The conversation course is meant for students who have completed Social Dutch I and II, and who wish to improve their Dutch speaking skills even more. The course is also open to students who have taken an A1 Dutch course elsewhere, and who wish to learn how to speak Dutch more easily, fluently and confidently.
The conversation course teaches you how to speak everyday Dutch in a more easy-going, fluent and confident manner. The course will cover topics such as providing information about yourself, requesting information from others at social events (such as parties, student gatherings and introductory meetings), talking about your hobbies, giving your opinion, making an appointment (with fellow students, roommates, the dentist), etc. The teacher will explain the exercises, repeat standard vocabulary and grammar, and will provide extensive feedback when participants are speaking.
The pilot course will go ahead if there are at least ten registrations. The maximum number of participants is 14.
