Dutch at pre-intermediate level

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!

This course is intended for participants who are able to understand Dutch and can get by in everyday situations. The course starts at pre-intermediate CEFR level A2/B1.

Study load

This course consists of 12 lessons. A lesson in an online course takes 1.5 hours, during an in person course a lesson takes 2 hours. In addition, you should count on a total of about 30 hours of self-study.

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