What will I learn?
Continuing from Dutch for Beginners II, this course follows up with more complex sentences and all verb tenses. You will become familiar with having discussions, talking about general topics and expressing your opinion about these topics. In class we also discuss your daily encounters and challenges with Dutch and integrate news items so you can talk to colleagues and friends about current affairs.
Themes discussed will partly depend on your own input into the course. Abstract themes from the method that may be discussed include:
I – work, leisure time and studying, society and interactions with others, expressing various emotions, talking about the weather and geography
II – communication, news and media, your immediate environment, politics
III – art and literature, the environment and pollution, sport and energy
Each class has a maximum of 8 participants, which ensures you get the most out of it. The teacher provides personal feedback, you get a lot of time to speak and simultaneously you learn from classmates who have other questions and experiences.
We offer this course in the evenings. The lessons start after 17:00 and alternate the start time every week: one week you have class at 17:15 and the other week at 19:30.
On-line or off-line?
Our courses can be offered either on-line or in the classroom/hybrid class. During the application process you can give your preference. After applying we set up an intake meeting. During the intake meeting we discuss your goals and expectation for the course and we assess your level. If you have any questions, we can also answer them in that conversation.
