Conversational Dutch up to B1 - in person

Do you want to learn to speak Dutch more easily or fluently, and would you like some help in taking your speaking skills to the next level? Then look no further – this is the course for you!

In this course, we will work on improving your speaking skills by discussing a variety of topics in a number interactive ways. The course aims to help you to speak more fluently and confidently. Other exercises are intended to improve your understanding and, of course, you will work on your grammar and vocabulary as well. Due to the nature of the course, grammar is not explicitly covered but you will learn by doing.

In addition to feedback in class, you will receive feedback at four specific moments. Based on this feedback, you can continue to work on your personal focus points.

Duration: 4 weeks.
Studyload: 16 contact hours, approximately 16 hours of homework.
