Courses for teachers

Improving professionalism of teachers of Dutch outside the Dutch language area is one of the priorities of the Nederlandse Taalunie (Dutch language Union). For the quality, status and the independance of the Dutch programmes at universities abroad it is important that teachers are given the opportunity to attend training courses in order to improve their educational skills.

The Nederlandse Taalunie has set up a series of courses especially for foreign teachers of Dutch. Teachers can apply for these courses regardless their native language. The course can take place abroad on location but also within the Dutch language area. The themes of these courses vary from language acquisition to working with authentic materials to didactics to modern literature to testing (exams) and skills.
