Standard courses are ideal for those that have limited time during the week to attend courses due to work, school, or family obligations. 
Dutch First offers courses ranging from A1.1, designed for new beginners, to B2.4, targeted for those with advanced experience with the Dutch language.

Our standard courses have lessons twice a week. Participants get homework and other exercises to complete outside of class. Courses are taught in a way that gives students the opportunity to improve their reading, writing, listening, and speaking skills by working in groups as well as individually.

A standard course has 8 up to 32 lessons. Sessions are held twice a week and each session consists of 3 lesson hours (each of 45 minutes).

Standard courses are offered during the following hours:

  • Morning course: 9:15 - 11:30
  • Daytime course: 11:45 - 14:00
  • Evening course: 17:00 - 19:15 and 19:30 - 21:45
