Elementary and Post-Elementary

Elementary Dutch Course

‘Lekker!’ ‘Leuk!’ ‘Gezellig!‘ Since you arrived in the Netherlands you have heard these words many times, but what do they actually mean? And what is it about life in the Netherlands that makes it so incredibly ‘Leuk’, ‘Lekker’ and ‘Gezellig’? You need a Dutch survival kit.

In this program, we’ll be working on the basics of the language. Daily Dutch is our main focus. In a café, At the market, In a restaurant and At the doctor are just a few examples of themes we work on at this stage. Sound like fun? Or ‘leuk’, as we say.

Post-Elementary Dutch Courses

You have the basics of Dutch and now you’re ready to move it on to the next level and gain confidence using the language. In this program, you will consolidate the basics you have learned so far. Daily Dutch is still at the heart of the vocabulary we learn.

In the Post-Elementary Dutch course, you will learn to use the past tense and move on to constructing more complex sentences. Conversational Dutch is still our main focus. You will be talking about your work, general interests, travel, food, and more. Sounds like fun? Then join us!

There is a minimum of 4 applicants for the course to be viable. You will be informed if the course does not go ahead. If so, then naturally you will be offered a different course or a refund.

Homework

The general rule for homework during your language course is as follows:

for each individual class, you need to factor in the same amount of time for the homework.

Say, for instance, you have a 90-minute class once a week, then the time you should spend on the homework should be 90 minutes as well. Before you start doing your homework it is important to time yourself. Cap your homework time at that 90-minute mark. Don’t worry if you haven’t finished.

Bear in mind it is more productive to do your homework in three half-hour sessions spread out through the week, than in one 90-minute session. The secret to learning is routine.
