Fees & more

Course fees

TaalTafels has one fee per hour for all students, which is € 15,-, materials and tests excluded. The costs of a textbook and internet license are about € 40,-. Test to measure progress cost € 10,- per skill (reading, writing, listening, speaking) and are taken in consultation or at the request of the student. For DUO students, intake and progress tests are mandatory.

The costs per route, for example from A2 to B1, as stated in the overview on this site, indicate an average or target price based on 3 to 5 hours of self-study per week. The higher the level, the more self-study is needed. The duration of a trajectory has been tested in practice and is on average correct for students with a high learning profile. 

We work with continuous groups. Students can join an existing group at a comparable language level. The duration of the contract and the costs are adjusted accordingly. No rights can be derived from the information in the overview.

Contracts

The contracts from TaalTafels are based on the average duration of a trajectory, as indicated on this site. TaalTafels works with ongoing groups so students can always enroll and join a group at any time at their own level. For instance, if you start at the A0 level, you sign a contract from A0 to A2 for 120 hours. But if you start at the A1 level some weeks later, we will match the duration of the contract to the time needed to get to A2. This is the same for A2 to B1 or B1 to B2 level. 

At the end of trajectories, TaalTafels offers the possibility to take extra exam training classes with up to 4 students to prepare for the state exams. If needed we make an extra short contract for this. 

All contracts have a notice period of one month, regardless of the term.

Absence

If you’re absent once, you will have to pay for the lesson. If, however, you can’t come for weeks at a time, because of work, family or other reasons, TaalTafels has a special payment arrangement. You are accountable for the first week of absence, but you do not have to pay for any weeks after that. Good consultation about absence is required, because prolonged absence makes it difficult to keep up with the group.

Self-study and learning progress

Self-study is an important part of our courses and largely determines the progress of each student. Some students study a lot at home and learn faster than the group. Then it is possible at TaalTafels to switch to a higher group. Students who structurally have too little study time and need more time to finish the course properly, can switch to a lower level group. At our school there are also students who are in two different groups at the same time. The teachers decide what is possible based on level assessments and test results.

Your own effort is decisive for achieving a language level and also determines the duration and costs of a language course.
