Intensive Dutch courses daytime

These intensive Dutch courses in daytime integrate level A0 to A2 level or  A2 to B1 level. 

Course A0 - A2 is open for people who have none or very little knowledge of the Dutch language but basic knowledge of English at level A2 and Roman script is required. Instruction in English/Dutch for the first 2 weeks. This course takes 4 weeks in total. It is possible to do this course in 2 parts. So from A0 tot A1 in two weeks and from A1 to A2 in two weeks. This is not a course specifically for 'inburgering'.

Upon completing you will be able to have a basic conversation about everyday subjects, such as family, study, work, visiting the doctor and going out. All basic language skills are dealt with: speaking, listening, reading and writing. Texts and topics of conversation are centred around everyday situations. 

You will learn approximately 1300 new words in 2 weeks. And that is very fast! Learning a language is topsport for your brain so please allow yourself enough time to absorb everything that you learned. 

We use 'Nederlands in gang' as textbook. This method is meant for those who want to function or study on a (near) academic level. The pace is fast and you are expected to spend about 12 hours per week on homework. In class, you participate actively and focus on activities which require the presence of a teacher.

All teachers are well qualified, well organised and experienced. They give feedback on what is going right and wrong, they give tips about learning and they make sure that you get a lot of personal attention. The course is concluded with a test in week 2 and/or 4 and a certificate of attendance (minimum attendance 80%).
