Dutch as a second language
NT2. Dutch as a second language. The collective name for all Dutch language courses for foreigners. Dutch for foreigners. Are you a foreign expat working in the Netherlands? Or have you already lived here for years and wish to acclimatise? If the answer is ‘yes’, NT2 language training from Language Partners is the ideal way to make you really feel at home or speak better Dutch at work.
Our trainers teach you Dutch grammar so that you can quickly and above all effectively communicate, both verbally and in writing. In a playful manner, you will learn Dutch words to help you go shopping, visit the doctor or look for a job via a temporary agency. Your vocabulary will be enriched by typical Dutch words, such as gezellig, polderen and Sinterklaas. On completing your course, you will have more self-confidence. You will suddenly be able to pronounce the word “Scheveningen”. Your training will also be perfect preparation for the government NT2 examination.

Customisation and fees
Our business English training courses are all tailor-made courses. This means that when writing a proposal for a tailor-made course, we take into consideration the results of our intake procedure and also your personal:
- Starting level
- Learning objectives
- Work situation
- Learning style
As part of our proposal we provide advice on:
- The type of training, e.g. classical, online only or blended learning
- The intensity of the course, e.g. a crash course or 1 training session a week
- The lesson programme
When can you start your course?
As soon as our proposal has been approved we can begin planning your course. Lesson dates, times and location are planned in consultation with you. In most cases, courses begin 2 weeks after the course proposal has been approved. However, if you would like to begin sooner, we are more than happy to oblige.
The fee for your custom-made course is thus dependent on the number of training hours required, and the type and intensity of your course.
Group courses Dutch
If you would like to offer one, or perhaps more, of your departments a group course in Dutch, we can put together a customised training programme for you. Our account managers are happy to work with you to discuss course content and the options available for the type of course and its duration.
