Dutch Language and Culture in secondary education – private

LanguageOne Perth’s programme for Dutch-language students in classes 1 to 6 of secondary education enables admission to Dutch, Flemish and international education and preparation for Dutch exams. The classes are offered privately and are fully tailored to the student’s level.

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.

Our students take 1 or 2 hours per week of private classes before or after school, either at the student’s home, in the day school or at the Quintilian School. We offer a thematic curriculum distributed across so-called units. The students also get 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 work on their literary skills around the theme of World War II. They study various narrative aspects and language tools and apply these to passages from the novel De aanslag. Their written ability will be assessed. By keeping a vlog about their reading experiences the students also put their oral language skills into practice.

We can prepare our students for (final) examinations. We offer coaching for sitting the CNaVT examination, the Dutch A Literature IB Diploma Programme or the Australian ATAR (Australian Tertiary Admission Rank).
