.Who we are

“If learning a language hasn’t brought you joy, you’re doing it wrong. And if it hasn’t brought you despair, you’re not far enough along yet”

Nelson Mandela

Who we are

.Be the language is a Dutch company domiciled in the city of peace, The Hague. We are an international team of enthusiastic trainers, translators, interpreters and travel guides who like sharing their love of a language, a country and its culture with others.

Our language trainers

We know more than anybody else that the real challenge in learning a language lies in finding a way that fits in with the demands of a busy life. In our training, we aim especially at your talents, and we deploy your strong points and skills in learning the language. You will find our training is full of variation, passion and fun. It is dynamic, communication-focused and, in particular, very valuable! We think that boring classes where you sit quietly in your chair and only work your way through the exercises in your book are so twentieth century.

Our translators and interpreters

In a split second we can weigh every word and every phrase … We find the right meaning and colour when translating from one language to another. We not only translate words and phrases… We play with them until we have given expression to the deeper thoughts, feelings and meaning behind them. We are passionate about what we do and it is a great pleasure to us to be able to help you.

Our help on your business trip

We love to accompany companies on their business trip to (future) international clients. We are native speakers who not only teach you the language during your trip. We know our native country. We love showing you the local manners and cultural dos and don’ts so that you can get to know the country and its people. You will have language training in the morning, for example, and in the afternoon you are free to go to your prospect with your colleagues. It is a wonderful idea for us to be able to help your company open doors that would otherwise remain closed.

Learning another language is not only learning different words for the same things, but learning another way to think about things
