Due to internationalisation and other factors, an increasing amount of people have been travelling to the Netherlands on a long-term basis for either work or other purposes. These people often have little to no knowledge of the Dutch language, which makes it harder for them to fully integrate within the country. Our Dutch courses can help these people improve their Dutch communication skills, and thus help them communicate more efficiently during work and real life.
Our intermediate Dutch course for Expats is suitable for participants within corporate life that have some basic knowledge of the Dutch language but would like to improve further. In this course, participants will learn the basics of the Dutch language within a short period of time. Together with our certified NT2-teacher they will develop and improve their Dutch speaking, listening, reading and writing skills.
Improved communication and effectiveness
Effectiveness in the workplace is dependent on good communication. Participants that follow a Dutch course at Spring Instituut will be able to improve their Dutch communication skills, and therefore be able to communicate better in the workplace and their daily life.
Flexible and personal
When participants start with a Dutch course, a NT2-teacher from Spring Instituut will personally visit them for their weekly lessons. Additionally, participants will study independently through either a workbook or an app. This gives the participants the flexibility to follow a part of the course at their own pace.
Our Dutch courses can always be customized upon request. We are able to tailor the course to the needs of the participants. This could be done by, for example, changing the duration, schedule or contents of the course.z
In our Dutch course, participants will learn by means of weekly sessions with our NT2-teacher. These sessions will be complemented by the participants through independent study in either a workbook or an app. The students will also apply what they have learned in the session in their daily life. Some of the subjects that the participants will learn about include learning and working, traffic and transport, media and communication, and more.
Our Dutch course starts with a non-committal intake consisting of a test and a short interview. During this intake a NT2-teacher will determine the Dutch language levels of the participants.
Based on the results of the intake and the current Dutch language level of the participants the NT2-teacher will draw up an advice for the program and contents of the course.
When the participants have agreed to this advice it is possible to start with the course and weekly sessions with the NT2-teacher. These sessions will be held at a location of the participants choosing.
After the participants have completed the course successfully, they will receive a certificate. We will also discuss the possibilities of taking a follow-up course in the future.
