Hogeschooltaal is an online learning and practice program through which students learn spelling and grammar for Dutch and/or English at the beginning and advanced levels of higher education. In addition to basic skills, there are also modules for Writing Skills and Graduation & Research.
Students learn and practice independently, the program guides them step by step: from acquiring basic skills to producing substantive language products at the 4F/C1 level. Students start by selecting their target level. The program assesses a students’ starting level through activation questions, and then students see an overview of their scores in ‘verb spelling,’ ‘general spelling,’ ‘sentence structure,’ and ‘general language use.’ Based on these scores, students are provided with exercises and they work through all the components until they reach their target level.
