Dutch (NT2) - Intensive Course for the Dutch State Exam
Our intensive course for the Dutch State Exam consists of three consecutive courses in one year: a course for beginners, intermediate level students, and advanced level students. These courses prepare you for the Dutch State Exam, program II within a year. We also offer supplementary modules and courses for extra help.
NT2: Beginners (intensive Course)
This course allows you to rapidly acquire a solid basis of everyday Dutch based on texts from the Delft method that you will go through step-by-step. Grammar is also explained based on these texts. This allows you to develop a feel for the language instead of only a knowledge of the grammar rules.
These courses are intended for highly educated expats and international students who speak little or no Dutch.
Dutch (NT2) as a Second Language
You can choose from a wide range of courses. The "intensive program" trains you to reach the level of the Dutch State Exam NT2, within a year. we offer the in-depth courses "after the state exam" to perfect your Dutch or you can learn how to survive day-to-day through our "Dutch for Expats" courses.
NT2: Upper-Intermediate Dutch
During this course, you work from the B1 level to the B2 level. Using the book Nederlands op Niveau, you will work with texts, listening fragments, and do vocabulary and grammar exercises.
