Learn Dutch at SNT
Stedelijke Nijverheids- en Taalleergangen (SNT), is a Dutch language school and foreign language school in Brugge / Bruges, Flanders, Belgium. From September till June we offer a full range of courses of Nederlands voor anderstaligen - i.e. Dutch for foreign speakers - for adults and young adults from 16 onwards who want to learn Dutch in day or evening classes. 12-16-year-olds can take Dutch courses at SNT under certain conditions as well.
If Dutch is not your mother tongue and you do like to learn it fast and cheap, then our Dutch language training is the very thing you need. In the Dutch (= Flemish) speaking part of Belgium knowledge of Dutch is more and more a prerequisite to get social housing, social benefits or a job.
In no time SNT will teach you to understand, read, speak and write Dutch for everyday situations, to start higher education or to increase your job opportunities in the labour market considerably. Did you know that an SNT B2 certificate Dutch (= level 8, Vantage) is proof of the required Dutch knowledge to enter all higher education programmes at any Flemish university or Flemish Hogeschool (university college). For your information: the average SNT student Dutch already finishes level 5 within 10 months.
You can learn Dutch at our centres in Bruges or Blankenberge. We offer Dutch courses for beginners and advanced learners. We follow the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages and the courses are classified accordingly to the levels A1, A2, B1, B2 and C1.
If you have never followed Dutch classes for foreign speakers before you should first report to the Agentschap Integratie en Inburgering, Baron Ruzettelaan 27-29, 8310 Brugge (Assebroek, 0032(0)2 701 78 10. In consultation with you you will be advised on the correct curriculum. You can then report to the SNT office for registration with their recommendation. Should you have followed a course yet or should you already know quite some Dutch, you can take a free level test at our centre. Our teachers will refer you to the appropriate level. Contact us by phone on 00 32 (0)50 44 11 40 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
