Dutch is the language of instruction right from the start of the first lesson. The language courses concentrate on communication, and that means that the Dutch learnt is actively practised during class. Themes that will be dealt with include introducing yourself, ordering something in a café or restaurant, making an appointment, making suggestions, buying something at the market, asking the way and visiting the doctor or bike shop. The intended final level of the beginner’s course is CEFR A2 .
Students who already have some knowledge of Dutch, to be demonstrated with an advice card, may take a level A1>A2 course. In order to receive an advice card, please attend the Dutch Office Hour or take the level 0>A1 course.
Dutch for native speakers of German
There are separate groups for German native speakers. Because German and Dutch are so similar, the material can be covered faster in a 0>A2 course (26 hours) and a follow up A2>B1 course (24 hours). Students who already have some knowledge of Dutch, to be demonstrated with an advice card, may also take a level A2>B1 course.
The courses will be held once a week during a period of 12/13 weeks or twice a week during a period of 6/7 weeks.
In addition to the classes you take each week, you will spend the same number of hours on independent study.
