Intensive Dutch Language Course

The Intensive Dutch language programme is a full-time programme (eight weeks). It is taught in 16 contact hours per week, plus an estimated 20 hours of homework per week. This course is perfect for those who aim to improve their Dutch quickly and who benefit from an intensive teaching method. Combining this course with other commitments such as studying or a job is not recommended. The Intensive course is available at four levels, from 1 (CEFR 0) until 4 (CEFR B2).

If you are looking for a course that can be more easily combined with a study programme or a job, please have a look at the Semi-intensive Dutch language course.
