Are you a beginner and would like to improve your Dutch to level A2? Then this Dutch Language for Beginners is the right course for you. You will develop your vocabulary on a number of subjects such as shopping, travel, restaurants, study and work. Our trainers will help you to carry out practical tasks for example making an appointment in Dutch, having a simple telephone conversation and giving the right reactions. We also think grammatically correct writing and speaking is very important. The end level of Dutch Language for Beginners 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 Netherlands Antilles. You will start at beginners’ level and aim to reach level A2. This course combines the courses Dutch level 1, 2 and 3 and covers the four skills of listening, reading, writing and speaking. During the course you will also become familiar with Dutch customs and manners.

Course activities include:

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

The course is suitable for beginners, there is no previous knowledge of Dutch required. Our Dutch courses are predominantly taught in Dutch; however, English will be used as a supporting language. A good command of English is therefore a prerequisite.
