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. Our courses are designed for highly educated people. Having a higher education degree is not an absolute must, but please take into account that our courses are not suitable for slow learners. How would rate your speed of learning?
7. Here are two reviews of our students:

"The lessons were really nice. I really liked the way of teaching. However, the course is quite intensive and demands a lot of time for homework".

"Docents are very qualified and focused on make you learn as fast as possible. The lessons are well structured and the website is full of examples to continue improving. I particularly enjoyed the recipes. It was like cooking with Dutch language. I have already joined A2. One suggestion: because it is a very intensive course, join only if you have high motivation."
