Dutch Beginners 4 course

What you want

Beginners 4 is the ideal course for those who want to be self-reliant in everyday life. It does not matter whether you need the language professionally, for your personal development or for your civic integration exam.

What you can expect

The course consists of 22 contact hours in 11 weeks. During the course we offer a dynamic and student-oriented learning environment. In those 11 weeks we do not only pay a lot of attention to the Dutch language, but also to the culture.

How do we do that?

We achieve this by paying attention to:

  • vocabulary;
  • listening;
  • speaking;
  • reading and text comprehension;
  • group activities;
  • grammar.

If you have successfully completed the Beginners 4 course, you can:

  • Explain how and why you do the things you do, and where and when;
  • Have discussions and give arguments;
  • Say what you are doing and ask for or give advice.


Currently, level A2 of the Common European Framework of Reference is required for the linguistic part of the civic integration examination. That will probably change: depending on the capabilities of the person integrating, that level will be raised or lowered. The new scheme will probably start in 2020. PLEASE NOTE: even in the current situation a language proficiency level A2 is not sufficient in itself to be able to take the full integration exam.

And after that?

If you have successfully completed the course, you can proceed to the next level, Advanced 1, which trains up to level A2 + of the Common European Framework of Reference.
