About the Advanced Dutch C1+ course

Nederlandse taal leren

The higher your level of Dutch, the more important it is to get the subtle details of the language right. And so this course uses current topics and issues to focus on language in more complex situations, where emotions, well-grounded opinions and deeper knowledge of the culture all play a role.

The Netherlands is well known to many people as one of the most liberal countries in the Western world, but in reality the picture is a lot more complicated when it comes to, say, people’s beliefs on ethical and moral questions.

During the course, numerous cultural and social subjects will be explained and discussed, such as how to deal with cultural differences and a variety of socio-economic issues.
