Do you think this is easy? Have you ever tried to explain why after a quarter past twelve, the Dutch are suddenly talking about ten to half past twelve?!

Begin bij het begin...

Beginners Dutch is an ideal course for those wishing to establish a solid foundation in Dutch. Whether it's for your career, personal development or inburgering, a solid foundation is essential for learning any new language.

This course starts from the beginning and will set you successfully on your way to speaking Dutch!

IMPORTANT to know before booking this course...

Lessons are taught in Dutch! That's right - even our Beginners 1 course. Our teachers are very experienced in teaching foreign languages to beginners, so they will use simple instructions to help you become familiar with the language.

Our aim is to immerse you in the language so that you feel comfortable around it. You will slowly build an understanding of everything you hear, and it will encourage you to try using the language yourself.

You are not expected to understand every word at the start, but as the teacher repeats certain phrases and uses body language and visual clues, you will start acquiring the language at a lot faster rate than if we taught it in English.

If you need your teacher to explain something in your own language / in English, then you are very welcome to ask them - try asking them in Dutch!

Lessons online: due to restrictions, we currently offer courses online. Lessons will be held via Zoom with an average of 6-8 students.

Lessons at CBE: we have spaced our classrooms in accordance with RIVM regulations and you'll find plenty of hand sanitiser in every room! When regulations permit, we aim to move some groups back on-site.

We wish to provide a safe and comfortable place for you to learn so we have limited our onsite courses to 4-6 students maximum.

onderwerpen;

  • Jezelf voorstellen, vragen stellen en beantwoorden over jezelf en anderen: waar woon je, hoe heet je, hoe laat is het;

En daarna?

Als je de cursus met goed gevolg hebt afgerond, kan je door naar het volgende niveau, Beginners 2. Dat leidt op tot niveau A1 van het Common European Framework of Reference.
