The beginners plus course (A0>A2) has been specially developed for students from Germany and South Africa and students who already have some knowledge of the Dutch language. If possible we make special groups only with au pairs and international students. The beginners plus course is a of a higher level than the basic beginners course.
The beginners plus course teaches non-Dutch speakers more about the Dutch language and culture by exploring all sorts of themes and subjects. You will learn Dutch by playing various games, listening to stories and completing texts.
A favourite theme is food in the Netherlands, but national holidays, the provinces – with their specific characteristics – and the seasons will also be covered.
The course consists of 13 lessons of 2 hours and 15 minutes each in the morning (9.30-11.45 AM) or in the evening (7.15 – 9.30 PM).
Every lesson there will be homework. This will cost the student about 5 hours’ time. The total study load is 7,5 hours per week.
At the end of the course all students do an exam both written and oral. They all receive a certificate of participation (80% presence needed) and an exam result.
Personal attention for the students is important. The maximum number of participants is therefore 8.
The textbook ‘Kom gauw binnen’ and the grammarbook ‘Het Fundament’ are provided for the first lesson.
