De Eerste Steen organizes individual and group courses in the
Croatian language. The teachers are college-taught and have several
years of experience in teaching.
For the Croatian lessons the foundation uses the so-called 'natural
approach'. Students read and listen to short, interesting texts
and make themselves familiar with the basic vocabulary. The grammar
is also acquired in that way.
Advanced students can improve their knowledge of the language.
On the higher levels the contents of the lessons are depending
on the objects and wishes of the students.
Advisor for the teaching method is drs. Ineke de Bakker, teacher
of Dutch as a Second Language at the Amsterdam University.
