Conversational Dutch up to A2

This course is specifically aimed at students who would like some more speaking practice before moving on to a higher level, or whose oral skills are currently insufficient.

The course will focus on conversational skills. Various topics will be discussed using different working methods. This is not a grammar course. The emphasis will lie on learning to speak more fluently. However, speaking exercises with a grammar component may be included in the course. This course is intended for those who have taken a Level A2 course at the Language Centre or have reached a comparable level of proficiency (CEFR level A2).

Duration: 4 weeks.

Studyload: 16 contact hours, approximately 8 hours of homework.

This course will be taught as an online interactive group course via Blackboard Collaborate; our online classroom for the coming period! Read here what you can expect from an online interactive group course.

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.
