CERAN's Intensive Dutch Programme for Juniors & Teens uses its unique teaching methods to teach students to communicate with confidence. CERAN's teachers are all experienced and qualified native Dutch speakers, specially trained to help students progress quickly and reach their language goals. Campers are supervised and supported in and outside of classes, and encouraged to speak Dutch at all times and as much as possible (including class breaks and meals).
