Dutch pronunciation training

Dutch pronunciation training

for beginners, intermediate or advanced learners

You started learning Dutch and you find Dutch pronunciation difficult, so you would like more explanation and an opportunity to practise. This is precisely what the pronunciation training programme is for. You can follow this programme during the day.

Target group (A1-B2 level)

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 A1 to maximum B2 level.

Uitspraak training


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.

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.
