Learn professional German
During your German course at Regina Coeli, you’ll learn more than you ever thought possible. Our lessons cannot be compared with the German lessons you might have had at school in the past. With us, you learn to communicate in German instead of spending loads of time studying grammar in detail.
You get to work one-on-one on your personal goals with your language trainer(s). Whether you want to give a presentation to a German client, learn to write e-mails better and faster or make a phone call more easily, you can do it all in your training. You get a lot of practise using role-plays, for example, so you can immediately start using German at work after your training.
A student about her German course
'The institute is extraordinarily professional; it’s all in the details. This course was a gift to myself and it truly feels like one!’
Director of SYARK green concepts
An optimal environment for learning German
Regina Coeli stems from an international order of nuns, and in the past, those nuns gave the lessons. That’s why we’re also known as ‘the Nuns of Vught’.
Even though the sisters no longer work at the institute, you still notice the tranquillity, cleanliness, and order that are part of their legacy. After all, these things make it is easy to concentrate on learning languages.
We believe that your effectiveness skyrockets when you learn to speak another language and that the impact of organisations greatly increases when employees speak multiple languages.
We’ve set up our institute in such a way that you can keep a distance of 1.5 metres from each other and your language trainers, and we’ve taken additional hygiene measures so you can have a worry-free learning experience at our institute.
Your personal language training
You have an extensive intake interview with a language trainer beforehand so we can design an optimal individual language training programme for you. In it, we make a list of what you want to be able to do by the time you’ve finished your training and put together a programme to meet those goals. Next, you receive a personal proposal from us. Once you’ve signed it, you get to start preparing for your course.

Frequently asked questions about the German courses at Regina Coeli
Can I learn German in a week?
You can learn a lot in a week, and we even hear from students that they learned more in five days than in all their years at school. That’s because you learn in an extremely focused manner and follow an intensive programme which brings you into a flow.
By the way, in addition to the classic ‘week to the nuns’, you can also opt to come for a weekend or another type of short training.
How do you decide what my training programme will be like?
Your programme’s design is based on your personal goals. You discuss these during your intake, after which the language trainer puts together a programme for you. The language trainers also immerse themselves in your situation to make the lessons as valuable as possible for you.
Do the lessons take place in a cloister?
Our current building is built on the grounds of the former cloister. It’s a thoroughly modern building where space and tranquillity are taken into account. Most students have their course here.
Do you have to stay the night at Regina Coeli?
We cordially invite you to spend the night in our accommodation, but we don’t require it. If you do you stay at Regina Coeli, though, you’ll be much more focused on the task at hand.
When can I come to Regina Coeli?
As a result of the COVID measures, we are temporarily unable to accommodate as many students as we normally can in Vught. As a result, we have to work with a waiting list. The next possible starting date for your course depends on your requirements and the language you wish to learn.
For current course availability, please call 073-6848790.
Would you like to start sooner? In most cases, you can get started with a series of online lessons or choose to follow your programme entirely online.
How much does a German course cost?
The indicative costs for a day of language training at our institute can be found on our fees page. During your intake, you’ll discuss how many days you’ll need to reach your goals, and, based on that, you will receive a personal quote.
