Company advanced

Company advanced ( B1 – B2 CEFR)

The advanced course is meant for students who are able to use Dutch (more or less) fluently in every-day life and want to master the language on a professional level. In this course, your employees independently consolidate their knowledge of Dutch grammar. In class, students develop their writing and speaking kills discussing articles from Dutch quality newspapers on a wide range of topics in oral and written assignments.

Throughout the course, your employees are asked to actively use the Dutch language allowing them to expand their vocabulary and fluency and allowing the teacher to watch their development closely and give them individual feedback.

After the advanced course, your employees will have become independent speakers of Dutch, who are ready to express themselves fluently and correctly on any subject in both a social and professional context.

Method

Like all our courses, the advanced course is highly interactive and focuses on communication. Your employees prepare for every class by covering a chapter from the book, summarizing a newspaper article and preparing a short essay and a presentation. In class, the students will look at some of the essays in detail and concentrate  on presentations and class discussion. There is a lot of room for  the students’ own input, allowing the teacher to focus on each student’s individual needs and interests. Dutch is spoken throughout the course.

Culture

At Direct Dutch, we believe that it is impossible to separate a language from its cultural context. There is an important role for Dutch culture throughout our courses. The advanced course exclusively works with authentic Dutch material, which will be adapted to the interests and needs of your employees.

Prerequisites

This course requires an intermediate knowledge of Dutch (B1 level CEFR). Before starting the course, Direct Dutch will assess your employees’ current level of Dutch in a free oral test.

Examination

At the end of the course, there will be written test assessing your level of Dutch. Upon handing in this test, your employees will receive a Direct Dutch certificate, stating whether they have reached B2 level.
