Do you want to help your students learn to write better academic Dutch or English?

Are you looking for a high-quality learning, exercise and testing programme to reach your own educational targets? Hogeschooltaal offers an integrated learning pathway that starts with basic skills and builds up to writing language products at 4F/C1 level. It also takes a great deal of work off your hands.

How does it work?

It starts with your degree programme’s teaching plans: the language policy of the degree programme determines which professional products your students must be able to write, and at which level. It is likely that your degree programme’s teaching plan devotes attention to nurturing basic skills as well as to a learning pathway that teaches students to write better and more attractively (if such a plan is unavailable, our experts would be happy to help). You then choose which HST modules you want to use to implement the teaching plan, and how you will be using them. Hogeschooltaal consists of a learning and exercise environment for students and a high-quality assessment service.
