Pace makes learning Dutch enjoyable and simple

Pace Language Institute owns two establishments, one in Amsterdam Zuid and one in Amsterdam Oost. We have spacious, brightly-lit classrooms, including an open study centre set up with computers with internet connection and audio-visual equipment. By offering these facilities, Pace makes learning Dutch easier and more accessible. Both establishments have a cafeteria with free coffee and tea for all students, enabling them to meet and practice among each other, making learning a new language even more fun!

The stories of...



The biggest transition of Ana’s life wasn’t fueled by politics, war, or money. It was driven by love. I married my Dutch boyfriend and moved to Amsterdam. I’m excited about my
future here. I can’t wait to see what comes next.


A student once told me, “You’re not a robot.” That was the best compliment I could have gotten. Every group is different and requires a new approach.
