Content information

Starting level: B2 (CEF)

Objective: see "Content"

The course Dutch for speakers of other languages 6 comprises a conversation and a writing module for advanced learners.

In this course you learn how to express yourself fluently and spontaneously without any preparation and without much obvious searching for expressions.

You can understand more difficult and longer texts, like those you will encounter during your studies. You can also recognize implicit meaning.

You can use Dutch flexibly and effectively for social, academic and professional purposes.

Specific tasks with recent and universal topics focus on different aspects of oral skills: pronunciation, fluency, accuracy, register, idioms,… The oral exercises require a preparation before each session (reading a journal, watching the news, gathering information,…) and an assimilation task afterwards.

Placement test: Yes

Final test: The Final Test of Level 6 is the ITNA Test B2 and C1. For more information about this test, see https://www.itna.be/over-de-test/
