Distance Learning: A1 to A2
Distance learning has video conference classes of 90 minutes supported by a digital platform for the classroom. It is an interactive way of learning Dutch. The groups will not be larger than four people to make sure that everybody gets a good learning experience. The classes are full of conversation and instruction and having a digital communication platform really helps to improve your writing and accelerates your learning. This way of studying is really successful and a great alternative to traditional classroom lessons.
The book is specifically designed for self-study because it includes translations of all the words on A0-A1 and A1-A2 level in 26 languages. Please take a look at the material here. This material also includes grammar points. And many different ways of practicing and testing the language you have just learned.
In the A1-A2 course you will learn how to understand, speak and read Dutch on an experienced beginner level. The A2 level is the same level as the Dutch Integration exam.
You will learn many things about Dutch society and all the practical ways to communicate in it. Situations like looking for work, socializing, visiting the hospital and contacting the local government. Topics like Dutch history, the school system, geography and many other things about Dutch culture and society.
During your classes, you will get practical instructions and you will work in small groups, in pairs or with your teacher on assignments and your homework. You will develop your speaking, reading, writing and listening until A2 level.
Our teachers are always experienced and trained professionals. They understand your individual learning needs and style and they motivate and guide you in the learning process.
