Dutch A1 > A2 - in person
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.
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.
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.
- Nederlands in gang (chapters 8-16)
B. de Boer, M. van der Kamp, B. Lijmbach
ISBN 9789046905609 (3rd edition)
Along with this book you will receive an individual code for a website offering complementary exercises, spoken text fragments, movies and songs. You will need access to the website to be able to adequately participate in the course. The code can be bought separately via the publisher Coutinho.
Where can I buy the book?
- During registration in our course catalogue, you will then receive the book before or during your first lesson at the Language Centre.
- At the Support Office of the Language Centre during opening hours, see here if and when the desk is open.
- At your local bookstore, or online bookstores such as Coutinho and Bol.com. When buying a regular book online, please note the delivery time to ensure that you receive the book on time.
