Cursus Nederlands voor anderstaligen

Dutch as a foreign language (NT2) is in the same department as the other Modern Foreign Languages. Most courses consist of 8 or 10 weekly lessons of 3 hours.

The lessons focus on everyday language and its characteristics like listening, speaking, reading and writing. During the classes, you will listen to spoken Dutch on cd, read different types of texts, practise conversation and study the basic grammar rules and spelling.
Knowledge of the Dutch culture is also a substantial part of the course as it will help you adjust to and understand the Dutch way of life. 
In order to successfully complete the course, it is necessary to do your homework and assignments for each next lesson (about 5-6 hours per week). If you attended at least 80% of the classes, you will be tested at the end of the course in order to determine the required level. When the results are adequate, you will receive a certificate of the Volksuniversiteit. This is, however, not an official diploma but it will give you access to the next level. 
Without a certificate, it is only possible to start on a higher level after an oral intake test. You can make an appointment for a test through our secretariat.
