The Hague City Council:

Foreign Affairs provides The Hague City Council with language courses aimed at helping The Hague International Centre's staff provide an even more professional level of service.

'The Hague International Centre hired Foreign Affairs to provide tailor-made, in-company courses aimed at improving its professional English-language skills. Thanks to Wendy and her trainer's efforts, we developed a programme that's truly invaluable to all its participants. Foreign Affairs' personal, yet professional approach allows both the client and participants to make the most out of these tailor-made courses.
I can recommend one of Foreign Affairs' custom programmes to anyone looking to improve his/her professional language skills. The returns made on individual programmes are many times greater than regular classical language teaching.'
