In this advanced course, participants will extend their knowledge of Dutch, going from CEF-level B1/B2 to B2. Participants receive a certificate if the course portfolio is evaluated positively and after full attendance.
In order to prepare for the B2 exam, you will use chapters 4, 5 and 6 from the book Nederlands op Niveau to improve your language proficiency. The course consists of one lesson per week, with the exception of the first week. The first lesson is an introduction lesson of 1 hour were the teacher will give you more information about the set-up of the course.
During the practice lessons, you will work on your oral language skills under the guidance of your teacher. You can also ask your teacher questions about the self-study programme and about language issues that you encounter in every-day life.
You will be evaluated based on a portfolio, which you have to complete by the end of the course. The portfolio consists of listening and reading tests, writing assignments, a practical speaking exercise outside of class and a spoken exam in the final lesson. 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 1 lesson of 1 hour (first lesson) and 10 lessons of two hours.
Please take into account the fact that the course will involve approx. 6 hours of work per week: 4 hours of homework and 2 hours in the practice lesson. 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.
