Dutch for Beginners
The pace of our course will be high. You can expect lively lessons with lots of activity and a diverse range of exercise formats. Our programme is not an "Inburgeringscourse".
Does this appeal to you? Do you have enough time available? Like 4 to 5 hours study load per week? In our programmes you will be able to a significant amount of Dutch in a short period of time.
For example, after an 8 week evening programme you will be able to give a short presentation in Dutch about your work/profession or on a subject of special interest. You will have the ability to write a short note/email and most importantly, you will be able to communicate spontaneously in Dutch. Of course this will be at a slow pace and with a limited vocabulary, but you will dare to do it without feeling embarrassed.
We equip you with the capabilities you need, to start communicating with the Dutch in Dutch.
