This course does not have a final exam

A Dutch Speaking Skills course consists of ten weekly sessions of 2 hours each. There will be no final exam, but throughout the course the teacher will provide you with extensive feedback on your speaking skills.

What will you learn?

After completing the B2 course you’ll be able to fully participate in conversation, but you will still need to work on improving your accuracy and on expanding your vocabulary. During this Speaking Skills course you will mainly focus on participating in discussions on topics of interest, interesting texts and books. Each lesson provides new expressions and proverbs to be learned as well as more discussion practice. You will also learn to give a presentation in Dutch.
