Learning a foreign language at Una Paloma Blanca

Una Paloma Blanca provides training in 9 languages - English, Dutch, Spanish, French, German, Italian, Brazilian and European Portuguese, Chinese Mandarin and Polish - taught by licensed, experienced, native-speaking teachers. Each course begins with an assessment of your current level in the language you want to study or practice. To support our method, we have a selection of the best teaching materials available for each language, supplemented with proprietary materials such as books, games, and digital media.

Pichon (Beginner)

Levels A1/A2

As a PICHON, you will spend the first few lessons learning to introduce yourself, read a menu, and ask for directions.

Students at this level will take part in a variety of fun games and activities designed to give you plenty of real-world practice and help you quickly gain confidence speaking the language of your choice.

Paloma (Intermediate)

Levels B1/B2

As a PALOMA, your lessons will be focused on basic conversational skills. You'll also dive deeper into the grammar side of things with the help of your teacher, with some educational games to practice what you've learned.

At this level we also focus on vocabulary enrichment by engaging in conversation about current events and topics related to your interests or field of work/study.

Paloma Blanca (Expert)

Levels C1/C2

As a PALOMA BLANCA, you're in the home stretch of language learning! During lessons at C1/C2 level, we'll address any residual grammar and pronunciation issues.

This course is ideal if you want to refresh your language skills or do business abroad.

Preperation for CEFR exams

Official language proficiency assessments are provided and certified by instutions such as the British Council for English, the Goethe-Institut for German, and DUO for Dutch.

While these exams are usually based on an official scale such as the CEFR, it's not enough to simply meet the level requirement - you should also be familiar with the exam's content and structure.

Our teachers can help you prepare for any official exam, offering expert guidance and tips to ensure you achieve the pass grade you need. Do you have any questions? Please let us know at: info@unapalomablanca.com :)

Group, duo or private lessons

Una Paloma Blanca offers three different lesson formats. Private lessons are 1-on-1 with the teacher, who will tailor their approach to your specific needs and ensure rapid progress.

Duo classes are for a maximum of two people, so you can study with a friend or (business) partner. Lessons in this format are also personalised according to your shared goals.

In group lessons, you will be assigned to a group with other students of your level in the language of your choice. Group sizes vary from 3 to 8 students.

Method

Plenty of speaking practice is the fastest way forward in any language!

This simple fact is at the centre of our approach to language education. At Una Paloma Blanca, we put away the books and help you learn the fun, fast, and efficient way - through playing interactive games and discussing the latest news and other interesting topics.

We start the intake process by getting to know you. What are your goals? A holiday in France? Emigrating to Spain? A fiancée in England? A new job in the Netherlands? Our experienced teachers can put together an individual, tailored study plan for you - whether you're taking a private, duo, or group course - and make sure you get all the personal guidance you need to help you fulfil your goals.

Lessons at Una Paloma Blanca also cover reading, writing, and listening practice in your language of study. Our library of high-quality educational materials includes the best reference and study books available, contemporary newspapers and magazines, and engaging digital media.

  • Testimonies

    Because I work in a department where English skills are very important to communicate with clients, I decided to follow a private intensive English course where I could quickly brush up my English knowledge and bring my writing and speaking skills to a C1 level. I liked most that the team of teachers immediately understood my needs and they focused on my preferences helping me achieving my goals in no time.

    Casper Janssen - Rabobank

    I had already a very good English level before I got lessons from the teachers of Una Paloma Blanca, but after following the Business English Program at the language school, I noticed my confidence with the language increased quite a lot, specially when it came to speeches and team presentations. Thank you very much for all your help!

    Speaking is always the most challenging part of any new language, and with Dutch it feels even more difficult for me personally... I just can't gather the courage to try and verbalise sentences, but I am aware it’s maybe the most important part of becoming fluent. That’s what I most appreciate in our teacher at Una Paloma Blanca - however broken we may speak, she's always encouraging, fun and has a friendly, empathetic way of correcting us. That’s highly important to keep the motivation going and practice even outside the group, in real life.

    When it comes to businesses with international clients, languages are key. That’s why I decided to sign up for a speaking French course at Una Paloma Blanca. In a short time and with a tailored program I improved my French skills as quickly and steadily as possible, working around my busy schedule. Thanks to the commitment of my teacher plus the lesson plan and the follow up, my French speaking skills improved enormously.
