The UT Language Centre developed a special tour in the Rijksmuseum Twenthe, tailored to the needs of internationals learning Dutch. The first edition was held today for twelve UT students and employees. ‘This is a beautiful way to meet, to learn about the Dutch culture and history – and to learn new words.’
‘Dutch is fun’ is a relatively new course at the UT, where students can learn the basics of the Dutch language in five lessons. U-Today went to have a look at what this new course is all about and who participates in it.
‘Jullie zullen het wel druk hebben!’ is een veelgemaakte opmerking tijdens gesprekken en overleggen die ik in mijn hoedanigheid als hoofd talencentrum voer. Sinds begin dit jaar zijn we daar bezig met de implementatie van een aangescherpt taalbeleid, dat van Engels als instructietaal ook Engels als voertaal maakt.
The UT Language Centre is starting a new Dutch language course for complete beginners. It aims to be very practical and to offer a less time-consuming alternative to the existing ‘Dutch for beginners’ courses.
We work next to each other almost every day, but how well do we really know our colleagues? U-Today is curious about the personal stories of the UT support and management staff and we bring you these stories in this series ‘On the spot’. In this episode we introduce Molly Waite, an English teacher based at the TCP Language Centre.
New UT Language Policy – if approved by the University Council – will make English the official language of communication at the UT. We interviewed Katja Hunfeld, the Head of the University’s Language Centre (TCP), which has been actively involved in drawing up the policy, to discuss its possible consequences.
