Dutch First offers a variety of language courses throughout the year ranging from five-week standard courses and two-week intensive courses, to a complete One-Year Program. Our secret to effective teaching and student success begins with our small class size (6 - 14), which enables teachers to maximize their attention on the individual student while guaranteeing them a dynamic learning environment. All of our courses are conducted in the target/taught language.  

 

Dutch First follows the CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages) levels when teaching Dutch. A table is provided below to clarify how Dutch First courses align with the Dutch Language Plan and CEFR Levels.
