Can you already manage yourself in Dutch in everyday situations, but do you want to master the language even better? In this Dutch course at the University of Groningen Language Centre, we start at level A2. You will continue to learn to use the language in more complex situations. This way, you will be challenged to speak even better Dutch! 

At the Language Centre, you will learn Dutch at a fast pace with the help of teaching methods we developed ourselves. Our language courses focus on speaking and understanding the Dutch language. This way, you will quickly start to feel more or less at home with the language, and you naturally expand your knowledge of grammar and vocabulary.

Who is this course for?

This course is intended for participants with a pre-intermediate level of Dutch at CEFR level A2. During the course, we work towards level A2/B1. The course is taught in Dutch as much as possible, with explanations provided in English when necessary. It is therefore important that you have a good command of English in order to participate in the course.

What will you learn in this course?

The course comprises 12 lessons. Each lesson lasts two hours in a course on location, and 1.5 hours in an online course. During the course, you will learn, among other things:

  • To use prepositions, such as ‘on’, ‘to’, and ‘in’
  • To use irregular verbs
  • To connect sentences with linking words
  • Pronunciation: word accents, sentence accents, and connected speech
How many hours of independent study are required?

You should expect to spend a total of 30 hours on independent study in order to stay on track with the course. This involves, for example, reading texts, learning vocabulary, and completing grammar and writing assignments.

What will you be able to do after the course?
  • Read a Dutch newspaper, magazine, or news website 
  • Participate in conversations with friends and acquaintances 
  • Write an email or short text 

After successfully completing this course, you will be ready for the follow-up course Dutch A2/B1>B1.
