Are you looking to improve your Dutch to the level that is required for a senior position in a Dutch company, or would you like to enrol in an academic course? Our Dutch Language Level 6 course will brush up your Dutch to a high level. In a small class of up to 16 students with a qualified trainer you will advance in your learning quickly and improve your speaking, writing and comprehension. At the end of the course you will have reached level B2+. 

This advanced course is ideal for learners who have passed the NT2 State Exam programme II but would like to express themselves more fluently, using the right vocabulary and tone. Maybe peoples around you tell you that the way you say things is correct, but that they would say it in a different way. In a small group you will work on improving your Dutch in order to feel more confident with using the language. This course helps you to use Dutch in a way that native speakers do. 

The course will help you:

  • perfect your pronunciation;
  • develop your presenting skills;
  • build advanced vocabulary;
  • feel more confident in group discussions;
  • improve your grammar;
  • develop your writing skills.

The Babel institute is situated in a monumental building in the centre of Utrecht. We encourage you to explore this beautiful part of the Netherlands in your free time and practise your newly acquired skills with Dutch locals.

This course will be offered in a virtual classroom setting. Check the course description for more information.
