An average day consists of a lecture by a field expert and a Dutch language class, in which the participants will analyse various recordings and read and discuss articles.
The course is suitable for interpreters and translators who have reached C1 level (CEFR). You are required to do a placement test
developed by Babel. The placement test consists of two parts: multiple choice and writing. A teacher will assess your language skills. On the basis of your test result you will get an advice about which course is suitable for you. Please note that it can take up to 5 working days until your language level is assessed.
