EFFECTIVE

 

 

The Delft method is Boom NT2’s most popular teaching method and it very suitable for self-study. It is an interactive method that is tailored to your goals: understanding, speaking, writing and reading Dutch.

 

The method was developed thirty years ago at Delft University. While its approach may be unconventional, it is highly effective. The clear, step-by-step structure allows students of all educational backgrounds to get started at the level they prefer. Native language support is available in many languages. The learning process is neatly structured and the native language support brings the learning goals within reach.

 

How does the method work?
Each course contains roughly 43 lessons. Each lesson takes you through the following steps:
• Listening to, reading, reciting, understanding and learning the text
• Doing the listening exercises to train your ear
• Taking the test to check your text comprehension
• Completing the exercises to see if you understand what you have learned
