Attending lessons from Monday to Friday allows students to progressively build up their knowledge of Dutch language by working regularly with different texts, applying new vocabulary in everyday conversation, working with grammatical structures, under the supervision of the professional and qualified teacher.

The goal of learning Dutch every day is to give students a possibility to practice the Dutch language and to feel comfortable with using the language outside of Dutch First School.

During the sessions, students will focus on studying texts, vocabulary and grammar. They will be gradually introduced to new topics and grammatical rules. Students will work on hands on use of vocabulary and grammar, and work with pronunciation as well as listening comprehension skills. Students will work in small groups on different projects in order to boost everyday use of Dutch.
