Social Dutch 3 is a practical course. The focus is on oral communication in Dutch. Subjects are more general than personal, for example: education and work and talking about the past and your future plans. In addition, your vocabulary will be expanded and you will train your listening and reading skills. Basic grammar will be repeated and expanded to a slightly higher level than in part 1 and 2 but still subordinate to communication skills and vocabulary.


This course runs for 15 online classes. There will be evening classes of 1.5 hours, twice a week. In addition to the classes, you will be spending 2 or 3 hours on homework each week, in order to attain the desired level.If there are fewer than ten participants (but more than five), the course will run for 12 instead of 15 sessions, as a smaller group will be able to go through the content more quickly. The maximum number of participants is 15.

* Any classes cancelled due to illness of the teacher will be made up at the end of the course.
