In this course you learn to handle a variety of straightforward situations such as shopping, eating out, talking about work and family, asking directions, telling about your work, place of birth, your last or next holiday ..etc....etc. All these items are embedded in dialogues and interviews, you work in pairs or threes, so you have to talk. The pronunciation and the articulation ( the first bridge to take) gets a lot of attention. Of course you will get all the grammar you need for this level, but speaking = 'doing the language’ is central. Survival is more than just an elementary course. The exercises in the online practice system of the Academy will help you to ‘digest’ and internalize all grammar concepts further and will shape your Dutch articulation step by step. survival- level 1.(A course on level A1-A2: CEFR)
