Experience the Dutch language

Learning and Living Dutch: Online classes

Experience the Dutch language in small groups

 
The Dutch courses of AvaLingua are all about interaction and practicing your Dutch in real life. You will learn how to put your Dutch into practice in everyday situations. We will also be practicing this during our activities outside the classroom and for the online classes we created interesting different activities. Some examples of the activities are finding your way through the supermarket, interview people and order something in a cafe. In this way, you have the opportunity to experience using your Dutch together with other students (max. 6) while being guided by your teacher. Living and learning Dutch: That is the AvaLingua way of learning Dutch!

In short, during this course you will learn and experience how to use the Dutch language actively in everyday situations. The main focus during the class will be on improving your speaking skills. Next to that, you we will improve your writing, listening and reading skills. We pay attention to grammar and vocabulary as well.
