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.

 Taalcursussen op meerdere niveaus

Onze talencursussen zijn toegankelijk voor iedereen, ongeacht leeftijd. Voor onze beginnerscursus is helemaal geen voorkennis vereist. Het enige dat we van u verwachten is dat u de lessen regelmatig bijwoont en het opgegeven huiswerk maakt. Als u deel wilt nemen aan een cursus talen voor gevorderden, dan moet u de taalvaardigheid kunnen overleggen. De zes niveaus die wij aanbieden corresponderen met het Europees Referentiekader (ERK). Deze zijn als volgt: 

  • A1: beginners
  • A2: halfbeginners
  • B1: halfgevorderden
  • B2: gevorderden
  • C1: vergevorderden
  • C2: (bijna) moedertaalspreker
