Get Feedback for Your Writing
One of the most effective language exercises is writing essays and having them corrected by a language instructor. This practice pushes the limits of your language skills and reveals your weaknesses via the feedback you receive. If you have a language instructor, seize every opportunity to write an essay and have it corrected by him or her.
If you are using a computer to write your essays, make sure you use a Dutch spellchecker. Language Tool is a powerful open source spellchecker.

Listening: Find Movies, TV and Radio Stations in Dutch
Thanks to the Internet, you have a plenty of choice when it comes to Dutch radio and TV programs. Many TV channels offer their programs online. Radio channels can also be streamed over the Internet. In order to find Dutch radio and TV programs, Google the phrases: Nederlandse tv via internet and Nederlandse radio online.
A fun alternative to radio and TV programs are movies in Dutch. There are some Dutch movies in iTunes and Netflix. An advantage of watching movies at home is the ability to switch the subtitles on. You can watch the movie with the subtitles in your own language or in Dutch. Both will be helpful to improve your listening and comprehension skills. Although it would not improve your listening skills, an efficient and fun way to improve your Dutch vocabulary is to watch movies in English with Dutch subtitles.
Practice Speaking with Language Exchange Groups
You cannot claim having learned a foreign language unless you speak it fluently. Speaking is the most critical, challenging, and at the same time, the most fun core skill you need to develop. The good news is that the Internet makes it easy to find conversation partners in the language you are learning. Conversation partners can be found by searching for language exchange groups. This way you will find local communities as well as online partners, with whom you can have conversations over Skype.
