Dutch 0 > A1 intensive - in person

At the moment there are no courses open for registration. The next intensive course round will start in January 2023. If you subscribe to our newsletter, we will keep you informed about the exact start of the course registration.


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 A1.

This course will be taught as an intensive two-week group course. Per week, on four days you have three hours of lessons. In addition, you can count on a total of 30 hours of self study.

This course is openly accessible to UG staff and students as well as external parties. International students, PhDs' and postdocs of the University of Groningen are being offered these Dutch courses at the Language Centre by the Board of the University of Groningen. Read everything about these regulations and see if it applies to you here.

Advice
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. UG students, external students and UG staff can register directly for a beginners' course without having to receive an advice first.

Course Material
In this course, the first half of the book Nederlands in gang is covered. The course material is compulsory and must be purchased by the student.
