Social Dutch 4 (online course)

This online course is particularly suitable for students who want to improve their Dutch. The focus of these courses is on communication, but attention is also given to Dutch habits and customs.

Course level

Entry level: A2 (CEFR)
Level on completion: Halfway to B1 (CEFR)

Course content

The main objective of these courses is to learn to communicate in Dutch. All skills are developed: speaking, listening, reading, and writing. More attention than in the Social Dutch-courses 1 to 3 is given to such matters as grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation. Reading and writing skills are mostly practiced in the time allotted for self-study. The maximum number of participants is 15.


This course runs for 15 online classes. There will be 2 weekly classes of 1.5 hours a day. In addition to the classes, you will be spending 3 to 4 hours on homework each week. Participants are expected to spend a lot of time on self-study 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. 

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