Company Intermediate ( A2 – B1 CEFR)
The intermediate course is meant for students who master the basics of Dutch and want to take it to the next level. In this course, your employees consolidate their knowledge of Dutch grammar and extensively practice and develop both their oral and written language skills. Throughout the course, students 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 intermediate course, your employees will be well prepared for the NT2 I state exam. Yet, more importantly, they will have become independent speakers of Dutch, who are ready to express themselves on any subject in both a social and professional context.
Like all our courses, the intermediate course is highly interactive and focuses on communication. Your employees prepare for every class by covering one chapter from the book and preparing a short essay and a five minute presentation independently. In class, the time will divided between oral revision of the homework, presentations and class discussions. There is great focus on the students’ own input, allowing room to focus on each student’s individual needs and interests. Dutch is spoken throughout the course.
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 intermediate course works with authentic Dutch material as much as possible, which will be adapted to the interests and needs of your employees.
This course requires an elementary knowledge of Dutch (A2 level CEFR). Before starting the course, Direct Dutch will assess your employees’ current level of Dutch in a free oral test.
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 you reached B1 level.
After the intermediate course, your employees are also well prepared to take the official NT2 State Exam Programme I. Click here to read more about this exam.
