Dutch A1 > A2 - online

At the moment there are no courses open for registration. The next course round will start in September. 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 A2.

This course will be taught as an online interactive group course via Blackboard Collaborate; our online classroom for the coming period! One lesson lasts 90 minutes. Per lesson you should count on 2-3 hours of self-study. Read here everything you can expect from an online language course.

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.

Dutch for native speakers of German
There are separate groups for German native speakers. Because German and Dutch are so similar, the material can be covered faster.

The course material is compulsory and must be purchased by the student. The book is available at our Support Office during opening hours, check here if and when the desk is open. The book can also be purchased as an e-book or regular book at your local bookstore, or online bookstores such as Coutinho and Bol.com. When purchasing a regular book online, pay attention to the delivery time to ensure that you receive the book on time. 

Along with this book you will receive an individual code for a website offering complementary exercises, spoken text fragments, movies and songs. This code is linked to your e-mail address. You will need access to the website to be able to adequately participate in the course. If you purchase a book from someone else, you will not be able to use his or her personal code and thus will not have access to the website. However, the codes can be bought separately via the publisher Coutinho.
