About the course
In this conversation course, you will practice different types of spoken communication, broaden your vocabulary, and work on your pronunciation. You will receive feedback from both your teacher and your classmates so that you know which areas you need to work on and how you can achieve this.
In the first lesson, the teacher will ask all students to share their learning goals, so that the course programme can be adapted to suit all students’ needs. In every lesson, you will discuss current affairs and listen to (or give) presentations.
By the end of the course, you will have
- more self-confidence when speaking Dutch
- an expanded vocabulary
- improved your pronunciation
In this course, you will work with your fellow students on a variety of speaking activities. For example, you might describe personal experiences and events, or look at how to interact during discussions and meetings. There is also space to focus on more abstract topics related to current affairs, cultural differences, and society and politics.
This course consists of 9 classes of 1.5 hours at Babel’s teaching centre in Utrecht. In addition to this, you can expect to do 1-2 hours per class of preparation and self study.
