What is the difference between the beginners basic course and the beginners plus course?

The beginners plus course is especially developed for students with some knowlegde of the Dutch language and students from Germany and South Africa. The course is more difficult  and consists of more grammar than the Beginners Basic course.

What is the difference between the courses for au pairs and the other courses?

The difference between the regular Basic courses and the Basic courses for au pairs and students is the composition of the groups. The students and au pairs are all young. Au pairs stay in the Netherlands in a host family. They are here to look after children and  learn more about the Dutch language and culture. The lesson materials that are used are the same as in the other beginners courses.
