Program: Dutch A2 language course
You get to work on your Dutch. This course focuses on all 4 language skills:
We also look at the relevant grammar and work on building your vocabulary.
The Dutch A2 course starts on 18 September 2023. It lasts for 16 weeks with classes taking place at the HAN campus in Arnhem. The class times are:
- Monday from 17:30 to 19:45
- Wednesday from 17:30 to 19:45
The next course start date is in January 2024.
To maintain the quality, the groups will have no more than 20 students.
During class, you practice your listening and speaking skills and complete various exercises. The lecturer gives you feedback on these exercises. You also get homework to help you improve your reading and writing skills and your grammar and vocabulary. You can also do your homework at the HAN study and multimedia center. You spend about 6-8 hours a week on self-study.
Learning a language takes commitment and discipline. So we expect that from all our participants. This way you know you can rely on your fellow course participants during the course!
During the course you use the textbook Contact! Nieuw 2. This book is included in the course fee.
You will have access to a special online environment. HAN provides the necessary software: you don't need to purchase anything for that. It is important that you have your own laptop with a working microphone and camera. You also need a good WiFi connection. That’s it!
At the end of the course you do a test at the A2 level. Reached this level? Then you receive a certificate. This means you can continue to the next level.
Exams are held on the HAN campus.
We offer a series of 4 courses. You can also take one or more separate courses. The first 3 courses help you reach the level required of the NT2 State Exam, program II (B2). The 4th course helps you achieve C1 level. The Dutch A1&A2 language course is the 1st course in the series. It helps you achieve language level A2 (basic user).
At the A2 level, you understand sentences and common words. Think of topics like personal details, family, shopping, local surroundings and work. You can communicate simply about your own background, your direct surroundings and various needs.
Have you successfully completed the A1 course? Or do you have a certificate showing you have the A1 level? Are you willing to spend around 10 hours per week (2 lessons per week + self-study) on learning Dutch? Then sign up for our Dutch A2 course. You work towards level A2 in 16 weeks.
