Nederlands / Dutch low intermediate
At the start of the course you cannot speak any Dutch. Or you can say and understand only a few words.
The course focuses on oral communication skills. You ‘ll be taught the basics of Dutch up to the level halfway between A1 and A2 (elementary level).
In order to take this course you must have an active attitude in the classroom: you can’t sit still and be quiet. You must also have an active attitude at home: you have to learn the most common words yourself. In the lessons the teacher will tell you about good internet sites to learn words, simple sentences and grammar.
Learning by doing
In the very first lesson you will be invited to speak Dutch immediately. English will be spoken as little as possible. You, your fellow students, and all the objects surrounding you in the classroom will be teaching material: you learn to talk about what you see around you and what you can do in the classroom, in the building or nearby places (i.e. in the park, in the shops).
Teaching material will be handed out during the lessons. The total costs of this written material will be € 20, to be paid in the first lesson.
