welcome to the house of dutch

We are an association whose mission is to pass on the Dutch language in a personal and cosy environment. We are based in Bailleul, but are also present in Lille and Dunkerque. We also offer English language courses. 

Private individuals, school staff and companies can find training courses, learning materials, activities and trips adapted to their level and objective.

The city of Bailleul and the KFV Committee for French Flanders provide us with essential support, in particular with logistical assistance and annual grants.

Saint nicholas 2023

The House of Dutch celebrated Saint Nicholas! Saint Nicholas paid a visit, and the students from the B2+ group created a Saint Nicholas poem. Here, you can read their poetic talents. The texts are unchanged and have not been corrected.


“Opgewonden als vlooien wachtten we ongeduldig op onze kleine, ongewone cadeautjes. We waren niet teleurgesteld. We hebben de hele middag veel gelachen. We kijken uit naar volgend jaar! Dank u wel Sinterklaas.”
“In de MNL te Belle, is de Nederlandse lerares goed en leren we Nederlands op een vrolijke manier. Sinterklaas is zeer blij met ons en daarom heeft iedereen een cadeautje gekregen.”
Jean Yves
