Dutch as a foreign language
Dutch as a second language
Totaal in Taal teaches Dutch as a Second Language in both group courses and private classes. We cater to your individual needs and provide lots of practice with real-life situations. Our aim is to create a safe learning environment where you can speak and learn without inhibitions. This includes taking our students to the museum and making sure our practice exercises are tailored to their living and working environments.
Our courses cover the following areas:
- Dutch in the workplace
- Handling cultural differences and similarities
- Building your vocabulary
- Guidelines on writing clearly
- Pronunciation of Dutch sounds
- Learning Dutch through music, art and film
In the advanced level classes, you will also spend time on refining your writing style and fine-tuning a text until it is clear and concise.
Our courses also promote getting to know one another’s culture. In Hungary, for instance, we provided a workshop on Dutch games and on adapting fairy tales from various countries for the screen. Our prime concern is that our students enjoy our classes and are inspired to develop their language skills, from speaking their first words to developing a fluent style of writing.
