About the course

This course allows you to enter into conversation with native Dutch speakers with more self-confidence. During the course, we look at subjects such as studying, working, living together, housing situations, politics and art.

In this course you work towards language level B1. The course is suitable if you have completed our Beginners course Dutch (A2) or if you have achieved A2 level through other means. If you have not completed our A2 course, it is important that you take our free placement test. That way we can make sure you are entering at the right level. Furthermore, our courses are aimed at college and university graduates, so the learning pace is relatively fast. Finally, we use English as a supporting language. So it is important that you understand English and speak enough to ask questions.
