Integration Exam mandatory language test in order to get a Provisional Residence Permit at the Dutch Embassy in Singapore this is the course you need to prepare yourself These are 14 lessons of 2 hours each comprising of intensive language training sessions plus practice sessions to achieve basic knowledge of Dutch society plus perfecting your read aloud skills These private lessons are in principle conducted on a one to one basis but in case our available slots for new MVV students would suddenly become very limited 1 or 2 new students may join you We reserve the right to do so This will not influence the effectiveness of your MVV training course at least not in any negative way In fact group lessons are actually more effective since you can compare notes and even organise extra training sessions with each other if you would like to do so in between the lessons There is yet another positive aspect it is our experience that our MVV group participants usually become good friends mentally supporting each other even after the Civic Integration Exam No wonder you all share the same challenging goal moving to the Netherlands soon When you are facing such a drastic change in your life it s good to have a new friend who can think along with you and even help you if needed We will focus on 32 real time trial exams The structure and content of all of our exams are very similar to the real Civic Integration Exam at the Dutch Embassy Therefore our many trial exams are an excellent tool to determine if you are actually ready to sit for your real exam And if not you can always decide to take a few extra lessons We will advise which moment is most suitable for you to call the Dutch Embassy and book your examination date We are glad to announce that all of our MVV course participants 203 in total so far until the 10th of January 2014 have passed the Civic Integration Exam Time and again their score was at least twice the required minimum amount of points We

longer possible to pass the Integration Exam Inburgeringsexamen in Dutch at the Dutch Embassy here This used to be possible but it has been abandoned quite some time ago already since the implication is that a sealed laptop has to be flown in to the Dutch Embassy in Singapore directly from The Netherlands Due to all cost involved Dutch Embassies worldwide are supposed to cut operating cost as much as possible due to the economic crisis in The Netherlands and partly because of security risks possible fraud the option of taking the normal Inburgeringsexamen full Integration Exam abroad has been eliminated The best way to get your Dutch passport is to prepare yourself for the Dutch NT2 State Exam I which is for most Asians the preferred alternative for the since it means that they only need to focus on the Dutch language and no longer on Social Studies Please note that the normal Integration Exam the full Inburgeringsexamen for PR or Naturalisation is very different from the Civic Integration Exam this Basisexamen Inburgering in Dutch is for a Provisional Residence Permit MVV only This Basisexam Inburgering in order to get an MVV Basisexamen Inburgering voor de TEV procedure Toegang En Verblijf Important this comprehensive Integration Exam required NT2 proficiency level A2 takes a couple of hours to complete and is therefore very different from the much simpler Civic Integration Exam for MVV required NT2 proficiency level A1 which MVV exam only takes less than one hour to complete The full fledged Integration Exam comprises of a NT2 language test plus a knowledge test regarding Dutch Society During private one to one sessions we will intensively focus on both subjects NT2 language training targeted private lessons to reach NT2 proficiency level A2 and comprehensive social studies specially developed by Dutch social science professionals to effectively train foreigners so that they will achieve adequate knowledge of Dutch society These social studies are the second mandatory part of the Dutch naturalisation test For this specific purpose we have all necessary up to date official teaching aids plus NT2 State Exams of previous years available here in Singapore This means that you can fully prepare yourself with us and take your official Naturalisation Test at the Dutch Embassy here in Singapore During this intensive course we will be focusing on all four elements reading writing listening and conversational skills Course duration This totally depends on the time you can make available for private lessons and study plus your individual capabilities and learning pace Ideally you will need at least 6 months to prepare yourself adequately with intensive one to one sessions at least twice per week 2 x 2 4 hours per week but lessons 3 times per week 3 x 2 6 hours per week would actually be better Please note that this is a quite exacting study program It all depends on your individual capabilities and learning pace in terms of comprehension memorising information You will need to master both the Dutch language NT2 level A2 in every aspect reading writing listening speaking plus a fair bit of knowledge about Dutch society Therefore the more time you can make available for your private lessons the better it will be Please keep in mind that the absolute minimum is 4 hours of lessons per week Next to these private sessions you will need to study very hard at least 3 hours every day to be successful in the end Rates 1 S 100 per private lesson of 2 hours please note that we do not work with separate payments per

received more and more requests from Dutch and Belgian parents residing in Singapore to provide Dutch language courses for their children The majority of these children are attending International Schools in Singapore such as the United World College German European School Hollandse School Tanglin Trust School and EtonHouse The age of our young course participants ranges from 9 to 15 years At the end of the year 2003 we have started with Dutch Language Courses specially designed for foreign children with Dutch roots These kids are usually brought up with the English language as their mother tongue and therefore don t speak any Dutch We also conduct specific enrichment lessons for children who actually do speak a fair bit of Dutch but without sufficient knowledge of spelling grammar and the proper meaning of proverbs These students need additional tuition or remedial teaching in order to improve on their grammar spelling and vocabulary We provide different targeted language courses for all of these pupils Remedial teaching Some parents request for remedial teaching to make sure their child will overcome arrears in terms of Dutch grammar spelling reading skills vocabulary and the meaning of proverbs while attending lessons at the HSL Hollandse School GESS German European School or UWC United World College in Singapore We are using special educational software and other dedicated teaching aids to effectively coach these pupils Most of the parents are looking for a professional language course for their children in such way that their kids will gradually develop great interest in the Dutch language Primarily learning Dutch must be fun We will always make sure that this is the case Starting from there it is much easier to keep children motivated to focus on learning the Dutch language It is a phased process of building up trust and fellowship between the teacher and the young student Exciting and versatile interactive Dutch learning programme for your child Like we said our teaching programme has been developed in close co operation with Dutch Primary Education professionals and this programme is based on three crucial pillars
