Welcome to Stellenbosch University
Dutch for beginners

Course 1 is a fully online self-study package. Every week you are granted access to new learning materials including short videos and exercises. This course begins on Monday 8 February. The course fee is R1500 for staff and students.


Course 2 is an online course that includes a weekly group lesson with your lecturer (who is a native speaker of Dutch) via the Zoom video conferencing platform. This group lesson will take place on Wednesday evenings from 6 pm to 7:30 pm. In this course you get access to tailor-made video clips and exercises to prepare you for the next lesson and to apply your acquired knowledge.  This course begins on Wednesday 10 February. The course fee is R2000 for staff and students. This course is capped at 18 participants.

For both courses an intermediate level of Afrikaans is required as the course is based on a contrastive approach​.​

At the end of each course participants take an online test. If you pass this test, you receive a "Nederlands voor beginners (A2 niveau)" short course certificate. 


Registration closes on Wednesday 3 February.
