Course information: Dutch C1.1 and C1.2

From September 2024, this course will also be offered offline (physically) in the evening from 6:30 PM to 9:00 PM.

In the C1 courses (C1.1 and C1.2) you continue to practice with giving presentations, having discussions and talking about complex (scientific) subjects. You learn a lot of new words. You repeat and practice with the words that give structure to a text. You get started with summarizing a text, with writing and speaking. We will also work at pronunciation and we'll practice grammar.

The study material: we work with Nederlands naar Perfectie (the book and the website). We also use the Study Guide developed by Lest Best.

The C1 courses are intensive (9 weeks per course), requiring a lot of self-study. The lessons consists of fun and varied group assignments based on what you have studied at home. There is plenty of room for specific questions and you will receive personal attention from the teacher.
