Taalthuis was founded by Margreet van ‘t Haaff in 2006. Margreet studied Dutch language and literature at the University of Leiden. When she had finished her studies she worked for ten years as a communications expert in both business and education and as a Dutch teacher in highschool.
As a mother of three children she started to teach Dutch as a second language to expats and au pairs in her own house. Her au pair also wanted to learn Dutch and meet other au pairs at the same time. She then decided to make it possible for au pairs and students to learn Dutch and meet each other in special groups.
Since 2006 thousands of au pairs and expats learned Dutch at Taalthuis. Taalthuis develops the course materials itself for the Beginner and Intermediate levels. Taalthuis now has 8 lesson locations all over the Netherlands.
