The Dutch Learning Center has a great Instagram page, where they are one of the loyal followers and fans of They have been following us actively since almost a year now. Obviously, we wanted to know everything about them, so we started a conversation and decided to dedicate our first part of this ongoing Dutch Teaching in the Spotlight series about this amazing center on the amazing continent of Africa.

This incredible Dutch language institute, with its founder from Amsterdam, actually became officially recognised since January 2019, this year. Dutch Learning Center Ghana provides Dutch lessons in small groups, to adults and children. Joan, the founder of Dutch Learning Center Ghana, says alot of their adult students have a Dutch partner. For those students, it is important to learn the language in order to communicate with their families.

The Dutch Learning Center regularly posts testimonials of their students together with interesting clips on (Dutch) language learning. In this recent clip you can learn about the importance and benefits of bilingualism. Very interesting! We at asked our friends at the Dutch Learning Center in Ghana some questions about teaching Dutch and their vision on Dutch learning.

Why did you start teaching Dutch and what is your vision with your Dutch institute?

‘I started teaching Dutch when I sa how people showed interest. They always come asking “how do you say this and that in Dutch?”. People approached me telling me she was writing the inburgering exams and she needed help. This informed my decision to start the Dutch lessons.”

My goal is to help people speak, read and write Dutch with our tailor-made lessons, to suite every individual needs accordingly. Our vision: to be the leading Dutch Center in Africa, especially in Ghana!’

How long have you been living in the Amsterdam and where did you stay exactly?

‘I have stayed in the Netherlands for 13 years – I was born there! We lived in Amsterdam Zuid-Oost, de Bijlmer’.

Do you have any nice personal stories from your teaching experience, about your Dutch school etc.?

‘At the Dutch Learning Center we are family and friends. We respect human rights as well. People from all walks of life come to us – different countries and religions. Children too enjoy our learning experience. The connection we have with our students is always a beautiful one and an experience worthwhile’

This beautiful Dutch language school in Ghana provides home tuition as well.
