Dutch as a Second Language at work



Are you working as a cleaner, in the agricultural sector or in health care? Do you have employees from abroad? In this case, we advise you to take a course in Dutch at work.  We have teachers specialized in these branches. They have an affinity with the language used and can better meet the language-learning needs of these employees.

In order to fit lessons to work practice, we think it is important that the Dutch language teacher and department head have regular contact with each other. In this way the teacher will get practical insight into work situations crucial to the employees, and the head of department will be able to keep track of the progress made by employees.


At Conrado you can prepare for four different target levels: A1, A2, B1 and B2. If your employees have reached level A2, they can apply for the the ‘inburgerings’-exam. B1 is the target level for the State Exam Dutch as a Second Language (NT2) Program I and B2 is the target level for State Exam Dutch as a Second Language (NT2) Program II. Even if your employees do not sit for any official exam, they will still receive an official participation certificate from us after completing the course.

Do your employees wish to reach higher level? We can help you to achieve this. Please contact Conrado for a free consultation.

Course Structure

During the course, we will be working with you on your general language skills as well as any specific language skills needed for your area of work in both reading and writing. Role-playing will also be used as a tool to allow you to practice your speaking skills in specific professional situations.

Along with the regular courses, we offer E-learning. Every student receives a user name and password to log into Conrado’s website to practice their language skills at home. This allows both teacher and student to keep up-to-date on the latest scores for different learning skills. At the end of the course the student will receive a full report of scores achieved.

Duration and prices

We offer courses for your employees starting at a minimum of two hours a week depending on when they are available for group lessons. They will be able to significantly improve their language skills in only a few weeks and they can put what they have learned into practice directly. If you would like to have up to five employees in a group with basically the same starting level, we can offer you a competitive price.
