NT2 module A1

Ambience photo Fontys

From level A0 to A1


For people who have never learned Dutch before, the language may seem totally incomprehensible. It doesn’t have to stay like that, though! In this module you will start from scratch and very quickly you should be able to understand some simple written and spoken language and be able to communicate a little bit in Dutch.


Reach CEF level A1 for Dutch reading, writing, listening and speaking skills.


Lessons are structured in a way to encourage students to communicate in Dutch. The largest part of the classroom time is used for practising new material in various ways. Of course, there is also time for questions and explanations of grammar and vocabulary.


Students study a unit from the textbook each week. The last week of the module is allocated for revision and a test. The language of instruction is English and Dutch.
