The CNaVT Exam

General Information

The CNaVT exam is the official, international exam of Dutch as a Foreign Language for learners of Dutch all over the world. The Catholic University of Leuven organises the exam.

The Dutch Language Union has commissioned this collaboration. If you have a certificate for the level A2 or higher, you don't have to take the Dutch part of the "Inburgeringsexamen or Naturalisatietoets". (But you still have to take the test on your knowledge of Holland: "Kennis Nederlandse Maatschappij or KNM" and ONA "Oriƫntatie op de Nederlandse Arbeidsmarkt". Those tests you can prepare with my colleague Jack, in Hilversum, if you wish).

I, personally, like this test better than most other tests, because it is a more practical test. By passing an exam, a language learner proves that he or she has mastered enough Dutch to be able to speak it, listen, read and write in certain contexts. People learn Dutch for a variety of reasons: to go on holiday in the Netherlands or Belgium for example. Or to study, live or work in a Dutch-speaking environment. For this reason the CNaVT has developed different profile exams. The language learner can choose which profile (exam) suits his or her needs best.

Where, when, how and how much?
