Distance learning: A2 to B1 Intermediate

Distance learning has 90-minute video conference lessons supported by a digital platform. It is an interactive way to learn Dutch. The groups will not exceed four people to ensure that everyone has a good learning experience. The lessons mainly consist of practicing the speaking skills, but in the course you naturally develop all your language skills (listening, reading, writing and speaking). This way of studying is really successful and a great alternative to traditional classroom lessons.

This course

In the A2-B1 Intermediate course you will start to understand, speak and read Dutch on a more independent level.

In 21 different lessons you will learn about the Dutch Royal family but also about how to find suitable accommodation. You will also learn how to conduct a good discussion and how to express your opinion and ideas well. The lessons are filled with information about every aspect of Dutch society and with many new words and grammar explanations; in short, with a wealth of knowledge and skills that you need to function well in the Netherlands.

During the lessons you will receive practical instructions and you will work in small groups, in pairs or with your teacher on assignments and your homework. You develop your speaking, reading, writing and listening skills up to B1-Intermediate level.
