Beginners (level A1) 

Our courses for beginners are oriented to Dutch speakers. In these courses we make use of our own material ( "a reader") which contains an introduction and some explanation of the Spanish grammar in Dutch. If you have some knowledge of Dutch (at level A2+/B1) and you think you can manage to follow this course with Dutch as language of instruction, then you are welcome to join us. In the lessons we try to speak as much Spanish as possible anyhow. Interested? See the schedule of our beginner courses here.
