EDUCATION

LEARNING DUTCH • Learning Dutch is a crucial step to integration in the Netherlands and part of the immigration and integration (inburgering) procedure. • Europeans are not obliged to follow the inburgering procedure. • There is a wide choice of commercial language courses on offer to suit individual needs and budgets, with courses ranging from ‘Dutch for Au Pairs’ to more intensive NT2 (Nederlands als Tweede Taal) classes.

• Ask about the average class sizes. The smaller the class size (generally), the higher the fee. • Universities often provide beginner Dutch classes for non-students, although, as you would expect, a certain level of academic ability is required to keep up. • Homework is an essential part of the learning progress. • Some organisations fund language lessons as part of relocation, which might also include lessons for partners.
