Dutch Beginners 1+2

Course information

The course Dutch Beginners 1+2 is for anyone who does not speak any Dutch yet and wants to learn in a short time. During this course, we will get your Dutch language skills to level A2 in ten weeks.

That level means you will, for example, be able to have a short telephone conversation in Dutch, introduce yourself and your family, and understand menus, brochures and recipes. As well as speaking and reading, Dutch Beginners 1+2 also covers writing skills, including the composition of personal letters and short reviews.

On completion of this course, you will be able to actively use about 800 to 1,000 words and have passive knowledge of around 2,000 words. You will also be able to apply the basic rules of Dutch grammar, including the present and past tenses, separable verbs and pronouns.

Two other options are offered: either an intensive daytime course lasting four weeks, or a less intensive course taking place in the evening. In the latter case, the course is split up into Dutch Beginners 1 and Dutch Beginners 2.

As some of the explanation is given in English, a basic knowledge of English is required to take this course.

If you successfully complete this course, you will receive a certificate showing the level you have attained and you will be able to continue to Dutch Intermediate 1.
