Navigating Dutch Study Requirements as an Expat Child: Our Support for a Smooth Transition

Imagine this: you’re a teenager living abroad, and you’re set on studying in the Netherlands by the time you turn 18. What do you need to know? What about the entrance exams some universities require? How can you prepare yourself and ensure your Dutch skills are up to par not only for engaging conversations with Dutch peers but also for grasping complex textbook passages?

At Dutch For Kids, we’re here to assist you and guide you through this journey, so you can effortlessly pass the university or college entrance exam and embark on your studies in the Netherlands with confidence.

For expat children planning to study in the Netherlands, transitioning to the Dutch education system can be challenging. That’s why, at Dutch For Kids, we’ve developed a program specifically aimed at preparing these students for their academic journey in the Netherlands. Whether you’re already in the Netherlands or still living abroad, our online Dutch lessons are tailored to prepare you for your arrival at a Dutch-speaking university.

An essential aspect of this preparation is taking a language test, which some colleges and universities require. The purpose of this test is to ensure that students are proficient enough in the Dutch language to succeed in their studies. At Dutch For Kids, we help our students prepare for this language test through our online Dutch lessons.

During these lessons, we focus on various aspects of the language crucial for academic success, including grammar, writing skills, listening comprehension, speaking proficiency, and reading comprehension.

  • Grammar: We assess students’ knowledge of grammar, including verb conjugation, tense usage, and sentence structure.
  • Writing Skills: We assist students in composing arguments on various topics and articulating clear opinions on texts.
  • Listening Comprehension: We practice listening comprehension by answering questions about excerpts we listen to together.
  • Speaking Proficiency: Students learn to express their viewpoints clearly in monologues and practice engaging in conversations on various topics.
  • Reading Comprehension: Together, we read informative, reflective, and argumentative texts, answering questions to expand students’ vocabulary and improve their targeted reading skills.

Through this comprehensive preparation, we empower expat children to confidently and well-preparedly transition to higher education in the Netherlands. Want to learn more about how we can assist you on your academic journey in the Netherlands?
