Dutch is the language of instruction right from the start of the first lesson. The language courses concentrate on communication, and that means that the Dutch learnt is actively practised during class!

Themes that will be dealt with include introducing yourself, ordering something in a café or restaurant, making an appointment, making suggestions, buying something at the market, asking the way and visiting the doctor or bike shop. This Dutch beginners' course at level 0 > A1 is intended for participants who speak little or no Dutch.

Study load
This course consists of 12 lessons. A lesson in an online course takes 1.5 hours, during an in person course a lesson takes 2 hours. In addition, you should count on a total of about 30 hours of self-study.

Advice
If you want to register for a course at this level and you have not followed a course with the Language Centre before, you must visit the office hour. You can only register for this course if you have been given the matching advice. UG students, external students and UG staff can register directly for a beginners' course without having to receive an advice first.
