Participation in Dutch society begins with learning the language. If you speak the language, you can have a conversation with your friends, neighbors and teachers. You can also read the newspaper and do your shopping. Mastering the language will improve your career prospects and it will allow you to pursue studies. NVA's language courses will help you to achieve your goals.
Theory and Practice Go Together
NVA's language courses will help you to improve your language skills and will prepare you for either the integration exam or State Exam.
Our classes are taught by experienced and qualified teachers who work with well trained, volunteer language coaches. These coaches provide students with additional support both during and outside of class. This way, you will have numerous opportunities to both learn about the language and to practice it. The combination of our expertise and your commitment will ensure that you reach your desired language level quickly.
Start at Your Level
You want to take the course that best suits your needs and language level. Therefore, after registration, you will be invited for an interview at which time we will determine your language level and discuss your needs and goals. We customize our lessons to meet your needs and goals. Depending on your language level, you will attend class 4 times per week. Each class consists of a maximum of 12 students and lasts for 2,5 hours.
