The focus of course To Perfection (B2>C1) is on improving vocabulary, accent and intonation and spelling and sentence structure. You will be working towards level C1. By means of playing games, listening to stories and completing and writing texts, vocabulary is extended and the participants will learn to speak and write better Dutch. The lessons will cover news topics (newspapers), art and culture and literature.
The course consists in total of 28 lessons of 2,25 hours each morning (9.30- 11.45 AM) or evening (7.15-9.30 PM). The course has part 1 of 14 lessons and part 2 of 14 lessons. The lessons are once a week.
In the first part of the course To Perfection (B2>C1) you will:
- expand your vocabulary
- talk about current affairs in Dutch
- improve your Dutch writing skills.
We will cover Chapters 1-4 of the lesson book Nederlands naar perfectie. (In order to reach level C1, you should also take part 2 of this course.)
In the second part of the course To Perfection (B2 > C1) you talk about current topics, expand your vocabulary and improve your writing skills in Dutch.
Chapter 5 – 7 of the lesson book Nederlands naar Perfectie will be covered. Only after following part 2, you will have level C1.
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 6 hours time. The total study load is 8,5 hours per week.
It’s possible to buy an extra grammar module for the higher levels. The online grammar module contains the information of the Taalthuis grammar book combined with a lot of exercises to put the knowledge into practice. Taalthuis also uses self-developed language games. These games and the grammar module can be purchased at the checkout while registering.
At the end of the course, all students do an exam both written and oral. They receive a certificate of participation (75% presence needed) ann an exam result.
Personal attention for the students is important. The maximum number of participants is therefore 8.
