Dutch as a second language (NT2)
I am an experienced teacher of Dutch as a second language (NT2).
I believe lessons should focus on what you need the most, so we will spend most time on using Dutch in real life situations: how do you order in a café or restaurant? What phrases do you need in a shop? With more advanced students we’ll talk about Dutch in the workplace, or speaking to a doctor and practice writing skills. I always encourage students to bring in their own materials as well. Did you recieve a letter you have trouble understanding? Bring it to class, and we’ll look at it together.
After your application, I will contact you for an intake, during which we will establish what your current level is, which level you would like to achieve and what you want to practise most. That way I can choose books that best suit your needs, and also determine what other materials we will use. These can be songs, news stories, video’s, games, etc. I believe learning should be fun. That way you will remain motivated to keep improving yourself. Of course we can make changes in the original plan once we get started. And of course I will make sure that all aspects of Dutch are covered in the lessons: speaking, listening, writing, reading and grammar.
Private or small group lessons
I usually give private lessons, but if you have a spouse or friend or two that you want to take lessons with, this is possible too. Learning in a small group will give you more interaction, which can be great.
Online or offline
I teach both online and offline. For my online lessons, I use Zoom (and a number of interactional tools). Offline lessons take place at your office, on weekdays between 9 am and 17 pm. Usually my lessons are two hours, but if you prefer shorter lessons, that is possible too. Group lessons are always two hours.
You can book courses for 20, 30 or 40 hours. Group lessons are always 2 hours, private lessons can be shorter, if you wish. We will discuss this during the intake. I teach both online (using Zoom) and offline at your office.
