NT2: Advanced (B2+) (intensive course)

This course offers a good preparation for a university education or a position at an academic level. With the help of the book Nederlands naar Perfectie, you will work with texts, listening fragments, and vocabulary and grammar exercises. Attention is also paid to pronunciation and listening comprehension. The subjects, the practice material, and the assignments in this course are of an academic nature.

In this course, you strengthen your B2-level.  You will therefore also be working on various academic language and study skills, such as presenting, summarizing, discussing, and writing a position paper.

This course is suitable for participants who have passed the upper-intermediate course, but want to reach a higher language level in order to be better prepared for the NT2-II State Exam. You can then take the NT2-II State Exam at the end of this course. This course is also suitable for participants who have passed their NT2-II state exam, but want to take their language skills to a higher level and take the step towards C1.
