Dutch – Certificaat Nederlands als Vreemde Taal


The Certificaat Nederlands als Vreemde Taal (CNaVT), or Dutch as a Foreign Language Certificate, is a government-subsidised non-profit organisation affiliated with the KU Leuven - University of Leuven in Belgium. CNaVT operates under the auspices of the Nederlandse Taalunie, which aims to strengthen the international position of the Dutch language by creating an infrastructure for a joint language policy, and by integrating the Dutch speaking people in the Netherlands and Suriname with the Dutch speaking (Flemish) community in Belgium. Within this framework, CNaVT designs and develops proficiency tests in Dutch as a foreign language, develops and maintains a databank of tests and test tasks for use by teachers of Dutch as a foreign language, and conducts research to provide these tests with a scientific basis.
