For somebody who has just arrived in the Netherlands it’s nice if, besides learning to speak some Dutch, they can learn something about Dutch practices and customs. The basic beginners course (A0>A1) teaches non-Dutch speakers more about the Dutch language and culture by exploring all sorts of themes and subjects. The basic beginners course is challenging and fun. You will learn Dutch by playing various games, listening to stories and completing texts.
The basic beginners course consists of 13 sessions: 12 lessons in the evening (19.00-21.30) or in the morning (09.00- 11.30) and a final exam.
Every lesson there will be homework. This homework is partly in the workbook and partly online on the e-learningsite. 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. They all receive a certificate of participation and an exam result.
