Intensive Dutch courses

Duration: 1 week (intensive)
Studyload: 20 contact hours and 20 hours of independent study per course (8 hours per day)
Audience: Professionals within and without the University of Groningen. Participants speak little or no Dutch (CEFR level 0 or A1).

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. Themes that will be dealt with include introducing yourself, ordering something in a café or restaurant, making an appointment, making suggestions, buying something at the market, asking the way and visiting the doctor or bike shop.

Organisation

Lessons will take place from 9-11 a.m and 1-3 p.m. There will be time for independent study between and after the meetings.

Due to the corona measures, in contrast to previous communications, these intensive courses will be taught entirely online.

    B. de Boer, M. van der Kamp, B. Lijmbach
    ISBN: 9789046905609

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.
