General information

The Language Centre of the University of Groningen offers Dutch language courses at multiple levels intended for different target groups. We teach our Dutch courses on-site as well as online.

In this comparison grid, you can see the exact differences between our interactive online group courses and our Online Dutch courses.

Your Level > Office Hour

The University of Groningen Language Centre Dutch courses for non-native speakers are described in terms of the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR). This is a reference framework developed by the Council of Europe that provides a basis for comparing language proficiency levels and interpreting test scores.

If you want to register for a Dutch course and you have not followed a course with the Language Centre before, you must visit the office hour. You can only register for a course if you have been given the matching advice.
