The Introduction course (A0) teaches au pairs more about the Dutch language and culture by exploring all sorts of themes and subjects. Besides learning to speak Dutch, they can learn something about Dutch practices and customs. They meet each other and share experience. They will learn Dutch by playing various games, listening to stories and completing texts.
Each lesson deals with a grammatical subject alternated with plenty of games related to the theme of that lesson.
The course consists of 8 lessons of 2 hours in the morning (9.30-11.30 AM) or in the evening (7.15 – 9.15 PM).
Every lesson there will be homework. This homework is partly in the workbook and partly online on the e-learningsite. This takes the student about 2,5 hours time. The total study load is around 5 hours per week.
At the end of the course all students do an exam. They all receive a certificate of participation and an exam result.
Personal attention for the au pairs is important. The maximum number of participants is therefore 8.
The textbook ‘Kom even binnen’ is provided for the first lesson.
