do you want to improve your English? Our courses will bring you up to speed. We have about twenty different options, so we have something at every level. From Beginner to Proficiency, from language to literature, taking in business English and exam training on the way. In September and January we offer our full range of 12- or 18-week courses, and in late spring we offer an extra round of short courses, including exam training workshops and conversation classes.
What level are you at? Are you not sure what your level is in English? Have a look here. If you want to take a course at Beginner, Elementary or Pre-intermediate level, you can register immediately via the website. For courses at Intermediate level and above, you will have to speak to a teacher first. Online registration is only possible for lower level courses. Higher level courses are indicated by a button marked ‘Information’.
Voor iedereen die Nederlands spreekt en nog niet uitgebreid met het Engels heeft kennisgemaakt, of de taal weer wil oppakken en verbeteren, zijn dit de cursussen bij uitstek. Er wordt tijdens de les al in het Engels gelezen, geoefend en gesproken, maar ook nog veel uitgelegd in het Nederlands, en zo komen we steeds een stapje verder.

These courses range from Beginner to Proficiency and are taught entirely in English. As well as working on speaking and listening, reading and writing, in our higher level courses we’ll also be picking up tips for public speaking from TED Talks.

You already know a lot of English, but when you try to speak you are not happy with your fluency. An English conversation course will help you to ‘find your voice’. We offer conversation classes from Pre-Intermediate to Advanced.
What's different in business language? You already know the rules for grammar and vocabulary in everyday life, but business language can be slightly different and that's why we offer a business course. Click on the link for details.
Nothing beats a good book, except perhaps being able to talk about it as well as read it. Volksuniversiteit Amsterdam brings interesting books and interested people together. Check out this season’s reading list and join us!
You are used to speaking English at work or with friends but sometimes you feel that you can't remember the proper grammar rules. Or perhaps you would like to improve your pronunciation. Or your English is already up to the standard needed for a Cambridge certificate but you’d like to be well prepared for the exams. If you don’t find the workshop you are looking for, let us know and we’ll see if we can schedule what you need.
You've been studying English for years and want to put the icing on the cake with an internationally-recognised Cambridge certificate at B2, C1 or even C2 level. We will help you to dot those i's, cross those t's and do yourself justice in the official exams. The world is your oyster!
