Dutch Absolute Beginners Summer Course

What you want

Would you like to begin learning Dutch but don't have the time to complete an 11-week course? Then register today for our 2-week summer course!

Absolute 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.

What you can expect

The course provides 40 contact hours throughout 2 weeks in July. During this time, we focus on offering a dynamic and student-focused learning environment. These two extensive weeks will also allow the learner to immerse themselves with not only the language but also the Dutch culture.

This is achieved by providing the following elements in our courses.

  • vocabulary
  • listening;
  • grammar;
  • speaking;
  • reading & comprehension;
  • In-class activities

At an A1 level you can:

  • Understand and use familiar everyday expressions and very basic phrases in Dutch.
  • Introduce yourself and others and can ask and answer questions about personal details such as: where you live, people you know and things you have.
  • Interact in a simple way provided the other person talks slowly and clearly and is prepared to help.

What you get

After successful completion of the course, you can breakthrough to your next language level with a working vocabulary and solid grammar foundation. And to top it off, you get an A1 language proficiency certificate defined by the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR).
