Evening course Dutch for very advanced plus students (C1+)

In the online Evening course Dutch: Advanced plus (C1+), you optimise your Dutch language skills. You get a better grip on the language and become even more confident using it. You also work on several points for improvement.

    General

    What will the course bring you?

    You will learn to communicate clearly and purposefully (and target group orientated) in Dutch. This covers all skills: speaking, listening, reading and writing. As part of this, attention is paid to grammar, vocabulary and speaking skills. The reading and writing skills are largely prepared in individual study time.

    You learn to make decisions efficiently under time constraints. You will improve the professional and/or academic impression you make when you communicate. In the process, you will gain insight into your strengths and weaknesses as a language user. You learn to take better advantage of your strengths and eliminate shortcomings based on practical feedback.

    Target group

    Non-Dutch speakers who already have a good command of Dutch (at least C1 level), but who want to improve their Dutch further. For example, because you need Dutch for professional or study purposes. You have noticed that the bar quite is high in your workplace or during your studies when it comes to the Dutch language. You want to have even more impact and to participate fully.

    Final level: The course will help you on the way to CEFR level C2.

    Active participation

    This is an online training course. In the training course, you will learn from the teacher, of course, but you will learn a lot from each other too: you will give each other feedback on texts and exchange ideas on a forum. In between classes, you will also receive individual feedback from your teacher.

    The course’s success depends on participants doing and submitting their portfolio assignments regularly, and actively participating. The use of the Dutch language in participants’ work and/or study environment is the course’s starting point. The learning environment also acts as a community where non-Dutch speakers help each other in terms of writing.

    Practical details

    This course will take place from 10 October 2024 until 16 January 2025.

    • Course day: Thursday
    • Times: 4:00 - 5:45 pm

    The course takes place online in the Virtual Classroom, with max. 12 participants.

    If a lesson is cancelled, the catch-up lesson will take place the week after the last lesson.

    Assessment

    The course is concluded with a portfolio. An assignment has been developed for each chapter that connects to material covered in the course and a practical assignment. These two types of assignments cover all skills and combined skills. The portfolio is submitted in Brightspace, and teachers assess the assignments using a rubric.
    Please note: your portfolio will only be assessed if you have attended at least 80% of classes.

    More information and plan your assessment

    We recommend you send the certificates you obtained before or the course material you used before info [at] into.ru.nl (as an e-mail to us) so that the level assessment can proceed as efficiently as possible.

    Intake assessments are carried out by telephone or on Skype. Ensure that you have filled in your telephone number. The interviewer will contact you to discuss which medium will be used to conduct the intake interview (by telephone or on Skype).

    If you want to get an idea of your level on your own, you can do this using our online level test.
