Dutch Language Courses for Native Speakers of German

General information

The University of Groningen Language Centre offers courses in Dutch specifically for native speakers of German.

We offer standard group courses of various CEFR levels throughout the entire year, developed specifically for native speakers of German, who in general learn Dutch faster than other non-native speakers of Dutch because of linguistic similarities between German and Dutch.

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.

Registration procedure UG students and staff

Please note:  University of Groningen Bachelor's and Master's students, PhD students and postdocs need to follow a different registration procedure.
