This intensive beginners course is meant for people who have none or very little knowledge of Dutch and who want to learn the language at a high pace. In 8 weeks, you will reach level A2. This course is designed for people who are highly motivated and have good study skills. You have to have finished high school and you must be able to study independently outside the classes.
The method we use in this course is Nederlands in gang. This method is meant for those who want to function or study on a (near) academic level. In class, we focus on activities which require the presence of a teacher or fellow students, such as the training of conversation skills and explanation of grammar topics. We spend the time in classroom as efficiently as possible: everything that can be done individually will be done individually, at home. You have to spend around 20 hours per week on homework. There is a final exam in the last week of the course.
At the end of this course you will have level A2 in Dutch. You can continue with an Intermediate Course (to level B1) or you can prepare the Inburgeringsexamen.
If you prefer to learn Dutch at a slower pace, we recommend you to do the Beginners Evening Course 4 months – Van start.
