For the upcoming term we are going to start our classes remotely. After a few weeks we will see what the recommendations say and reconsider. You, of course, under these circumstances can opt out at any time if you do not enjoy the course, get ill or are otherwise not able to follow the course and have the course fee reimbursed for the rest of your lessons. We are trying to be as flexible as possible to accommodate your changing situation in these trying times.
Why join an online language course?
What does a lesson look like?
Once the lesson has started, you will see your teacher and all your fellow students on your screen and you will be able to hear them as well. Your teacher will have access to a number of tools to make the lesson as interactive as possible:
In addition to all this functionality the teacher will also make use of the tried and tested online learning platform KickstartNet which has all the learning materials, extra exercises, sound clips and videos.

Additional ways to learn Dutch, English or Chinese at home:
All in all, Zoom is the second best option to teach language courses - after in person classes, which we will restart as soon as possible based on government regulations.
"For me it is really good, it is a form to connect us. It feels almost the same as having a class at Kickstart." Juan
"Connecting on the app was very easy. The only difference is that it is less natural to ask questions, you are not sure if everyone can hear you. The breakout rooms were easy and I think it is a good thing. It is quite difficult to speak with 8 or 9 people, so this is easier with 3." Stephanie
"Connecting with Zoom for the first time was good, it was great to have a system to connect with people. The breakout rooms are really great, it is good to have little space between us." Lia
