About the course

Nederlands voor Vergevorderden

If you are enrolled in this course, you already master the basics of the Dutch language. You will raise your language proficiency to the next level and will further improve your speaking and writing skills.

You will practise your writing using a variety of written tasks and you will practise your speaking by means of discussions, pair work and brief presentations. During the course, the trainer will give you regular feedback on your speaking and writing tasks and on your presentation (if you have given one).

Topics of the assignments will be drawn from current affairs and can be provided by the teacher, but there is also room for your own contributions. There will be a direct link to your personal situation, so you can immediately put your newly acquired skills into practice.

In addition to the emphasis on speaking and writing, you will also expand your knowledge of Dutch grammar.
