During this online exam training, we will prepare you for the reading, listening, speaking, and writing exams. You will also receive help to expand your vocabulary. This course is intended for participants who have reached level B2 in Dutch and want to practise extensively for the State Exam NT2, Programme II.
Each week, you will receive exercises to be carried out independently, at a time that is convenient for you. There will also be assignments that you can work on together with other course participants. Additionally, in weeks 2 and 5, there will be interactive group sessions with a teacher and some of your fellow participants. These sessions will be scheduled in such a way that everyone can participate. We will use Skype to communicate with each other during these sessions. Therefore, you will need your own Skype account.
In week 6, you will take a full exam for each skill, after which you will receive feedback. This will be the exam from 2017, so be sure not to take this exam in advance. This way, you will be well-prepared for the real exams.
