Do you want to learn Dutch well and pursue your studies?
Is Dutch not your mother tongue, but would you like to improve your language skills? In our NT2-courses, which are offered in Zwolle, you will be actively working on this. We work on expanding your vocabulary and grammar, you practice your reading and listening skills, and we prepare you for a bachelor's degree in the Netherlands. We offer various programmes, from level A0 to C1.
Did you go to school in another country and were you unable to finish your education? Then you can do so in the Netherlands. Voorbereidingsjaar vavo is a one-year course that prepares you for a special transition programme at Deltion Sprintlyceum in Zwolle. There you can obtain your havo-diploma. With your havo-diploma you can continue your studies.
If you want to study at a Dutch hbo or university, you have to meet strict requirements. In the NT2 Schakeljaar, we prepare you for your future education. You will improve your Dutch and learn more about society, mathematics and study skills. You will also follow subjects that are related to your future degree.
This is an intensive course Dutch as a Second Language (NT2), from A0 to level B1. It is a preparatory course for the Schakeljaar or if you want to achieve B1 level in one year in order to do the Staatsexamen NT2 programma 1. In the Schakeljaar, you are prepared for a course at a university or a college.
The NT2 B2-C1 course is a continuation of the Schakeljaar and is meant to increase your B2 level to C1 level. In this course, we train you to speak, read and write Dutch at level C1. This way, you can start your further education with confidence!
Depending on your schedule, you can follow this programme for 2,5 or 5 months.
