Regina Coeli Language Weekend

Learn a language at the weekend

Do you have too little time on working days yet would like to get better in a foreign language? Spend a weekend at Regina Coeli in Vught and start using your new skills as early as the following Monday!

Concentrate on your own goals

When you come for a weekend, you work one-to-one on your personal learning goals with your language trainers. We determine these together during your intake so that you have achievable goals for the weekend and can concentrate fully on learning the language. You can always book several weekends if you want to make bigger leaps forward.

We can receive fewer students at the weekend than on weekdays. If you want to be sure you can come for a specific weekend, book on time. 

Note: The language weekend Dutch is only suitable for people with a level of A2.2 or higher.

The programme

We welcome you to our institute at 19.00 on Friday evening. At that time, you receive your individual lesson programme and a short explanation of your language training, and you get to know the other course members who are also there that weekend. You then take a seat at the table and enjoy dinner, which takes place entirely in the target language (if possible).

When you come for a weekend, you have a total of 7 private lessons, 7 study hours, three group activities and two language tables.

A relaxing and fully catered stay

You have the opportunity to stay at Regina Coeli in Vught during your training because this allows you to concentrate fully on learning the language at our language institute. There are few distractions, and you are fully cared for during your stay. We provide delicious, healthy meals and you can spend the night in our accommodation.

You can meet and spend time with other (international) students between lessons. Then you have the chance to practise the language right away and informally with others. This alternation between lessons and informal learning greatly contributes to the effectiveness of your training.
Our facilities exude tranquillity, and you reap the benefits of that. It allows you to enjoy the weekend, even while working hard on your language skills.

Frequently asked questions about training weekends at Regina Coeli

What can I achieve in a weekend?
A weekend is suitable for working on one or two concrete learning goals. In addition, the group activities led by language trainers allow you to practice your speaking skills in a group setting. This makes it easier for you to speak the language.
If you want to learn more, you can always combine a weekend with lesson days during the working week or another weekend.

I’m a beginner. Is a weekend suitable for me?
A weekend training is not suitable for all languages. The weekend Dutch is only suitable for people with A2.2 level or higher. For the other languages, we advise you to come for at least two weekends. As a beginner, you will not have learned enough after one weekend to use the language properly in practice.

How much does training at Regina Coeli cost?
You can find our fees on our rates page.

Who gives the training?
You receive private lessons from Regina Coeli language trainers. They are all highly educated native speakers and have a great deal of experience providing language training to adults.

Is it possible to follow a course without staying overnight?
Yes, you can if you live close to the institute. We advise you to stay overnight at Regina Coeli so you can stay focused on learning the language as much as possible.
