Home language tests for secondary, primary and preschool education

There is a special test for parents who want to enrol their children in Dutch language education. This is an oral test split into two parts that takes about 30 minutes in all. In the first part you speak on your own, while the second part is a dialogue with the Dutch Language House staff member.

You are given a topic for each part and some time to prepare. The topics are real situations from a school. You will be told the result within one week.
