Intensive winter course Social Dutch III (online)

Would you like to be able to speak Dutch to colleagues or friends? Did you complete Social Dutch II and would you like to continue learning Dutch? Or have you already acquired some basic Dutch and would you like to expand your knowledge? And on top of that, would you like to know for example how to ask someone the way and how to answer that question? Or how to talk in the past in two ways? Then our online intensive winter course Social Dutch III course is just the thing for you.

Target group

Social Dutch III is intended for those who already have a basic knowledge of Dutch or pick up new languages quickly.

To register for Social Dutch III


To start at level III, some prior knowledge of Dutch is required. If you have passed level II, you can participate in level III. You can also start at level III if you have studied Dutch before, for example in your home country.

In this course we use the book part 2 – Dutch for beginners. You will be doing chapters 1, 2, 3, 5 and 5. Subjects and situations that will be dealt with in Social Dutch III include talking about what you do on holiday, asking someone the way and how to answer that question, describing the future, writing a formal letter or email and typical aspects of Dutch culture.

During classes the focus is on communication and actively engaging with this material.

At the end of the course, there will be a curriculum-dependent test.
