Preparation for Dutch exams

Taalservice Leiden prepares students for taking the Dutch Civic Intergration Exam (Inburgeringsexamen and Basisexamen Inburgering when living abroad), for Staatsexamen NT2 and earning CNaVT certificates.

Lessons entail working directly with materials designed for preparation for the given exams. This will familiarize you with the types of exercises and tasks that the exams have in store for you; moreover, you will practice both spontaneous and prepared speaking, writing and listening. The teacher will prepare you for how the exam is structured, the type of exercises and grammar categories you can expect, and will give you invaluable advice on how to approach the particular exam.
