Study Dutch in Asia
Curious about the Dutch language? Are you planning to study at a Dutch or Belgian university? Is your employer sending you as an expat to the Flemish biotech industry or to the high-tech industry in the south of the Netherlands? Or will you get married to a Dutch or Belgian national?
DUTCH APPROACH provides Dutch language courses in Taiwan, Japan and Singapore! Our courses are ‘Beginner’, ‘Proficiency’ and any level in between: CEFR* A1 to C2. For levels A1 and A2 we use the method Start.nl, for higher levels we use the textbooks Nederland in actie/op niveau/naar perfectie. Teaching is in small groups of 4 to 8 students. Each course is 10 classes (1 class each week, 2 hours). In addition to our language courses we also provide preparation courses for the Civic Integration Exam, organised by the Dutch government.
DUTCH APPROACH is monitoring the COVID-19 situation closely, and follows government regulations. If the situation does not allow classes on location we will switch to online teaching.
In addition to our in-class courses DUTCH APPROACH provides online courses. So, no matter where you live, you can join Dutch class. These courses have the same content as our in-class courses. Online teaching is in small groups of 4 to 6 students. Each course is 10 classes (1 class each week, 2 hours). For more information on our online click on your country (Taiwan, Singapore, Japan, the Netherlands/Belgium or elsewhere).
Our teaching method
Our method Start.nl (part 1) is for people who want to learn Dutch quickly in a communicative and interactive way. The website and textbook are equally important, each chapter starts with ‘preparation’ on the website. After the preparation at the book’s website , students can put their new knowledge into practice in class. In every chapter there is also attention for Dutch culture. Homework for the course will be approximately 2 to 3 hours a week (20 to 30 minutes per day). The language of instruction is English.
Classes are confirmed after the minimum number of students have paid the tuition fee**.
