What, how & when
As an Afrikaans speaker you have specific advantages and struggles when learning Dutch. We tailor our courses to your needs.
Focus on good speaking and writing
Afrikaans speakers usually understand and read Dutch pretty well. But they struggle with Dutch grammar, pronunciation and the many words that look the same, but mean something different. We will help you get this right and share a good time together in our online classes with only Afrikaans speaking expats! So you become comfortable with Dutch in a relaxed way.

Beginner Course for Afrikaans speakers
What will you learn?
Grammar: In the grammar lessons of this course tailored to the needs of Afrikaans speakers, we offer you a strong foundation in the Dutch grammar on level A0-A1. These lessons differ from the regular courses, because we take your grammatical lacunae as point of departure. We aim at enlarging your grammatical understanding and your awareness of grammatical differences between the South African and Dutch language. For example, by focusing on essential topics like correct usage of the tenses, articles and demonstrative pronoun.
Speaking practice: Another important aspect that differentiates this course from the regular courses, is the level of conversation. The instructions and conversation lessons are in Dutch and on A1-A2 level. We thus expect you to understand that level of Dutch as well. During the conversation lessons we strongly focus on pronunciation, intonation and on so-called “valse vrienden”. We will talk about topics that are related to the workplace, leisure time, weather, travelling, emotions, giving your opinion and asking for information.
