Dutch language courses

Do you want to study at ROC Midden Nederland, but you do not speak the Dutch language? You first need to follow a Dutch language course. Ask the library in your neighbourhood about language courses, if you already live in the Netherlands. Do you still live outside the Netherlands? On the internet you can find several online courses to learn Dutch.
