Dutch Institute for Foreign Languages

A number of experienced and high qualified Dutch lecturers are ready to come down to Ghana as soon as the CORONA pandemic allows them to do so. This might be in the second quarter of this year, due to the progress with the extensive vaccination program that is carried out at present in The Netherlands and in Ghana.


A concept curriculum -called 996- has already been worked out by the lecturers. 996 stands for: lessons from 9 to 9 and 6 days a week. Based on their experiences with students from Ghana (who are already in the Netherlands), the expected course duration is 3 months. Exams are taken by the University of Leuven (Belgium) in cooperation with WAEC (Ghana).


The daily program consists of 4.5 hours of teaching and 4.5 hours of conversation. In the evening and week-ends there are discussion meetings on all kinds of subjects.

Overseas job content

During the daily conversation lessons, the HR Department of the future employer is to be contacted as much as possible through Skype or Zoom. Upon arrival, the work environment and job content should be fairly familiar already and unpleasant surprises are avoided.


For some students it will be difficult to find a place in Accra to stay. It is being investigated whether there is sufficient interest in staying in our own hostel. With 24/7 restaurant facilities.
