Dutch Course Structure A1 Beginners

Dutch Academy Eindhoven offers intensive Dutch language courses to highly educated foreigners who are non-native speakers. This intensive Dutch course is intended for absolute beginners. During the course, you will learn to communicate in Dutch in everyday situations. Throughout the course priority is given to understanding and producing basic spoken Dutch for survival. In this intensive Dutch course, students deal with the entire elementary grammar of Dutch and build up a vocabulary of about 1.000 words within 11 weeks. The course concludes with a final online test. When you complete your Dutch course, you will receive a certificate of Dutch Academy Eindhoven.

Classroom activities
The course activities are founded upon various tasks. These tasks are functional, and are directly linked to a concrete situation, such as ‘having conversations with people on the street’ or ‘a basic job interview’. By using multimedia, we provide our students with opportunities to develop the four language skills; listening, reading, writing and speaking.

Dutch Course Eindhoven

Our Intensive Dutch Course consists of 3 parts:

1. Online Dutch Lessons with our Dutch teacher every week

2. Speaking Practice with Native Dutch speakers every week*

3. Online Learning (Homework) every week


Learning Dutch takes a lot of effort. We expect you to do the homework so that your fellow students can do exercises with you. When you do not prepare for lessons, your fellow students may have trouble doing exercises with you. This can be frustrating for them and slow down their progress. We know the value of delivering a quality course to our students. We accept only committed students. Homework: 10 hours per week (e-learning: 110 hours).

Speaking practice

We expect you to practice your speaking skills with native Dutch speakers every week. Our Native Dutch speakers are online every evening except Saturdays and Sundays. If you already speak a little of Dutch, you can start practising this week! You will be given speaking assignments.
