After the summer, part of the lessons of VU-NT2 will be taught on campus again. We follow the guidelines of the VU and the Amsterdam Safety Region. Of course we ensure enough distance and small groups. Not all classes can take place on campus: some will still be online via Zoom for Education.
· The daytime courses Dutch to B1 and Dutch to B2 are partly on campus, partly online. Each group has 1 day per week on campus lessons, the other days online via Zoom. We call this hybrid education. Which day is on campus, and which days online, will be announced in August.
· The evening courses Basic Dutch on Campus, Dutch for Work and Study (sprint) and Professional Dutch are entirely online, via Zoom for Education.
· All lessons of the Saturday course Everyday Dutch will be on campus.
On the daytime group course Dutch for the NT2 State Exam II, you will learn Dutch up to B2 level in one calendar year. This means you will be able to understand difficult texts, write your own texts on a variety of topics, speak Dutch fluently and correctly, express your opinion and participate in discussions. You can start four times per year. After four or five modules each lasting nine weeks, you will be ready to take the NT2 State Exam II. You need this qualification if you want to go on to study at a university or a university of applied sciences in the Netherlands. VU-NT2 will advise you whether you need Level 5 to reach B2 Level, depending on your progress and results in Level 4. Candidates for civic integration can apply to DUO for a Dutch government loan to pay for the course.
