Even though nearly all Dutch speak good English, learning some Dutch yourself is recommended. It will help you in everyday life, finding a job and Dutch people will appreciate that you have made the effort.
If you want official recognition of your Dutch language skills you will need to follow a course that offers exams within the NT2 structure.
Expat Center East Netherlands offers a Dutch Language course; “Dutch as a second language”.
In a small group you will get personal attention and coaching while learning Dutch.
A digital Dutch language method is used as an effective guide to learn a variety of practical language skills.
The course book also provides insights in the Dutch culture.
In addition to the book you will get extra information and exercises tailor-made for your own language level and background.
