You start by learning the basic principles of Dutch so by the end of the course you can conduct simple conversations in everyday life and work situations. At this stage you need a lot of input, so you do a lot of listening. Then you begin to practice speaking. You also gain an insight into the grammatical rules of the language.
Among other things you will acquire the skills you need to:
- conduct a conversation with your colleagues.
- order something in a restaurant.
- make purchases.
