Now at UvA Talen: Learn Dutch at the weekend

You can now learn Dutch at the weekend at UvA Talen. The courses have been added to our programme following the many enquiries we have received about weekend Dutch lessons. Perfect for expats and international students who want to learn Dutch alongside their job or studies!

Beginners and intermediate courses

The weekend courses are offered at four levels, Dutch Beginners 1 and 2, and Dutch Intermediate 1 and 2. Dutch Beginners 1 covers the basics of Dutch: the perfect course if you want to use Dutch in your daily life. Dutch Beginners 2 is suitable for you if you already have some knowledge of Dutch. After completing this course, you will be able to introduce yourself and your family and understand menus, brochures and recipes. If you already know the basics but want to become more proficient at the language, Dutch Intermediate 1 or Dutch Intermediate 2 is the right course for you.

Saturday morning Dutch lessons

All the weekend courses are on Saturday mornings. This gives you enough time to have coffee (and practise your Dutch) with your fellow students, do your weekly shopping (in Dutch) and to meet up with (Dutch-speaking) friends. The beginners courses consist of 10 weekly lessons, each lasting 2.5 hours. The intermediate courses consist of 13 lessons, each lasting 3 hours.

More information

The weekend courses start twice a year: in March and August. You can find more information about the courses on the course pages. If you have other questions, please contact our course coordinators or send us a message via Facebook.
