Dutch Academy Eindhoven Placement for New Students (6 questions)

Please take note, you can take this test only one time!

1. Why would you like to learn Dutch?
2. How much time are you going to spend on your homework?
3. How much time are you going to spend on practicing Dutch every week (speaking, reading, listening, trying to communicate with Dutch people)?
4. How would you rate your level of English?
5. Do you know the difference between 'Your' and 'You’re'? Even native English speakers often make mistakes with these two words.

Your is a possessive – it means something belongs to you. Example: your name, your car, your house.
The word you’re is short for 'you are'. Example: you’re beautiful, you’re smart, you’re welcome.
6. What is the difference between Holland and the Netherlands?

The Netherlands consists of 12 provinces but many people use “Holland” when talking about the Netherlands. The official name of the country is the Kingdom of the Netherlands. The Netherlands consists of twelve provinces: Groningen, Friesland, Drenthe, Overijssel, Flevoland, Gelderland, Utrecht, North-Holland, South-Holland, Zealand, North Brabant, and Limburg. Holland actually only means the two provinces of Noord-Holland and Zuid-Holland.
