Hi there guys,

I am currently looking, as an external candidate, to study a Dutch A-Level within any institute in England or Scotland. I have had no looking in finding a secondary school whereby a Dutch A-Level is taught. In fact, I cannot find a Dutch teacher anywhere;
If anyone know of a secondary school or centre whereby there is such a Dutch teacher and/or the possibility of an A-Level please reply to this post!

Thank you for any help or advice you can give me!

The Dutch Language School in Oxford seems to offer quite a few options

My sister did Dutch A-level, but she could not find an official teacher, the only reason she could do it was because we are Dutch and so had an advantage :/

Try the Oxford school as thaititootoo suggested but from personal experience finding a teacher for this language is virtually impossible - maybe you're better off finding a native speaker online and try to converse with them, my sister and I could not find a single official teacher :/

She did an A-Level, with which school?
The problem with Oxford School is the price and considering I could learn Dutch on my own and then in fact take the exams for £70 compared to their price is shocking.
I have contacted OCR who provide the Dutch exams and they have told me that in the year of 2012 and the year of 2013 there were and will be schools offering the A-Level, thus it is doable; I just need to find where.

Thanks anyway for your help!

As far as I can remember Brass House located in the West Midlands offers Dutch language, it would perhaps be worthwhile looking over their website http://brasshouse.birmingham.gov.uk/

Hello Arron,

I've read your thread, and may be I can help you. My name is Safa, I am Dutch, but live in the UK. I have been working as a translator English - Dutch for many years and have also taught the Dutch language in the Netherlands, both adults and children. I can offer private tuition. If you are interested, we can discuss how etc.

kind regards,

Safa

Are you currently at a school? Cos I took Dutch A level (many years ago, mind), of course my school didn't offer it but I just asked them if it would be okay to sit it and they said yeah, I didn't have to pay anything for that. Although, I suppose your school must also offer other OCR exams in order to do that.

I took the Dutch Language School course for the AS bit. I think it's alright but you're mostly self teaching - they just send you materials, and then you do some assignments which they mark and give feedback on. Maybe just get the textbook - it was Nederlands voor Gevorderden!
