Language courses

Learning a new language is great fun

If you attend a language training with us, you don't have to do a test or an exam (except in the Dutch as a foreign language courses) and you don't have to worry about getting certificates. Most people enrol out of personal interest. 

Learning a new language is not only useful, but also great fun. This is reflected in the atmosphere in our classes: professional but informal. You'll be encouraged to learn to speak, write, listen and read in a foreign language.

For the beginners courses, a basic knowledge of Dutch is required. For the intermediate and advanced courses, a relevant level in Arabic is required.

Deze zijn als volgt: 

  • A1: beginners
  • A2: halfbeginners
  • B1: halfgevorderden
  • B2: gevorderden
