Proof of Dutch knowledge for training as a social interpreter

Would you like to start training as a social interpreter? Then you need Dutch level B2.

Which test are you taking at the Huis van het Nederlands?

The test consists of two parts: listening and speaking. Each part takes about one hour. You start with listening. This part is done on the computer. If this part is too difficult, the test will stop there and you will not have passed. If the listening test goes well, an appointment will be made for the speaking test at a later date.
