Dutch: Introductory

COURSE

Course description

Did you know that Dutch is not spoken just in the Netherlands? It is actually the most spoken language in Belgium and the official language of Suriname. In addition, a modified form of Dutch is one of the official languages in South Africa. This introductory conversation course will familiarize you with the pronunciation of Dutch and will introduce basic vocabulary and grammar. The emphasis will be on understanding the spoken language and simple texts, as well as engaging in basic conversation in Dutch.
