Course Material

This course covers the entire book Nederlands in actie.

  • Nederlands in actie (Coutinho, 2012, 3rd edition)
    B. de Boer, B. Lijmbach and M. van der Kamp
    ISBN: 9789046902981
    Price: € 42.95

The course material is compulsory and must be purchased by the student. For a number of courses on location, you can purchase the book directly upon registration; you will then receive the book before or during your first lesson from the Language Centre.

If you cannot select the book during registration, you must purchase the book yourself. The book is available at our Support Office during opening hours,  check here  if and when the desk is open. The book can also be purchased as an e-book or regular book at your local bookstore, or online bookstores such as  Coutinho  and  Bol.com. When purchasing a regular book online, pay attention to the delivery time to ensure that you receive the book on time.

Along with this book you will receive an individual code for a website offering complementary exercises, spoken text fragments, movies and songs. This code is linked to your e-mail address. You will need access to the website to be able to adequately participate in the course. If you purchase a book from someone else, you will not be able to use his or her personal code and thus will not have access to the website. However, the codes can be bought separately via the publisher Coutinho.


Dutch conversation meetings

Dual Career Support organises weekly Dutch conversation meetings. During these meetings, which will be held online due to the coronavirus, you can practice your Dutch, guided by a Dutch-language coach. The meetings are for international staff and their partners with a minimum level of A2 (CEFR).

Would you like to practice your Dutch and do you have the minimum level of A2 (CEFR)? Sign up via the registration form.
