The focus of the To Perfection (B2>C1) course is 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, your vocabulary is extended and you will learn to speak and write better Dutch. The lessons will cover news topics (newspapers), art and culture and literature.
Both parts of the course consist of 28 lessons of 2 hours and 15 minutes each, either in the 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. (To reach level C1, you should also take part 2 of this course.)
You can buy the book in your local bookstore or at Coutinho.nl
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 reach level C1.
Every lesson there will be homework. This will cost you 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 (A1-A2) contains information from the Taalthuis grammar book combined with many exercises to put your knowledge into practice. The grammar module can be purchased at the checkout while registering.
At the end of the course, all students do an exam which has a written and an oral component. You receive a certificate of participation (80% presence needed) and an exam result.
We value personal attention. The maximum number of participants in a group is therefore 8.
