How do you learn a language?

It is nice to learn a language, but it can be ever nicer and more effective if you get the right study coaching. For that reason, TARTON wants to share with you the best way you can improve your vocabulary and what good grammar resources there are, as well as nice, handy websites and apps that can stimulate you to master Dutch at any time of the day.
VOCABULARY
  • The video ‘Woordjes leren als een baas’ from a team of PhD students from Radboud University in Nijmegen shows you the most effective way to learn words in a new language.
  • The dictionary from Interglot allows you to look up a translation from or into Dutch. You also get information about the type of word it is, and conjugations.

  • Are you a language volunteer, or are you as an organisation looking for assessment tools or suitable learning material for your employees? Then have a look to see if Stichting Lezen en Schrijven ('Reading and Writing Foundation') can help you with its resources.
