Course Description

Are you a beginner in Dutch (level A1) and do you find speaking particularly difficult? Not just forming sentences, but pronouncing words and saying whole sentences? Then this is the course for you! Conversation will be the main focus. We will talk about many different subjects and use several different ways of working. We will also pay a lot of attention to correct pronunciation of Dutch sounds and will practise word stress and sentence intonation. This is not a grammar course; The emphasis is on learning to speak more fluently. Speaking exercises in which attention is paid to grammar can still be part of the course, though. The course will improve your speaking skills, pronunciation and ability to make yourself understood.
