UvA Talen Summer Courses

Join one of our summer daytime courses to learn a new language in a fast and fun way! The summer courses at UvA Talen comprise nine to twenty lessons that take place three or five times a week.
 
Maybe you're looking to master the basics of Spanish, French or Italian before your holiday? Improve your English or Dutch for a boost in your workplace or studies? Or start learning a fascinating language you’ve wanted to learn for a long time, such as Russian, Chinese or Arabic? Then this is your chance! This summer, UvA Talen is offering intensive group courses in 12 different languages.

Spanish, Italian, French, German, Portuguese and Swedish

All our Spanish, Italian, French, German, Portuguese and Swedish summer courses consist of nine three-hour lessons spread over three weeks. This means you receive two extra hours of lessons compared to the regular evening courses for the same price. During these intensive courses your language proficiency will rise one level on the scale of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages.

Arabic, Russian, Chinese and Japanese

The courses in Arabic, Russian, Chinese and Japanese also last for three weeks but consist of ten two-and-a-half hour lessons. This gives you plenty of time after each lesson to do your homework and to review what you have learnt. Time that you are sure to need!

Dutch and English

UvA Talen offers intensive daytime courses in Dutch and English all year round. During the summer, the courses follow the successful formula used during the rest of the year: four weeks of five lessons a week from Monday to Friday. During these intensive courses your language proficiency will rise at least two levels on the scale of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages.
