Individual lessons and courses for a special group.

Individual lessons. In the paragraph about the group lessons I said: the nice thing about being in a group is that you’re automatically stimulating and encouraging by your sparring partners. In a 1 to one session it’s you and your trainer, who speaks very well Dutch, so it’s not a tantamount situations. And that has its negative points and pro’s. Negative can be the pressure of somebody who is much better than you. The pro is you have a private tutor and he/she can totally adapt to your ‘Dutch language needs’ only. Your course can be 100% tailor made as we said, that’s one of the differences with a group course. If you have already a base of Dutch and you have your reason to do a 1-to one learning process, e.g. You have demanding agenda, you want to polis hand improve your Dutch skills as quick as possible etc. Yes then 1-to one lessons can be a good strategy, even when they’re expansive. Courses for a special group. For example a group of colleagues, you are a group bartenders or chiropractioners and you can’t participate in one of the regular evening courses.

Group lessons at the evening School. ( 4 levels)

Believe me (or not) group lessons are the best. Why? Well you need sparring partners to practice, to do, to speak with. And preferably not all of them should be at a higher level as yourself. A groups has never participants with exactly the same level. A (bit of) differentiation is good, everybody is (always) learning from each other. Another thing which is so great from group lessons, you will automatically stimulate and encourage each other.

In-company lessons

Your company is offering to you and your fellow employees, a Dutch course on the work spot. That’s great. It’s probably a group course and it’s organized not very differently from the open courses at the School. What you will miss is new ‘faces’ and yes in this frame your work can pull on you.

Courses explained.

Level 1, The Survival course.

In this course you learn to handle a variety of straightforward situations such as shopping, eating out, talking about work and family, asking directions, telling about your work, place of birth, your last or next holiday ..etc....etc. All these items are embedded in dialogues and interviews, you work in pairs or threes, so you have to talk. The pronunciation and the articulation ( the first bridge to take) gets a lot of attention. Of course you will get all the grammar you need for this level, but speaking = 'doing the language’ is central. Survival is more than just an elementary course. The exercises in the online practice system of the Academy will help you to ‘digest’ and internalize all grammar concepts further and will shape your Dutch articulation step by step. survival- level 1.(A course on level A1-A2: CEFR)
