Our beginners’ courses are suitable for students with little to no knowledge of Dutch. In a beginners’ course you will take your Dutch language skills to A2 level, the level required for the Civic Integration Exam.

Standard course for beginners – Code+ 

Do you have little experience learning a second language? Or would you like to learn a language at a relaxed pace? Then we recommend the standard course. This course consists of four 2.5-hour classes a week. In addition, students are also required to do homework for each class. At the end of this 12-week course, you will have reached an elementary level (A2) in Dutch.

Crash course for beginners – Delftse Methode

Are you an experienced language learner and would you like to learn a language fast? Then our crash
course is right for you. This course is taught using the Delftse methode, a unique and straightforward
method for learning Dutch at the A2 level in just ten weeks, developed by the Delft University of
Technology. It focuses on all four language skills (speaking, writing, reading and listening) and you
will learn 2.000 new words. This course is very demanding and students are asked for their time and
full commitment. The study load is 20 hours a week.
