Dutch A2/B1 > B1 intensive - online

At the moment there are no courses open for registration. The next intensive course round will start in January 2023. If you subscribe to our newsletter, we will keep you informed about the exact start of the course registration.


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! Per week, you have lessons on two days, of three hours and on two days of one and a half hours. 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.

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.
