For those of you who wish to master the basics of Dutch as quickly as possible, UvA Talen has put together an intensive introduction course. This four-week course consists of twenty 2.5-hour lessons and 5 to 6 hours of self-study per day. This combination of daily lessons and self-study will enable you to speak and understand rudimentary Dutch in only one month.
This intensive course is intended for absolute beginners. During the course, you will learn to communicate in Dutch in everyday situations. You will practise your newly acquired knowledge of the Dutch language in near-realistic situations, such as going shopping, making a telephone call, asking directions and visiting the doctor. Aside from speaking skills, attention is also paid to reading and writing skills.
After taking this course, you will have an active command of approximately 800 to 1,000 words as well as a passive command of approximately 2,000 words. You will also be able to apply the basic grammar rules. All four basic skills are practised using excerpts from Dutch texts, grammar exercises and writing assignments. This four-week intensive course will enable you to speak and understand rudimentary Dutch in only one month.
We also organise this course as two non-intensive evening courses: Dutch Beginners I and Dutch Beginners II.
