Discover (the) Dutch: Dutch Language and Culture (VU Amsterdam Summer School)

Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam

Certificate / Diploma Summer course Amsterdam

Course description

Qualification Certificate
Field of study Humanities, social sciences, communication and arts
Course summary Dive head-first into Dutch society! Enjoy a crash-course primer in basic Dutch and an interactive study of Dutch culture in an international context. Featuring a special visit to the Rijksmuseum.
Course description The course is very interactive in nature. Part of the lessons will take place in our state of the art digital language lab. You will work on your speaking, pronunciation, listening, reading and writing skills, including vocabulary and grammar. During classes we will work with video, audio and computer software. And of course, you will practice a lot in small groups, which is a fun and effective way to try your newly learnt sentences. 'Discover (the) Dutch' is not only a language course, however. You will also learn about Dutch culture and society. In this part of the course you will explore some of the highlights of Dutch history and culture: what was so special about that famous Dutch 'Golden Age' and have the Dutch really always battled against the water? We will also discuss the stereotypes that exist about the Netherlands and Dutch culture and place them within a historical context. Some of the stereotypes you may have before starting the course, considering the tolerant and liberal attitude towards drugs, sexuality and immigration in the Netherlands, might be in need of some serious revaluation afterwards! Part of the course will definitely be a visit to the famous 'Rijksmus
