Information about and learning and speaking Dutch.

  • Dutch lessons for adults: there are several places in the Flemish Rand offering Dutch lessons. You can also learn Dutch in some of ‘de Rand’ centres.
  • Practice Dutch in your spare time: ‘de Rand’ has developed lots of language-related initiatives and a wide range of materials to help you to practice and improve your Dutch.
  • Language courses and workshops for children: children aged 4 to 12 making things and playing while learning and speaking Dutch, during the school holidays or days off during the school year.

Dutch lessons

A few adult education centres (CVO) provide Dutch lessons in ‘de Rand’ community centres.


Conversation groups

If you can speak Dutch quite well but would like some more practice, why not enrol with a ‘de Rand’ conversation group?


Babbelkous language IMMERSION

The school holidays are the ideal moment for children to participate in relaxing and enjoyable activities, and so that is the period when Panta Rhei and vzw ´de Rand´ organize creative and instructive language apprenticeships for all children from 4 to 12 years of age for whom Dutch is not their native language.

 Babbeltuur taalatelier

Babbeltuur language courses

Babbeltuur is a weekly workshop for children from 4 to 7 years old who do not have Dutch as their native language. This is an excellent occasion to tinker and play in Dutch for 8 weeks!



Pictogram booklets

Our four pictogram booklets contain a theme-specific series of images. Next to each image or pictogram is the right word in Dutch.



Dictionary for newcomers

Vzw ‘de Rand’ is publishing a bilingual dictionary for non-native speaking newcomers, called Jouw vragen ondertiteld ('Your questions with subtitles').


CD & SHOW Bonski

Lennaert & de Bonski’s have created a show for people learning Dutch. De Bonski’s kennen hun wereld is full of Dutch-style world music. But this time around, cultural identity is to the fore.



Taalblad is an e-zine for people learning Dutch. It features up-to-date information, language trips and Dutch exercises. The more difficult terms are translated into English and French.


Oefen hier je nederlands

Oefen hier je Nederlands provides addresses near your home where you can practice your Dutch.

Agenda - Speak

Sportstage Nederlands - sport en oefen Nederlands !

For children whose mothertongue is not Dutch, learning and practising Dutch during the holidays is absolutely beneficial. Therefore the vzw 'De Rand' and Amitabha are organizing a sports training that at the same time stimulates language learning.
