Boost Your Dutch Schort Course: 15 Essential Dutch Language Principles

Give yourself a head start learning Dutch through this innovative new approach.

Boost Your Dutch has been specifically developed to help internationals overcome the hurdles of getting to grips with the Dutch language. The Boost Your Dutch approach takes advantage of the extensive skill set & life experiences of internationals. The aim is to provide a general understanding of 15 basic elements of the Dutch language and how to use them in practice.

Included are topics, such as: easy ways to make Dutch sentences, how to conjugate verbs, singular & plural nouns, using different types of pronouns, adding articles, adjectives and prepositions.

To help participants conquer their fear of speaking Dutch in practice, special attention is given to pronunciation and difficult Dutch vowel combinations, such as: eu, ui, oe and ij
