Our approach

The course will start from the very beginning and take you up to level A1/A2. You will learn to deal with basic everyday situations in the Dutch language. All language skills are addressed: reading, listening, speaking and writing.  


What can you expect?

The emphasis of the course is placed on communication, rather than grammar, so that you will quickly and effortlessly get started in Dutch. However, some study work at home and practice is recommended.


We work towards level A1 of the Common European Framework for Languages: an ability to deal with simple, straightforward information and begin to express themselves in familiar situations.


A pre-course assessment is part of the registration process. We will contact you to establish your specific learning objectives, language background and entrance level.
