NT2-II exam

NT2, also known as Nederlands als tweede taal, is the official State exam for Dutch as a second language. With a diploma NT2, you can show that you are proficient in Dutch for working or studying in the Netherlands. You can also use it for integration and for applying for naturalization (a Dutch passport), or a permanent residence. There are two examination programs included: Program I (at European language level B1) and Program II (at European language level B2, which is the highest Dutch exam level). The exam is conducted by the Dutch government and consists of four modules: reading, listening, writing and speaking.

The training course includes all the four modules in the exam: The first course starting in September trains for the Speaking and Listening modules; the second course starting in January trains for the Reading and Writing modules. Each course contains 10 sessions of 2 hours per week. After the training course, you are expected to pass NT2, program II exam and reach B2 language level.

The cost is one Gold Membership per course (2 modules), which is still considerably cheaper compared to other NT2 training courses. If you buy a Gold Membership, you have the option to take 3 language courses or one NT2-II exam training course. Our most experienced and professional teacher, as well as the small class scale assures you the best quality of the course. You will also get free customized training materials by CSA for the NT2-II exam.

Note: The cost of payment does not include the NT2-II exam fee. You are supposed to sign up for the exam by yourself. Moreover, you are expected to bring your own laptop and preferably also a Dutch dictionary with you (also allowed in the official exam), in order to get the best training at your own space in class.
