Dutch II for Expats

This course is a continuation of Dutch I for Expats and provides a more expanded basic knowledge of the Dutch language. You will be trained to go from level A1 to level A2 of the Common European Framework of Reference. This is also an evening course similar to Dutch I for Expats intended for Tilburg University staff and other interested parties with a university degree.

During the lessons, many dialogues and role plays are used. You can prepare and review the lessons using the online material. You will also receive weekly writing exercises that you must rewrite yourself based on feedback from your instructor. The cultural subjects dealt with are primarily geared toward practical information such as social talk, giving your opinion, asking and giving directions, and giving advice.
