Would you like to improve your Dutch language skills but don't you have time to do this during the academic year? Do not hesitate and register for our summer course Dutch! During this more intensive course for absolute beginners, you can complete one target level in two weeks instead of 10 weeks. If you are an international student and have not taken this course (or another Dutch A1 course at the LTC) before, you can now take the course for a discounted rate of €35,- (including e-book).

This online course consists of ten daily sessions of 3 hours each. The final exam takes place after the course on a predetermined date (see schedule below). One course level will have been covered by the end of this course.

Are you a German native speaker?

For German native speakers we offer a course that includes two levels (A1+A2.1) since it is much easier for German native speakers to learn Dutch. Please note that this course will not be taught from German. Should another language be necessary for explaining, this will be English. This course is for German natives only and can be found using the following link. If you have questions regarding your participation in this course, feel free to contact us via ltc@eur.nl
