Choose your Course
Nt2 Beginners (intensive course)
In this course, you will rapidly acquire a good foundation of everyday Dutch. You do this by using texts from the Delft method, which you study online step by step. Grammar is offered implicitly through these texts, so you develop a feeling for the language rather than an explicit knowledge of its rules. What you learn, you apply in countless conversations in Dutch.
Dutch I for Expats
This is a course for highly educated people who work in an English-speaking environment but want to learn Dutch to manage in everyday life. In this course, you will learn basic Dutch vocabulary and grammar and be trained in the skills of reading, listening, speaking, and writing for practical situations. During the lessons the emphasis is on speaking skills in the form of dialogues and role plays.
Nt2 Intermediate (intensive course)
In this intensive course, you will rapidly build your knowledge of Dutch. You expand your vocabulary to over 4,500 words and learn all kinds of idiomatic expressions. You do this, as in the Nt2 Beginners course, using texts from the Delft method, which you study online step by step. Grammar is implicitly offered through these texts, further developing your sense of language. You will apply what you have learned in numerous conversations in Dutch.
Dutch I for International Students
In this course you will learn basic Dutch vocabulary and grammar and be trained in the skills of reading, listening, speaking, and writing for practical situations. During the lessons the emphasis is on speaking skills in the form of dialogues and role plays.
Spanish for beginners
In this intensive course, you will learn the basics of Spanish. All skills (listening, reading, speaking, and writing) are covered, but the course focuses mainly on interaction. Characteristic of the course is the large number of online homework assignments and practical classes where you, together with other students, put into practice what you have learned. You will have to work hard independently but will soon be able to communicate at an elementary level in Spanish.
