Dutch A2/B1 > B1 intensive

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. The intended final level of the course is CEFR A2/B1.

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, you either have lessons on two days, of three hours (from 9.00 to 10.30 and from 13.00 to 14.30) and on two days of one and a half hours (from 9.00 to 10.30), or you have lessons on three days, of three hours (from 9.00 to 10.30 and from 13.00 to 14.30). 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.

Students who already have some knowledge of Dutch at A2/B1 level, to be demonstrated with an advice card, may take a level A2/B1>B1 course. In order to receive an advice card, please attend the Dutch Office Hour or take the level A2>A2/B1 course.

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.

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.
