Can you already use the past perfect, but are not sure about the simple past yet? Would you like to learn how to make longer sentences? Basically, would you like to further develop your Dutch language skills?

Then the Dutch Language course Level 3 is a suitable course for you. In this course, our trainers teach you everything about healthcare, both internally and externally, and about studying and working in the Netherlands. The end level of the Dutch Language course Level 3 is A2.

Dutch is a Germanic language that is spoken by approximately 23 million people world-wide. Most of these live in the Netherlands and in Belgium, but Dutch is also spoken in Surinam and in the Dutch Antilles.

This course covers the following activities:

  • speaking fluently
  • dialogue
  • pronunciation
  • grammar exercises
  • letter writing

Dutch language level 3 is designed for beginners who already have some knowledge of Dutch and gives you the opportunity to learn the basics of Dutch fast and well. You are required to do a placement test developed by Babel. This 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. In case you have already completed the placement test we kindly ask for your patience, the Babel Service Desk will review your application within a few days.
