Sambhav : Much Dutch grammar in B2, as well as new vocabulary. I think that the B2 class is very well structured. In each class we can exercise with speaking, reading, writing and grammar. That’s what I like most.
However, I don’t like to have class on Saturday morning. And I like to have online class, but I prefer class on location. I am more motivated to study when we have class on location.
Besides, I think that we could have more intermediate tests in B2. A test may be usefull for all of us to review what we did. In four months we have two verb tests only and then the B2 tests at the end.
In conclusion, I use my Dutch in general situations, like in the supermarket or some other shop. I don’t use it at work yet. I don’t need Dutch for my job but I think that when my Dutch becomes better, I ‘ll have a better chance for the next job in the Netherlands.
B2 September-December 2021 likes much Dutch grammar in class
Fiorella: In the B2 course I learn the details of Dutch grammar which help me to improve my writing and speaking skills. In class, I like the active interaction during speaking exercises with my fellow students and with my teacher.
I am really happy with the online class because that makes it easier to follow class on Saturday morning – we have no travel time. Howevver I think 9:15 is early on Saturday morning and I don’t like it, but I have got used to it already.
In addition, I would like continuing learning the small Dutch grammar details that we are learning now. Maybe some extra exercises with special rules or frequent Dutch expressions and vocabulary, so that I can sound more natural.
To conclude, I am very happy to use my Dutch skills talking to my partner and my collegues. At work I send Dutch emails as well. Moreover, I am pretty sure that I have more chance promotion in my actual job or a better chance when I want to apply for another job. A B2 certificate is a big advantage on your resume!
I would not have spoken Dutch within a year without my teacher Margreet Kwakernaak
Shree: When somebody tells me that I speak well for somebody who has been studying less than a year than I tell that this would not have been the case without my teacher Margreet Kwakernaak.After all I got my job because I speak Dutch! I speak Dutch with my partner and with my clients at work.
In this B2 course I mainly learn grammar and new vocabalary. I like to do more speaking exercises with my fellow students, because I think it helps a lot to improve my Dutch. However, I think the class should be on location, I miss that interaction in the classroom.
Unfortunately I don’t like reading and having to tell what I read in my own words. That’s because it’s really difficult for me , as I started studying Dutch less than a year ago.
Everything is very well organized
Eniko: I this Dutch B2 class I learn to give a presentation, to compare, to be able to argue someting, to retell something , to describe and to exchange experiences. By better communication I have better contacts with Dutchmen now, they are more open when you speak the language. Besides, I understand more of culture and habits.
I am very happy with the online classes. In the beginning, I was a bit afraid, because I wondered how I would handle it, but it is going very well. The communication, the asking of questions, the materials, everything is very well organized.
I like that I can exercise a lot of grammar
Zsuzsanna : Firstly I like that I can exercise a lot of grammar and that I get help with the speaking assignments. However, I dont’ like that there are sometimes some changes in the schedule. That my be confusing.
Secondly, I learn what to expect in the Staatsexamen NT2 Programma II and what I have to train additionally. Fortunately, I don’t miss anything in class.
All in all, my target is not to get a promotion or a new job, but I consider getting an education in higher professional education. To be admitted, I need the NT2 diploma.
