Summer course Dutch

Registration deadline is 21 July
Nederlands - Language & Training Centre

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. 

What will you learn?

This online course consists of ten daily sessions of 3 hours each. During this course you will learn the basics of the Dutch language, with emphasis on reading, speaking, listening and writing skills in an everyday context. Topics that are covered include:

  • pronunciation;
  • presenting yourself;
  • greetings and farewells;
  • making an appointment;
  • family;
  • café, market, restaurant and shop;
  • grammar;
  • vocabulary;
  • the Dutch culture.

By the end of the course, you will have a small vocabulary to be able to communicate in common and everyday situations. The final level of the course is A1 according to the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR).

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.
