Nederlands beginners I en II Delftse Methode

What will I learn in this course that is based on Delftse methode?

During this course using Delftse methode you are given all the tools to have fluent basic conversations in Dutch with confidence. In each course you cover 21 chapters, which can be roughly divided into the following topics:
Beginners I – introducing yourself and meeting others, setting up appointments, doing groceries, discuss about food, get a package from your neighbour, share stories from your holiday or weekend, housing, transportation, finances and generally Dutch society.
Beginners II – relationships and status, Dutch geography, police and stolen goods, Holidays, four biggest cities of the Netherlands, your hobbies,  worklife, health and lifestyle choices, tourism in the Netherlands, various governmental institutes, history of the Netherlands, schoolsystem, municipality, climate crisis and Dutch political system,

What makes Delftse methode special?

It is a method based on conversation classes talking in Dutch from the start. In class you solely use words and sentences used in the chapters you dealt with. Preparation is essential. Since you prepare the text thoroughly before coming to class, you are able to follow and participate at all times. Because the 2000 most frequently used words of the Dutch language are used in the texts, you really learn the essentials first. Even if you don’t speak English, because all the vocabulary lists are translated into 26 languages. Moreover, you evaluate on your learning process frequently with various types of tests, helping you identify your strengths and what needs more attention. Our teachers are trained to teach this method.
