Have you lived in the Netherlands for some time and find that your language is not developing beyond the level of simple everyday conversation?

Then Kickstart School’s pre-Intermediate Dutch course will take your Dutch to the next level. 

In this intermediate Dutch course emphasis is placed on expanding vocabulary and improving fluency in speaking. You will have the opportunity to discuss the news and Dutch culture and to give short presentations. Discussions in lessons will focus on work and free time, travelling and expressing feelings.  

More advanced grammar and vocabulary is introduced and explored through newspaper articles, film clips, and book chapters to bring you to an intermediate level (B1).  This course also includes related writing exercises.
