Course information

The Dutch Writing Skills (NT2) course is for people who have an excellent command of Dutch but who experience difficulty in writing formal texts. To take part in this course, your present level of Dutch proficiency must be at least level B2 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR).


During the course you will learn to recognise and avoid common stumbling blocks in the area of grammar, spelling and style. You also learn how to organise a text at sentence and paragraph level and how to vary your vocabulary and language use. During the lessons you will practice writing various types of text, such as emails, letters and persuasive texts.


The course concludes with a written assignment. The result of this assignment determines the level stated on your certificate.


At this level, UvA Talen also offers the courses Dutch Business Writing and Dutch Fluency Skills at an equivalent level.

If you successfully complete this course, you will receive a certificate.
