Programme

CERAN Quality

Since 1975, CERAN has offered top-quality, tailored immersive language programmes to learners worldwide, so that you will be immersed in the Dutch language and culture from morning to night. Its intensive language programme uses its unique teaching methods to teach students to communicate with confidence. CERAN's teachers are all experienced, qualified native speakers specially trained to help students progress quickly and reach their language goals.

As well as group and private lessons, you will spend meals and breaks with CERAN's Dutch teachers - meaning your stay will be a complete immersion experience.

So that all language aspects are covered, CERAN offers different 45-minute modules which are included in all of the course options. These are:

  • General Dutch: you will learn to communicate in general day-to-day Dutch, and depending on your language level, Business Dutch may also feature.

  • Phonetics: you will learn to pronounce words correctly and how to express themselves using software that amplifies sounds, as well as specific techniques for speaking.

  • Multimedia sessions: an original way to focus on any gaps that you will need to work on. These sessions, supervised by a teacher, are particularly apt for work on spoken comprehension and vocabulary.

  • Personalised learning workshops: depending on your "learner profile", your teachers will help you better understand how to make the most of your learning style.

The training is completed with practice sessions outside of lessons, when your teachers will encourage you to speak Dutch and are there to help and correct you.

  • Lunchtime meals: themed conversations
  • Breaks: discussions in your target language, reading of French-speaking
  • Themed evenings: for 2 hours every evening students participate in activities such as intercultural communication, presentations, team management etc.
