Let people learn the Dutch language in an accessible and practice orientated way, while learning about Dutch culture throughout the topics.
Aim is to integrate the participants better within the society and get them involved with the language.
A weekly 10-classes Dutch course taught by volunteers. Both a beginners and advanced course is offered.
The beginners course focuses on every day matters, whereas the advanced course has a stronger focus on grammar.
In the middle of the course a social activity was offered where participants could put what the learned to practice.
We offer the course in collaboration with the career services of Utrecht University.
In our evaluation everyone mentioned having more insights in both Dutch culture and the Dutch language. They felt they could use it in easy daily conversations, for example at the store. Next to having learned the language a bit, they liked the casual vibe, teachers and meeting other international students.
