Do you want to learn or improve your Dutch? I’m starting two new online groups in September. On Tuesday mornings I’ll have lessons for absolute beginners and on Friday afternoons for somewhat more advanced students. Not sure which group would be right for you? Feel free to contact me and discuss what would be your best option!
Learning Dutch online is
Absolute beginners (A0 - A1)
This course is for those who have never taken Dutch classes before or very few. You might know how to greet someone, but really not much more than that. In this course you will learn the basics of the language: asking and answering questions about yourself and your family, making plans, going to the (super)market, etc.
We will work with the book Nederlands in gang, covering chapters 1-8. That makes it a pretty high paced course. Count on doing 2-4 hours of homework a week as well. But remember: the more you practice, the more you will learn!
The group will be 4-6 persons, so you’ll have lots of personal attention. Lessons are every Tuesday 9 – 11 am, starting September 13. There are 10 lessons, so a total of 20 hours.
If you’ve taken a Dutch course before and are comfortable with the basics, it’s time to sign up for the next level. You will learn talking about the past and make more complicated sentences. Also you will broaden the kind of topics you are able to talk about: going to the doctors, traveling, small talk, etc.
In this course we will also use the book Nederlands in gang, covering chapters 8-18. As things are getting a little bit more difficult, this course is somewhat slower paced than the absolute beginners course, allowing for more time to practice! Do count on doing 2-4 hours of homework every week and remember: practice makes perfect!
The group will be 4-6 persons, so you’ll have lots of personal attention. Lessons are every Wednesday, starting October 12th. There are 25 lessons, so a total of 50 hours. There will be a break in between Christmas and New Years.
Would you prefer private lessons? That is also possible. Invidvual lessons can be at any level (A0 – C2), and focus on what you want and need to practice. We can do a general course or one that is focused on for example (business) writing. Lessons are 90 minutes (online). The fee is 375 euros per 5 lessons.
Lessons can start at any time during the year and will be scheduled whenever is convenient for both of us (I work Tuesday – Friday, 9 am – 5 pm)
