How do the Dutch live? What is their country like? What are their views and how have their views changed over the years? How is the country governed? These and many other topics are dealt with in the 45 texts contained in the Second Round Book. The texts include the 1200 words covered in the beginners' course together with some 1700 new words. The lessons are devoted to discussing the subjects presented in the texts. Listening and speaking proficiency is further developed and simple writing assignments have to be done.

COVID-19 measures

From September onwards we will offer more and more courses in two formats: groups with lessons at the Delft campus and groups with online lessons (twice a day online conversation lessons of about 45 minutes in small groups of max. 9 people). The groups with lessons on campus are, of course, subject to changes in Corona measures. Because we want to ensure the safety and health of our teachers and students, we will slowly expand the face-to-face courses. At available course dates you can see the courses that are offered online and on campus.

The final exams for all courses will take place on campus again from September onwards. If you cannot sit the final test at the TU Delft campus in Delft, we offer the possibility to take the exam online. The costs for the online exam are €30,-. For more information you can contact our office.
