This course is for you if:

You wish to start studying Dutch but you don’t have the time to invest in a group course.

You want to be able to study in your own time and at your own pace.

You might have studied some basics before, but you feel like you need a structured and fun recap and want to extend your Dutch skills from there.

You want to be able to repeat the videos as often as you can and you enjoy studying on your own.

"I decided to take your beginners course and have been learning since this week, every day. I have to say that it was a hit! I've done 3 Dutch courses in my life, including one online but none that I liked so much. I am happy to be able to repeat and consolidate basics in such a well organised way. There are elements of grammar that I knew about but only now I fully understood them. There is a quintessence in your videos (great visuals) and the fact that you speak to us is a bonus for the pronunciation (BTW: I like very much your voice, humour and feel like smiling when I see and hear you). I really like that you give several versions for the same expresion, you rapidly point out exceptions and practical use of the Dutch language. Loved this course!"

What is it?

This Beginners Course is a self-study course in the online Mama Dutch Academy, where you can study everything through videos. On the private website you will get access to four chapters which include 4 to 6 videos on different subjects. The videos vary in duration but they are a maximum of 15 minutes long. You can study at your own time, at your own pace. 

I’ve divided the course into four chapters:

Chapter 1:

Introductions and greetings

The Alphabet


Verb conjugation 

Days, months & seasons

Chapter 2

Word order & question words

Family & possessive pronouns

Small talk

De or Het?


Chapter 3

Fruit, veggies & plural form

Ordering & imperative + ‘maar’

Giving opinion & comparative

Modal verbs

Telling time

Chapter 4



Colors, clothes & demonstratief pronomen

Object form

House, furniture & prepositions

→ Plus a full-hour masterclass on the past tense AND a bonus mini-masterclass on reduced speech (the mumbling that Dutchies do when they don’t follow the text-book Dutch that you are taught in other courses).

→ You’ll retain access to the page for as long you need, so you’ll have enough time to review what you’ve learned. 

→ The course materials will be delivered in videos, where I explain everything you need to know with the help of slides. You also have the option to listen to the audio of the lesson, if that works better for you. And there’s an option to download the slides

At the end of each lesson I give you tips on how to practice more, and you can take a short quiz!

About the teacher

My name is Mariska and as a teacher, I believe that learning a new language can be a stress-free and enjoyable activity that easily integrates into your busy life. Over the years, I’ve seen so many students lose the joy of learning Dutch. After taking a typical Dutch course, you might believe that you’re either too old or too busy to learn Dutch. Or that there’s no need to learn the language because everybody speaks English.

In this Beginners Course I’ve put together my 8+ years of experience in teaching beginners.  I always love to teach beginners, but I wanted to be able to help more people. This is why I created this course—to give you a flexible and relaxed introduction into the Dutch language. The best part: you can study at your own pace and in your own home (or even during your commute to work!). Whatever suits you best. 

Excited to get started?

In this course you will learn everything you need to know to get to A1 level.

At the end of this course you will know the basics, how to order in a restaurant, giving your opinion, how to do small talk, talking about colors and clothes and your house and much more!

By taking this course you will have all tools in hand to feel more at ease and at home here in The Netherlands.

Is this course in English? Ja, all of my explanations, the slides and the quizzes will be in English.

Is it a group course? No, it's a self-study course which you can do online. You only need a computer and something to make notes and you're good to go! I do encourage you to find a (Dutch) buddy - so you will have someone to practice with.

What happens after I signed up? You will receive two emails. One with the confirmation of the payment and the second one with your personal username and password for the academy. You can now log in and start learning!

How long do I have access to the course materials? You will retain access to the online Academy for an unlimited amount of time.

How long will it take me to get to level A1? This really depends on how much time you have to put into the course. There is a total number of 21 videos, ranging from 7 to 15 minutes each.

I want to learn until A2, can I take this course? Yes of course you can make a good start with this course, but it will not take you to A2 (yet). I am planning on extending the course later.
