Dutch A1 > A2 - in person

At the moment there are no courses open for registration. The next course round will start in February. 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. 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 A2.

This course is given on location in Groningen. We teach in the city centre or at Zernike. The schedule shows which location applies to each group. The course consists of 24 contact hours, per lesson you should count on 2-3 hours of self-study.

Advice
If you want to register for a course at this level 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.

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