Online Dutch A1 > A2

The Online Dutch 0 > A1 course is a fully online course in basic Dutch which takes participants from CEFR level A1 to A2: you speak no Dutch or only very little (for example, participants who followed the Introduction to Dutch course on FutureLearn). The course is aimed at everyone who wants to learn to speak, write, read and understand Dutch.

This course is not reimbursed by DUO. This course is not paid for by the University of Groningen. There are special Dutch group courses for University of Groningen Bachelor’s, Master’s and PhD students.

The online Dutch course is based on Nederlands in gang, a beginner’s textbook for Dutch as a second language. It is linked to an extensive website for highly educated non-native speakers. In this Online Dutch course, you will work through chapters 9 to 18 of Nederlands in gang.

Determine your level
Considering that it is important that you register for the right course, we recommend that you easily determine your Dutch language level yourself. You can do this by taking one of the three following tests. In this way, you will know for sure that you are starting your Online Dutch course at the right level!

  • Placement Test
    Determine the starting level of a language training online and in your own time with the placement test!

    The DIALANG test is a language test developed by multiple European universities. The test does not replace advice given after the office hour, however; it is merely for your own reference. The test indication is described in terms of the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR). This is a reference framework developed by the Council of Europe that provides a basis for comparing language proficiency levels and interpreting test scores.

  • Self-evaluate your language skills tool
    The 'Self-evaluate your language skills' tool helps you to assess your level of proficiency according to six reference levels described in the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR).
