Dutch language courses

We offer a wide range of courses in Dutch as a Foreign Language. There are general skills courses at six levels, ranging from beginner to advanced. In addition, there are three special skills courses at expert level as well as preparatory course for the Staatsexamen Nederlands als Tweede Taal Part I and II.


In Dutch beginner to advanced you will systematically expand your knowledge of the Dutch vocabulary and grammar. A course book serves as a basis for the course and as a springboard for a wide variety of activities: role plays, presentations, as well as audio-based and video-based activities. Your instructor will emphasize speaking and listening throughout the course. Naturally due attention will be paid to reading and writing skills.


Every course concludes with a final test. If you pass the final test, UvA Talen will issue you a certificate and you can continue to the next level.
