Learning goals

This Upper-Intermediate Dutch (B2) course is aimed to those who wish to achieve level B2 in a short period of time. You can start with level B1. You will need to test your level. This can be done through our online placement test.

After completing the course you will be able to…

  • understand the main idea of complex texts, both with concrete and abstract subjects, including technical discourse in the participant’s own professional field. Participants can react fluently and spontaneously, in such a way that a normal exchange is possible with native speakers of Dutch, without any strain on either side.
  • produce a clear, detailed text on a wide range of subjects, and they can give their opinion on a topical issue and give advantages as well as disadvantages of different options.
