This course is taught in Dutch and also in English. Our programme aims to develop the four language skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing as well as cultural awareness. It provides a good balance between understanding the culture, vocabulary and grammar structures of the Dutch language and enhancing communication and interaction. It supports comprehensive and productive skills in speech and writing through authentic based activities and guided practice in the use of Dutch language. Students will be encouraged to seek opportunities to learn and practise the four skills outside the classroom taking advantage of learning resources provided by tutors and the programme. Group size is limited to 12 students and planned to allow intensive interactive practice with individual feedback and advice on progress.
Upon completing the Post-beginners Level 2 course, you can progress onto the Intermediate Level 3 course.
