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 for the coming period! Per week, on two days you have three hours of lessons (from 9.00 to 10.30 and from 13.00 to 14.30) and on two days you have one and a half hours of lessons (from 9.00 to 10.30). 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. Read everything about these regulations and see if it applies to you here.

If you are not a student or staff member and you have not followed a course with the Language Centre before, you must visit the office hour. You can only register for this course if you have been given the matching advice.

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.

The book can also be purchased online as an e-book or regular book at, for example, CoutinhoBol.com, or any other online bookstore of your choice. When purchasing a regular book online, pay attention to the delivery time to ensure that you receive the book on time. You can also often buy the regular book directly from your local bookstore.

Along with this book you will receive an individual code for a website offering complementary exercises, spoken text fragments, movies and songs. This code is linked to your e-mail address. You will need access to the website to be able to adequately participate in the course.
