Dutch Language and Culture in secondary education – after-school

LanguageOne Doha’s programme for Dutch-language students in secondary education enables admission to Dutch, Flemish and international education and preparation for Dutch exams.

LanguageOne has developed a new Dutch programme that follows the curricular requirements of the International Baccalaureate® (IB), which meets the core objectives of the Dutch Ministry of Education, Culture and Science and the Reference Levels for language. Our approach mainly emphasises learning to use the Dutch language. Your children will carry out meaningful language and culture-related tasks in a way that resonates and connects with their world and that will facilitate possible repatriation to the Netherlands or Flanders.

After day school, our students take 2.5 hours per week of themed classes, distributed across so-called units, at Compass International School Doha. They are also given a homework assignment of at least one hour. A unit is a set of lessons about a specific theme that will be treated over the course of a number of weeks. The units cover various skills such as reading, writing, speaking and listening around a (cultural) theme. Each unit is rounded off with an assessment.

In practice: Unit ‘We are all migrants’
Our students learn about the differences between people, where everyone is from and what they as human beings represent. The subject of migration is covered, with our students cooperating on various assignments. Your children will research World War II and discuss the subject with classmates.

Exams
Once they have acquired a sufficient grasp of the Dutch language, we help our students prepare for the CNaVT-examination or the Dutch A Literature IB Diploma Programme.
