Dutch as a second language

General information on the Dutch courses

Learning the language is a good way to get familiar with the country you live in, for a shorter or longer period. At the Forum you can take courses 'Dutch language' on different levels, from beginning up to advanced. You will be introduced to the grammatical structure of the language and much attention is payed to practical skills like speaking and writing. The lessons are given by certified teachers. 

Language levels
New courses for the levels A1, A2, B1, B2 and C1 start three times a year: in january, april and september. Classes are twice a week and take one and a half hour. A course consists of 24 classes. For all levels there are afternoon- and evening groups.

Conversation lessons
Next to language courses Forum also offers conversation lessons for different levels (A, B and C). In small groups (max. 6 participants) you will talk about a variety of subjects, for example news items, experiences in the Netherlands, etc. These lessons are supervised by the same, certified teachers. They can answer questions about language and culture and also they will give feedback on your speaking skills. The main goal is to train these speaking skills in a safe and stimulating surrounding. Classes are once a week and take one and a half hour. Every cycle of conversation lessons consists of 12 classes.

Here you'll find more information on the several courses and on how to subscribe. If you are uncertain about your level of Dutch or have other questions about the classes, you can ask for a consultation with one of our teachers. Send an e-mail to info@forum.nl

To determine the course level we use the terms of the Common European Reference Framework (CEFR). This is the standard for language education in Europe. Here  you will find more information on the CEFR.
