Introduction to Dutch was developed to ease you into the process of learning Dutch. The course focuses on everyday language which you can immediately put into practice, such as greetings, common signs, useful phrases for shopping, travel, ordering at a restaurant, etcetera. Additionally, several aspects of Dutch culture are covered during the course. Through this practical and interactive approach, we want to help you jumpstart your Dutch learning process, making it easier for you to later combine the level-based courses with your studies and/or work.
The last lesson of this course is an introductory lesson of the level-based course Dutch A1. This way you can get acquainted with the teaching method of a level-based course and experience what it is like. After this course, you can decide whether you are ready to commit to a more intensive level-based language course.
Attendance at every lesson is essential. The course consists of six lessons of two hours each, with two sessions every week. Homework is expected to take approximately one hour per lesson. The study load for this course is roughly equivalent to 0,5 ECTS.
