Our Mission

“The Ministry of Defence is extremely pleased with the collaboration. In my role as the spider in the web I am particularly satisfied with the way in which all agreements are met: Talen Twente makes perfect arrangements for the lecturers, and they are always on time, give the lessons in a highly professional manner - and they are all very pleasant. In addition, I'd also like to compliment you on your efforts, especially because I frequently submit registrations late. However, these are always processed very smoothly as well.”
A. Pennings, Ministry of Defence, DIVI/OTR Ede

Talen Twente - formerly Talenpracticum Twente - has been providing practice-oriented language and culture courses to professionals from every sector of the business community, authorities and non-profit organisations since 1969. Talen Twente's mission is to give managers and professionals the capability and self-confidence needed to communicate effectively and successfully in their chosen language.

The quality of our professional service, trainers and methods is assured by our CEDEO certification. CEDEO certification is granted to training institutes solely when at least 80% of their customers are extremely satisfied with the quality.

A variety of studies reveal that the great majority of our customers repeatedly make use of Talen Twente's services. Many of our customers praise the national coverage achieved by the five branches in Amsterdam, Arnhem, Papendrecht, Rijswijk and Zeist. In addition, many of our customers are extremely enthusiastic about the opportunities for in-company courses and blended learning.  

Talen Twente is a member of the Laudis Group, three companies of which are specialised in language and culture courses. In addition to Talen Twente, these companies are Talen Twente in Enschede, and NewLanguage, which operates from Belgium and Ireland.
