Dutch 0 > A1 intensive - online

Dutch is the language of instruction right from the start of the first lesson. The language courses concentrate on communication, and that means that the Dutch learnt is actively practised during class. Themes that will be dealt with include introducing yourself, ordering something in a café or restaurant, making an appointment, making suggestions, buying something at the market, asking the way and visiting the doctor or bike shop. The intended final level of the beginner’s course is CEFR A1.

This course will be taught as an online intensive two-week group course via Blackboard Collaborate; our online classroom! Per week, on two days you have three hours of lessons and on two days you have one and a half hours of lessons. In addition, you can count on a total of 30 hours of self study.  Read here about everything you can expect from an online language course.

This course is openly accessible to UG staff and students as well as external parties. International students, PhDs' and postdocs of the University of Groningen are being offered these Dutch courses at the Language Centre by the Board of the University of Groningen.

Dutch for native speakers of German
There are separate groups for German native speakers. Because German and Dutch are so similar, the material can be covered faster.

Paying with a DUO Loan
The Language Centre satisfies the Blik op Werk quality standard. This means you can pay for this course with your DUO loan.

Course Material
In this course, the first half of the book Nederlands in gang is covered. The course material is compulsory and must be purchased by the student.
