Dutch 0 > A2 for newcomers: civic integration
This course is intended for highly educated civic integration participants whose mother tongue and/or cultural background is radically different from the Dutch language and Western culture. This may cause you to require more time to learn Dutch. The course will teach you Dutch from level 0 to A2 and will focus on several aspects of Kennis van de Nederlandse Maatschappij (KNM, Knowledge of Dutch Society). In addition, attention will be paid to intercultural communication and study skills. Pronunciation support by a speech therapist is also available as part of the course.
The course comprises 108 contact hours, divided into 36 lessons of 3 hours each. Per week, you will have 9 hours of lessons and you will need to spend 9 to 12 hours on self-study. Please take this time into account in order to be able to follow the course properly. The use of a laptop or computer is necessary to prepare well for the lessons. In addition to the lessons, you will have a total of three mentor meetings to guide you through the learning process and to discuss your progress.
In the lessons, we will spend extra time on speaking skills, pronunciation, and listening and writing assignments. You will regularly receive individual feedback on your assignments. There are fixed assessment moments during the course and listening and reading tests at A2 level must be taken at the end of the course. The teacher will then assess whether all of your skills (reading, listening, speaking, and writing) have reached A2 level.
