Our Take Dutch courses are designed according to the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR). This is a reference framework developed by the Council of Europe that provides a European standard for language proficiency levels and for interpreting test scores. The results are valid across Europe.

Intake

Are you an absolute beginner? Then there is no need for an intake.

If you want to register for a Dutch course as a beginner+, an intermediate or advanced student (level A1+ and up), you must first register for an intake (a 20-minute call with one of our teachers), to make sure you will be placed in the right group. Your starting level will be defined in CEFR-terms. After the intake call, you can register straight away for the advised course . The intake is included in the course fee.

Certificate

At the end of the course, you will receive an attendance certificate with your starting and attainment level, on condition that you have attended at least 75% of the lessons. Attendance certificates are included in the course fee. This is not an official diploma, only government institutions can award those.
