    Tailored English courses at all levels, learning with fun (one on one and group)

    Language is the window to a culture, and at the same time an integral part of a culture.
    The overarching learning goal of my classes is for students to:
    a) master English (speaking, reading, listening, writing) at different levels through various teaching activities which engage, challenge and motivate them at corresponding levels,
    b) experience a different culture and acquire a different (new) perspective of looking at the world through the language they are learning.

    I will provide customized learning materials and handouts, and share various learning resources.

    For beginners, you will learn basic grammars and simple daily expressions.
    For advanced learners, you will learn intermediate grammars with the purse of gaining the competence to conduct daily conversations and read simple articles.

    About Me

    I obtained my Ph.D. with distinction, cum laude, from Tilburg University. Now I'm offering English and Chinese lessons at different levels.

    Born and raised in China and educated as an English major, I'm fluent in both Chinese and English. Through many years of experience in language teaching, I have mastered the skills and found the fun in exploring the beauty of languages and cultures together with students.

    Language is the window to a culture, and at the same time an integral part of a culture. The overarching learning goal of my classes is for students to: a) master Chinese/English (speaking, reading, listening, writing) at different levels through various teaching activities which engage, challenge and motivate them at corresponding levels, b) experience a different culture and acquire a different (new) perspective of looking at the world through the language they are learning. I will provide customized learning materials and handouts, and share various learning resources. For beginners, you will be introduced basic daily expressions, the pinyin system and basic grammars. For advanced learners, you will learn intermediate grammars with the purse of gaining the competence to conduct daily conversations, read simple articles, type, and write in Chinese.
    When you are uncertain about your essay or thesis (for instance the structure, argument or format), the opinion of a reader who is experienced in academic writing will be of great help. The goals of this class are to train your skills in academic writing in the aspects of text structure, logic, coherence, argument and format, and to improve your essays and theses. You will be provided the fundamental knowledge in the above-mentioned aspects, followed up with exercises and feedback. If you have a ready text, I will work on it together with you, sentence by sentence, paragraph by paragraph. In this process, I will ask you questions concerning your text to help you better form your argument, you will be informed of various argument valencies if there is any, and you will receive advice concerning the structure and format of your text. For essays and theses in the field of linguistics and culture studies, I will also provide feedback and advice on analysis.
    Strictly speaking, this is not a class, but a sharing of culture. My intention is to share some typical dishes and food from Northern China, and thereby provide you a bite of Chinese culture. You can invite friends to participate together, and make the "class" a dumplings party, or food party.

This way you can improve your English fluency or vocabulary. You will have the chance to practice English with an experienced and qualified teacher.To join me you don't need anything but your presence! I am an experienced teacher and I speak four languages. I hold a bachelor's degree in teaching of Italian language and Art History from Ljubljana University in Slovenia. Originally from Slovenia I have lived and worked in four different countries because of my husband's film post-production professional. Among other things I lived in London where I taught movement therapy. I moved to the Netherlands five years ago and have been learning Dutch. So I am perfectly aware of the challenges people face when they try to learn a new language as adults. I think that my personal experience can benefit others who are struggling to improve their language skills.
