The course NT2 prepares you for your civic integration exam at level A2. Are you unable to read and write in your mother tongue and/or unfamiliar with the Latin alphabet? Literacy training.

Do you want to do a course and work as well? We can help you by putting you in contact with a consultant of the employment agency we work with. Would you like to do a secondary vocational education (MBO)/vocational education while taking or taking a course or after you complete one? Check NT2 Entrance on our page.


What will you learn?

In this course you will learn the basics of Dutch. You will learn to read, write, and speak in Dutch as well as learn to listen to it. If your command of the Dutch language is good enough, you can go on to do this course at proficiency level B1 or B2. At the end of the course you can take the State Exam for programme 1 or programme 2.

If you do our exam training and you fail your civic integration exam the first time, we offer free training until you take it the second time. If you have more trouble learning Dutch, we offer personal coaching for extra practice. We help you with your application for the civic integration exam.
