Do you already have a good general level of Dutch but do you find speaking challenging? Do you feel uncertain about participating in conversations? In this Dutch Conversation course, we focus on improving your spoken skills.

About the course

In this Dutch 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.

In this course you will work on your spoken Dutch skills at level B2. You can follow this course if you have completed our Upper-Intermediate Dutch (B2) course or if you have attained B2 level in some other way. Would you like to know your current language level?
