In this advanced course, participants will extend their knowledge of Dutch, going from CEF-level B1/B2 to B2.
In order to prepare for the B2 exam, you will use chapters 4, 5 and 6 from the book Nederlands op Niveau in order to improve your language proficiency. Every week, there will be a meeting in which you will work on your oral language skills under the guidance of a teacher. In addition, you will work both independently and together with your fellow students on reading skills, vocabulary, grammar and writing skills, with the aid of a study guide. You will do writing assignments on which you will receive feedback from the teacher. During the course meetings, you can ask questions about the self-study programme and about language issues that you encounter in every-day life.
At the end of the course, you will take a test that consists of a written and an oral part. If the result is satisfactory, you will be able to enrol in the B2/C1 course or register for the State Examination NT2, programme II.
Attendance at every lesson is essential. The course consists of 20 lessons of two hours each, with two sessions every week: one study lesson and one practice lesson.
Please take into account the fact that the course will involve approx. 6 hours of work per week: 2 hours of homework, 2 hours in the study group, and 2 hours with the teacher. Homework is best divided into four times half an hour, which works better than doing everything in one go.
Admission is granted based on certificates obtained from earlier language courses, in this case, Dutch B1/B2, or an intake exam, which you can register for here.
