Test your level
Most people have being in the Netherlands after a while already some understanding and feeling about the Dutch language.
The test gives an impression where your stand. But.. a test is just a test, you (can) do it in your own pace, it’s not very communicative, a test is more brainwork, it doesn’t test your ‘doing’ the language. Some people know already a considerable amounts of the Dutch language, but their doing/talking/responding skills are behind. Logical passive knowledge is easier to get than active …..
For that reason a short telephone conversation can clarify and support the test you have done online.
A general remark about the different levels, and your ‘going’ from one level to a higher level. The courses are building up in gradual way. And ‘your learning= doing a language’has a lot to do with increasing your confidence, fluency, and your being on ease. So sometimes it’s better to go one level down then the test tells you theoretically or to a level 2 course twice (rare) or to do the level 3 course more than once, dit komt vaker voor. It looks like failing, it’s not. The course are just a lesson series of 10 X 1,5 hour , that a limited time period, so taking more time for growing into more confidence, fluency can be a wise decision, which you always take in overleg met de trainer.
