This distance learning home study course is designed to prepare you for your GCSE Dutch examinations in 2018 and is aimed at achieving a top grade.

The GCSE Dutch exam can be sat for the last time in 2018.

As well as preparing you for the GCSE examinations, this course also revises key areas of the Dutch grammar in preparation for the exams. This course is focused on preparing you for all 4 examinations: reading, writing, listening, and speaking.

  • The examination procedures, instructions, formats, and exam practise, etc.
  • Audio CDs with listening exercises.

Course structure:

This course is designed to be completed in one academic year where each lesson takes between one and two hours of study to complete. You may study at your own pace and send in your homework assignments when you are ready. The course is delivered in three parts. Part 2 and part 3 will be delivered on completion of the preceding part.

We usually recommend that students begin this course in the autumn, say in September or October, to prepare for exams the following summer. However, you may start any time from the middle of August until the beginning of December. The very latest starting date is the second week of December provided you have a very good elementary level in Dutch and are prepared to complete 2 lessons per week.

This course is suitable for adults and children from the age of about 14.

This GCSE Dutch course is designed to prepare students for the GCSE Dutch exams set by the OCR examination board (codes A801, A802, A803, & A804).

The cost of enrolling for the exams and any mock exams are not included with this course.
