Semi-Intensive Dutch Language Course

IMPORTANT MESSAGE : To limit the consequences of the corona virus, the University of Amsterdam has decided to suspend all teaching activities on location.

The Semi-Intensive course is the most popular INTT course. The course includes two lectures per week and takes six weeks in total, so it can be easily combined with a job or a study programme. The Semi-intensive programme is offered four times per year, on six different levels ranging from Absolute Beginners (CEFR 0) up until Advanced (CEFR B2).

Would you rather only have one lecture per week? Please have a look at our Extensive Dutch language course. Please note that this course is only offered for Absolute Beginners (CEFR A1) and Beginners (CEFR A2)

If you would rather attend a full-time Dutch language programme, please have a look at our Intensive Dutch language courses.


This course is taught at Absolute beginners-Advanced level (CEFR* levels: 0 - B2).
