Dutch B @ ISB
In Dutch B we work with phases
1. Phase 1: If this is the first time you learn Dutch (or if you only have learned a little bit of Dutch in the past) you start in phase 1
2. Phase 2: You can already use Dutch in simple conversations and you understand most of the simple things I say in Dutch
3. Phase 3: You understand everything I say in Dutch and you can answer my questions in Dutch without preparation
4. Phase 3+: You are a native Dutch speaker, but you haven't learned a lot about writing and reading in Dutch.
5. Dutch A: Native speakers (You don't focus on the language anymore, but you learn more about Dutch literature)
Slide 9 - Slide
Task 1: Wie ben ik?
1. You get a task sheet from me with questions about yourself. Fill in the task sheet.
2. The questions are in Dutch. If you don't know what they mean, ask me!
3. If you can, answer the questions in Dutch. If you don't know how to write it in Dutch, English is fine too!

Board game: Snakes and ladders
1. In groups (mixed phases) you are going to play Snakes and Ladders
2. Use 1 phone as a dice roller (google: online dice) and make sure everyone has a pawn or token (use something small from your pencil case)
3. Everyone starts at number 1. You roll the dice for the amounts of steps you can take in your turn. If your pawn lands on a ladder, you may go to the end of the ladder. If your pawn lands on the mouth of a snake, you have to go back to the tail.
4. For every number on the board game, you have to answer a question from the list with Dutch questions. Also explain your answer. Your classmates should get to know you better
5. If you don't understand the question, ask help from a classmate or ask the teacher
6. The person who reaches number 35 first, wins!
