Do I need to speak English?
No, you do not need to speak English. If you start at A0 it is helpful to have some basic knowledge of English to communicate with the teacher. Students who speak Hungarian are also at the right place, because the teacher speaks Hungarian too.

What does ERK/CEF mean?
CEF is the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (in Dutch: ERK). There are six reference levels (A1, A2, B1, B2, C1 and C2) and five language skills (reading, writing, listening, speaking/conversations). The teaching methods we use at Lokaal Nederlands are all based on the CEF.

Does Lokaal Nederlands offer integration courses?
The courses at Lokaal Nederlands focus on learning the Dutch language. We can help you to reach the required level for the Integration Examination for immigrants. We also teach about the Dutch culture and society, but we do not offer specific integration courses (yet).

Can Lokaal Nederlands help me to prepare for the Staatsexamen NT2 (State Examination Dutch as second language NT2)?

Yes, that is possible. For the Staatsexamen NT2 program I level B1 is required. For program II level B2 is required. We offer courses on these levels. However, during the group lessons we do not practice exam training for the Staatsexamen, because these are general lessons.

Does Lokaal Nederlands accept a DUO loan?
No, Lokaal Nederlands does not accept a DUO loan.
