Basisexamen inburgering (A1) resources


Recommended Posts

I've found some really useful resources that might come in handy for people getting ready for the basisexamen inburgering (A1).    Most of them give you a clue of what you will see in the actual exam, but I must admit I'm not sure  if all those exercises (in that modality) are present in the real exam.


The naar Nederland practice exams: http://www.naarnederland.nl/en/category/voorbeeldexamens

Perfect to get ready for the KNS: http://toetskns.nl/

Ad Appel material (reading): http://adappel.nl/lesmateriaal-2/

Taalspot: http://www.taalspot.nl/

My favorite one: https://basisexameninburgering.nl/


I hope someone finds those useful!  I might post more later :) 


UPDATE:   It's confirmed, Mr. Thijsebaard himself told me (via e-mail) the real exam contains the same exercises as the ones seen in the practice exams (the modality - not the actual questions). The exam was completey revamped back in December 2014!!  So yes, its structure and content has changed. THANK GOD!!!!

"Inburgering" typically means like "to become naturalised", so I assume this exam is especially designed for immigrants.
But I might be wrong, I never had to get through any official language exams before.

You are lucky, I have an appointment at my local Dutch embassy... just 6 weeks away!   I need to go there and take the exam, I was told this exam is now done on a computer and no longer done with a phone.  The exam was totally revamped back in December 2014, so now it's supposed to be easier. The exams consist of 3 different parts: 1) Dutch society knowledge.  2) Reading. 3) Speaking.  I heard you only have 60 seconds to answer.  I might not be seen on here at all during November, because I will go hardcore on this ^_^
