Nederlands niveau 1


First you see an explanation about the course content and our way of working. After reading the course description you may scroll down to register for a course.


The first level courses are intended for foreigners with little or no knowledge of, or fluency, in the Dutch language. You will obtain practical fluency in and written command of the Dutch language needed for daily communication.

According to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages, you will start at no knowledge (level 0) and obtain level A1. For more details, please google “Common European Framework of Reference for Languages”.

In the beginning of the course the teacher speaks a lot of English to explain the Dutch language. The reasons are a lot of different nationalities in the class and the frequency, a lesson of once a week. However, as the course proceeds, more and more Dutch will be used for explanations.


- Lessons of 1,25 or 1,5 hours in a classroom once a week
- Homework: AT LEAST 2 hours a week
- Presence in class: necessary to attend all lessons (or if not possible, miss only two or three)
- Students follow 1 course in a study year. Students learn Dutch in a normal pace.

- For students, having limited time to do homework due to personal circumstances or persons learning a language in a normal pace
- In general the most appropriate course Dutch level 1 for people, who do not have a Dutch social network at home and/or work.

Students need to make a considerable effort to get in contact with Dutch at LEAST a few times a week. You could perhaps watch Dutch TV, listen to Dutch songs or read small news articles on internet.


- Diploma of a secondary education of 10 years or more in country of student's origin.
- Good knowledge of English of the student required to follow the class.


Following textbook is used in class:
De Opmaat, Maud Beersmans en Wim Tersteeg, ISBN 978 908506723 8, about € 34,00

Mijn eerste lessen Nederlands heb ik gegeven in het reguliere middelbaar onderwijs. Maar al gauw werkte ik in het NT2. Daarom ben ik in de jaren negentig aan de universiteit van Tilburg gaan studeren in de specialisatie 'Taal en Cultuur'.
Bijna dertig jaar heb ik in gewerkt in het internationale middelbare onderwijs. Daarna heb ik lesgegeven op het ROC, nu Summacollege. Ik heb op alle niveaus gewerkt, van beginners tot intermediate, van A1 tot C1.
Ik vind het leuk om mijn taal, het Nederlands, aan anderstaligen te leren. En door mijn cursisten leer ik ook veel over hun taal, hun land en hun cultuur. Je kan altijd blijven leren van elkaar.
