A0 to A1
In the A0-A1 course you will learn how to understand, speak and read Dutch on an elementary level.
The subjects are learning how to introduce yourself, talking about personal interests and giving personal information, asking and giving directions, the weather, numbers, telling the time, shopping and other practical things.
During your classes, you will get practical instructions and you will work in small groups, in pairs or with your teacher on assignments and your homework. You will develop your speaking, reading, writing and listening until A1 level.
Our teachers are always experienced and trained professionals. They understand your individual learning needs and style and they motivate and guide you in the learning process. Their aim is to teach you all the practical Dutch language skills you need to live and work in The Netherlands. There is an open and friendly atmosphere in all our classes and students work together under close supervision from the teacher.
