Dutch as a foreign language
Are you interested in learning the Dutch language? We offer in-person courses for adults in different levels starting September 11, 2021 and NT3 for elementary school aged children.
For children aged 6 to 12 years (grade 3-8) we practice with the method 'Horen, Zien en Schrijven' (HZS). This is an exercise program processing of the Dutch language. At the core of the program are 32 workbooks on appealing themes such as school, friends, family, animals and holidays. The workbooks are divided over 4 levels. The program is very suitable for beginners and everyone can board at their own level.
The classes are offered online only and in consultation with the teacher. Depending on the enrolment the group size may vary. If you like to have more information or to schedule a class, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
