    General

    Schedule your intake assessmentKeep me informed

    New dates for this course will be announced soon. Fill in the form using the ‘keep me informed’ button and we will let you know when you can register.

    In the training programme, you will receive explanations concerning various aspects of pronunciation. These include stress, rhythm, intonation, sentence stress, and connected speech (the way in which we ‘glue’ words together). We will also devote attention to sounds that are difficult for many non-Dutch speakers, such as /aa/, /uu/ or /ui/. In every class, we will practise two aspects, and you will receive personal feedback.

    Based on the results of the assessment at the end of the programme, you will receive personal advice and pronunciation tips.

    Target group (level A2-B2)

    Highly educated non-Dutch speakers who would like to work on improving their pronunciation. This course is suitable for anyone who masters Dutch from minimum at A2 to maximum B2 level.

    This course is taught in person. Every participant is offered a 15-minute assessment, during which the teacher assesses what pronunciation difficulties you experience. At the end of the course, you will be offered another assessment. This will allow us to assess your progress.
