Online Summer Program

We are offering another fun Dutch online children's program for different age groups and levels this summer. In addition, we have also developed a wonderful online Dutch program for adults.

Online crash summer course Dutch for adults - beginners (from 18 years) + intermediate level

For whom: students who want to accelerate the first semester of the A1 level (Beginners Basic I). After this course they will be able to start with the 2nd semester of the A1 level (Beginners Basic II) in September 2022.

Program: “Who are you, what do you do and where do you come from?” With this course, the students learn the basics of the Dutch language in a group setting. They will learn how to introduce themselves, how to have a simple conversation, and more. This introduction does not require any prior knowledge of the language. In addition to learning basic grammar, we pay a lot of attention to conversation, pronunciation and enriching the vocabulary to develop good oral language skills, using different situations as a basis.

Online language and culture summer camp - children and teenagers

For whom: for students who are currently taking our online classes (Dutch as a 2nd language) or students with knowledge of the Dutch language. We will have different groups by age and level (5-7 year olds, 7-10 year olds, 11-16 year olds).

Program: the 5-7 year olds will participate in our fun and interactive program and will learn about Dutch culture and customs. For the older groups (different age groups), the emphasis is on summer, travel and culture. The theme is "going on a virtual vacation to the Netherlands/Belgium". The aim of the course is that the students stay involved with the Dutch language in a fun and interactive way, learn vocabulary about vacation and travel and learn more about the culture. During the lessons, the students will make various virtual trips in the Netherlands and Belgium (Amsterdam, Utrecht, Brugge, museums) and learn about Dutch and Belgian culture and customs. In this way they will deepen their acquired knowledge of the past school year, learn a lot of new vocabulary, continue to work with the Dutch language in the summer and be completely ready again for the new school year.

When: 8 one-hour lessons on a weekday between 4 and 6 pm from the week June 20 to the week of August 12, 2022.
