The pre-IBDP program is aimed students aged between roughly 11 and 16 who are native Dutch/Flemish speakers. Students may start the program in any suitable year. The program is an excellent preparation for the students’ final two exam years of IB Dutch A. It also complies with the MYP e-assessments. The main objective is that students feel secure and confident in their command of the Dutch language, and that they develop skills for reading and analysing literary texts. The pre-IBDP program also fits students who do not visit an IB-school, but who like to study Dutch from a broad and international perspective.
