Below you will find answers to the most common questions related to the Dutch courses.

The most common questions:

Do you issue a certificate at the end of the course?

We cannot issue certificates, as we are not a school. Meerhoven Internationals Platform is a volunteer organization which helps internationals in the neighborhood to socialize and integrate. The courses are given though by professional teachers.

Can I follow a trial class?

Yes, you can follow one try-out lesson.

Are the books included in the fee?

No, you should purchase the books yourself online or in the bookstores. The course is based on Contact-1 and Contact-2 books.

What is the tuition fee?

The tuition fee is EUR 260 for 16 lessons, 2,5 hours each.

How many students are in one group?

The classes are usually around 8 to 12 people.

What is my level?

For beginning students it is better not to overestimate their level. It is easier to move up a class than move down, so when in doubt subscribe to a lower level and you can always switch groups later on.
