Can you already manage yourself in Dutch in everyday situations, but do you want to master the language even better? In this Dutch course from the University of Groningen Language Centre, we start at the level between A2 and B1. 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/B1. During the course, we work towards level 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.

This course is openly accessible to UG staff and students as well as external parties. International students, PhDs' and postdocs of the University of Groningen are being offered these Dutch courses at the Language Centre by the Board of the University of Groningen. Read everything about these regulations and see if it applies to you here.

What is the study load of the course?

This is an intensive two-week course. You will have lessons on four days each week. You should expect to spend a total of 30 hours on independent study in order to stay on track with this 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 B1>B1/B2 intensive!
