Course aim

The course aim is to reach level B2 (CEF). Participants can understand the main idea of complex texts, both with concrete and abstract subjects, including technical discourse in the participant?s own professional field. Participants can react fluently and spontaneously, in such a way that a normal exchange is possible with native speakers of Dutch, without any strain on either side. Participants can produce a clear, detailed text on a wide range of subjects, and they can give their opinion on a topical issue and give advantages as well as disadvantages of different options.

This course can serve as a preparation for the NT2 State Exam (programme 2). For more information about the NT2 exam and the application procedure, please check the website of DUO.
