Dutch A2 (on-campus or online)


In this course, participants will extend their basic knowledge of Dutch, leading them to CEF-level A2. Participants receive a certificate after full attendance and if the course portfolio is evaluated positively.


The course consists of two lessons per week: a preparation lesson and a practice lesson. In the preparation lesson, you use the course’s online learning platform to listen to dialogues, practise and learn grammar, do exercises and learn the vocabulary, together with your classmates and under the guidance of a student-assistant.

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 A2/B1 course.

Duration and time investment

Attendance at every lesson is essential. The course consists of 20 lessons of two hours each, with two sessions every week: one preparation lesson and one practice lesson. Homework is expected to take approximately two hours per week, in addition to the preparation lesson.
