Level: If you are a Beginner, you will start with week 1. If you already know some Dutch, you can start in week 2, 3, 4 or 5. After completing week 5, you will have reached level A2.
Content: This ABC course is for students who wish to achieve level A2 and prepares participants for the Inburgering exams. This is an ideal course for anyone who wants to live and work in a Dutch-speaking environment.
After completing this course, you will have reached level A2, which is a very important level. It is seen as the minimum level required to be able to use the Dutch language effectively in every day conversations. After this course, you will be able to arrange everything yourself necessary in daily life – in Dutch!
During the first 4 weeks of the course we work with the study book De Opmaat and focus on Speaking, Listening, Reading, Writing, Grammar and Vocabulary. In week 5 we pay extra attention to “Knowledge of Dutch society” and “Orientation on the Dutch labor market”, practice with sample exams and we give you personal feedback to prepare you for the actual exams in the best way possible.
It usually takes 5 weeks to reach level A2 and to get ready for the exams. By giving you the “best of the best” of many sample exams and exercises, we carefully monitor your development and advise you when you will be ready to take the exams.
The Inburgering exam certificate is required for integrating purposes and gives you better employment opportunities in The Netherlands.
