This is a course in which you are mainly in charge yourself. You prepare the lessons ( in advance), do the exercises and other tasks, written and spoken etc. Once a week there is a meeting with the teacher and fellow students for questions, remarks and conversations about designated themes.
On this high level your talents and learning conditions will be clearly reflected. You will eventually speak Dutch on the level as your native language. This involves also a profound understanding of the conventions of the cultural environment and society.
You are able to use Dutch like your native language and are completely self-confident; you are also likely to find linguistic and creative solutions in all circumstances. You are aware of a variation of means to express yourself freely, to ask for further details, to agree or disagree on different topics and express a personal and well-founded opinion. You can read any newspaper, whatever articles in Wikipedia or a wide range of books; you can watch and understand any discussion-programs on television, listen to speech on the radio, write letters and emails about all kinds of themes. You are confident in your present performance and you can in fact participate completely in a Dutch-spoken environment.
OnlineLingoAcademy helps you to speak and trains your skills and knowledge by a continuous dialog. You are self-confident in using Dutch and you abstain entirely from translating your native language into Dutch.
