Our courses also introduce you to the culture and traditions of Dutch society and give you the opportunity to expand your network by meeting people with different nationalities, backgrounds and from different walks of life. • The academic standards at VU-NT2 ensure that you will be enrolled in a high-quality course, specifically developed for participants who have completed an appropriate level of secondary education (comparable with Dutch havo or higher). • During the year there are several oppor­tunities to join one of the group courses, from absolute beginner to advanced levels*. You will be allocated to the best group for you, according to your current level of proficiency. • Your focus will be on improving your spoken Dutch under the expert guidance of highly skilled and experienced teachers. You will also receive feedback on written or spoken homework assignments to help you improve your spelling, grammar, use of register and sentence structure. • The pace is reasonably fast. If you want to take full advantage of the course, it is essential that you also study at home. VU-NT2 also organizes in company and customised Dutch language courses for highly educated international employees and expats.
