Dutch for professionals A1 > A2 intensive - in person

At the moment there are no courses open for registration. If you subscribe to our newsletter, we will keep you informed about the exact start of the course registration.


This course is intended for professionals within and without the University of Groningen. Participants speak little Dutch (CEFR level A1). This is a one-week intensive course which consists of 20 contact hours and 20 hours of self-study. Lessons will take place from 9-11 a.m and 1-3 p.m. There will be time for independent study between and after the meetings.

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.

Group Size
There is a maximum of 6 participants. The course will take place with a minimum of 4 participants.
