For many years, Volksuniversiteit Den Haag (Institute for Adult Education) has offered courses for foreigners living in The Hague and its surrounding area. Dutch, as well as French and Spanish (amongst others), is one of the languages spoken in the EU membership countries. 

The curriculum of Dutch as a foreign language (NT2) consists of five levels. These levels are indicated by codes from the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR): A1 (beginners), A2 (semi-beginners), B1 (semi-intermediate), B2 (intermediate) and C1 (advanced). 

Our courses and their corresponding levels: 
Beginners 1 (A0/A1) 
Beginners 2 (A1/A2) 
Beginners 3 (A2) 
Semi-intermediate 1 (B1-a) 
Semi-intermediate 2 (B1-b) 
Intermediate 1 (B2-a) 
Intermediate 2 (B2-b) 
Advanced 1 (C1-a) 
Advanced 2 (C1-b) 
Advanced 3 (C1-c)

These courses are designed for those who have completed a secondary school education in their country of origin. They are also required to have at least some experience in foreign language acquisition. 
Please note: A basic knowledge of English is required to attend a beginners 1 course. 

Dutch as a foreign language (NT2) is in the same department as the other Modern Foreign Languages. Most courses encompass 30 teaching hours. We offer the following formats: 
- standard, 10 weeks, 1 lessons per week of 3 hours ; 
- intensive, 5 weeks, 2 lessons per week 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 (5-6 hours per week in a standard course and 5-10 hours in an intensive course). 
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.

"Taal geeft je woorden om te verwoorden wie je bent, waar je vandaan komt, wat je dromen zijn, waar je naartoe wilt. Taal zorgt ervoor dat je je plek in de wereld vindt!" Deze (ingekorte) tekst las ik eens ergens en dit past zo bij waar ik mij de afgelopen jaren via het geven van Nederlandse les en coachen & trainen voor inzet: een ieder zijn eigen weg in het leven laten vinden en bewandelen. Mijn eigen weg loopt via opleidingen op het gebied van onder andere communicatie, NLP, taal van het lichaam en NT2. Uit al deze opleidingen heb ik mijn eigen methodes/aanpak ontwikkeld, waarbij taal uit zoveel meer dan woorden alleen bestaat. Taal is voor mij een geheel van uitingen waarmee je aangeeft wie je bent, wat je wilt en wat je kunt. Wil jij beter worden in jezelf uiten, dan ben je van harte welkom bij de cursussen die ik voor de Volksuniversiteit Den Haag geef: Nederlands voor anderstaligen en Spreken in het openbaar.
