0 > A2 for newcomers: civic integration (108 hours)

Duration:12 weeks
Studyload:108 contact hours and 108 hours of independent study. Each week: 9 contact hours (3*3) and 9 to 12 hours of independent study.
Audience:You speak little or no Dutch (CEFR level: 0). Knowledge of English is mandatory, since explanations will be given in English.

This course is intended for highly educated people who are going through the civic integration process and whose mother tongue and/or cultural background is radically different from the Dutch language and Western culture. This is the reason you need some more time to learn Dutch.

The course comprises 108 contact hours. The course teaches you Dutch from level 0 to A2 and focuses on several aspects of Kennis van de Nederlandse Maatschappij (KNM, Knowledge of Dutch Society). In addition, attention will be paid to intercultural communication and study skills. Pronunciation support by a speech therapist can be part of the course.
