The Inburgerings Preparation course was very thorough and covered all the areas of the various exams well. I feel well prepared and am very glad I did this course. I don't think I would have had the discipline to do the study without this structured format of these classes. Thank you for the good lessons and patience whilst we learnt.
Thank you to Jacqueline. She is patient and accommodating in teaching and motivates us for the next steps. I never feel that I am lost during the course. I hope to have her for the next steps.
I was looking for Dutch courses for a long time and finally registered at kickstart school because they were less expensive than other schools. I though that the price would affect their professionalism but I was so wrong. The administration, the teachers, the materials are just perfect perfect perfect.
Delighted that I could follow this course from the comfort of my home during COVID. I really appreciated the teacher adapting to working online. Good way to practice my reading, writing, speaking and listening skills as well as learning about the Dutch Society and orientation to the Dutch Labour Market (ONA).
Despite the current corona situation, I find the online classes were good. Of course, it could be nice to have a direct connection with the teacher and other students who are following the same course. In sums, the contents of the course was clear and very helpful for the Inburgering Exam. My expectations are filled.
Easy to sign up because of helpful & friendly staff. I completed the course for the Inburgering Exams and feel confident that i will pass the exams because of this course. Very insightful and useful for living in the Netherlands. Heel erg bedankt, Margreet. :)
Three steps are required for you to prepare for the Inburgering exam:
- A0-A1 Starterpack Dutch for Beginners Course
- A1-A2 Stepping Stone I Dutch Course
- A2+ Inburgering Dutch Exam Preparation
You must do Steps 1 and 2 in order to enrol in Step 3 (unless you already have an upper-elementary level).
The Inburgering exam consists of six parts: Reading, Writing, Speaking, Listening, Knowledge of Dutch Society (KNM), and Orientation to the Dutch Labour Market (ONA).
Knowledge of Dutch Society (KNM) involves introducing you to the many ways in which Dutch society is organised, as well as exploring Dutch institutions, customs, and behaviour. The new examination requirement ‘Orientation to the Labour Market’ will also be covered.
Orientation to the Dutch Labour Market (ONA) has been incorporated into the exam since 1st January 2015. Preparation for this part of the exam consists of 90 minutes of private lessons in which the teacher provides feedback on the student’s portfolio and coaching for the ONA interview.
