Dutch as a second language | B2
This course is a follow-up to Nederlands als tweede taal (Dutch as a second language) B1 (level III). The course can also be attended if you already have a very considerable knowledge of the Dutch language.
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.
The course focuses on a number of more complicated grammatical issues. Participants will extend their vocabulary using authentically Dutch texts. There will also be a lot of attention to improving your speaking and writing skills. Course participants who attend at least 18 of the 24 lessons will, upon request, receive a certificate at the end of the course.
The course comprises 24 1.5-hour lessons, twice a week on Tuesdays and Thursdays (in the afternoon or evening).
