Dutch as a second language (NT2)
Learn the Dutch language
Do you want to learn the Dutch language and do not have an obligation to civically integrate? Then you can learn to read, write and speak Dutch in our Dutch language course. The courses are suitable for both beginners and advanced students.
The Dutch as a second language course is intended for anyone who:
- wants to learn Dutch;
- wants to advance their level of Dutch;
- wants to take the NT2 state examination.
After your application, we will invite you for an intake interview. We will ask you to take a test to determine your language level. During the intake interview, we will give you advice in the form of a course plan. This will include what you will be learning, how you will do it and how long you should take to complete it. During the intake, you will also receive more information about the content of your language course. During the course, you will have your own course counsellor.
WHAT WILL YOU LEARN?
The Da Vinci College course is on the one hand focused on learning the Dutch language well, with attention to the basics of the language, such as grammar, vocabulary, speaking, listening, writing and reading with recognised teaching methods for the alpha, 0-A1, A1-A2, A2-B1 and B1-B2 levels.
DURATION OF THE COURSE
You will be taught two half-days a week. How long you receive lessons for depends on your own wishes and the agreements made during the intake. In the Councils of Altena and Hoeksche Waard, agreements have been made regarding the duration of the course.
PROGRESS AND COMPLETION OF THE COURSE
During the course, you will complete various tests and assignments. You will compile these test results and the assignments in a portfolio. At the end of the course, you will receive a certificate.
It is possible to complete the course with an exam which, if passed, will entitle you to a recognised diploma.
The fees for the Dutch as a second language course are € 15 per lesson hour, excluding learning materials. The fees for the total course depend on the duration of the course. In the Councils of Altena and Hoeksche Waard, the fees are partly paid by the Council. You can email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
