Day Courses Beginners Intensive 1 en 2 (A0 -A2)

If you wish to learn Dutch efficiently in a short time you can choose between a 3 or 2 week small group course.
We call them Summer or Winter programmes . The 3 week course has no lessons on Fridays. The 2 week day course is quite demanding with 5 mornings a week.


Intensive 3 week Winter/Summer Course (A1++)

This course is for the student who wants to learn a lot in a short period of time. 4 to 5 hours study time per day is recommended. Lessons are in the mornings excluding Friday. The afternoons or evenings you would need to learn new words and make the assignments for the lesson next day.
In this course no fieldtrips and excursions. Our focus is on studying in a very intensive way.
The teaching atmosphere will be informal and you will feel comfortable right from the start. A variety of activities and teaching formats will lead you to understanding the structure of the Dutch language and this ensures that you will speak Dutch correctly right from the start. You will also work with other students on assignments.
This lively course rewards your commitment with well-grounded elementary Dutch.
You will have the confidence and capabilities needed to start communicating in Dutch with the Dutch.
You also will have better insight in Dutch society and the culture, as well as typical Dutch communication in formal and informal situations.
You will finish the course with a written and oral test which can lead to a certificate qualifying up to A-1++ .

For enrolment no knowledge of Dutch required. This course is for students with an advanced educational background ( BA +). Instruction language: English.
