Summer courses: learn a new language this summer!
This summer, UvA Talen is offering intensive summer courses in 12 different languages. 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!
A summer course at UvA Talen takes two, three or four weeks, depending on the language you want to learn. All of the courses allow you to learn a new language in a fast and fun way while keeping enough time for lazing in the summer sun.
Dutch and English summer courses
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: five lessons a week from Monday to Friday. During these intensive courses your language proficiency will rise up to two levels on the scale of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages.
Spanish, Italian, French, German, Portuguese and Swedish summer courses
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 up to one level on the scale of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages.
Arabic, Russian, Chinese and Japanese summer courses
The courses in Arabic, Russian, Chinese and Japanese also take place three times a week, 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!
120 euro discount if you take more than one summer course
All summer courses are coordinated so that you can easily take two courses consecutively. If you enrol for more than one summer course, you receive a discount of €120 on the second summer course.*
