Dynamic Dutch courses with a smiling native speaker ;-)

I use several methods which are specially conceived to teach Dutch to people who have a different mother tongue. I really like to use methods out of the ordinary like role games or methods with which you learn while playing. All these adapted to the student's situation of course. As I learned myself a couple of other languages, it is easy for me to detect difficulties a student can encounter and adapt the way of learning. I can teach in English, French, German and Russian.

About Me

Hello, my name is Marcel, I am Dutch and I love languages. I really enjoy teaching languages or practicing them either by speaking, reading or writing. I have lived in several different European countries and have met a lot of different people with different accents. I learned French in France, but now I've been living in Brussels for 20 years. Today I speak French fluently, but it didn't happen overnight, so I know the difficulties of learning another language. I am married and a father of two children (14 and 11) whom I educate in Dutch. As they grow up in a predominantly French-speaking environment, I see and work with them the problems they encounter. I also take Russian lessons (so I know what it's like to be a student). I can teach in French, English, German, Russian and of course in Dutch :-) Looking forward to meeting you!

Education

I studied in the Netherlands where I lived until I had the of 23. I did the equivalent of a graduate in tourism there - for two years I have been training as a coach.

Experience / Qualifications

30 years of experience learning and speaking other languages - trying to improve them. 10 years of experience as a language teacher

Reviews (9)

After a few lessons I can only recommend him. Learning with Marcel is fun and effective.
Very nice first lesson! :)
Reactie na de eerste les voor een leerling die aangaf echt een hekel aan (het leren van) de Franse taal te hebben: 'Wow, dit was echt een leuke les!'
Prof au top qui s'adapte à votre niveau et à vos besoins!
Un prof au top: patient, créatif, disponible et sympathique! Sait parfaitement s'adapter à l'élève et construire un programme sur la longue durée. Je ne peux que recommander!
...
I like to use different methods to teach French to students. It can be through songs, drama, role play or videos. I also very often use situations close to the student's experience, such as describing places they have been or talking about what they have experienced. At the same time, I teach the grammar rules to the student. I now live in regions where French has been spoken for over 30 years. Because I have learned French myself (and I am still learning other languages), I can easily put myself in a student's shoes. I can teach in French, Dutch, English, German and Russian.

Serdane
Dutch courses for high school / adult students
My name is Serdane and I offer Dutch courses to high school and adult students who have trouble developing a work method that suits them. Extrovert and bubbly ... and above all, a lot of humor! I think language learning is primarily about developing a suitable learning method. Some learn the languages ​​intuitively by throwing themselves into the bath of conversation. Others, on the contrary, need to be exposed to the grammatical concepts in a rigorous way before starting the conversation. There are so many ways to learn that there are students ... That's why I adapt my courses to everyone's needs, and most importantly, I try to help students discover what works for them. him so that he can continue to progress independently. Having received a bilingual education and part of my schooling in Dutch, I have a perfect command of the language. After high school in Saint-Boniface, I did a double bilingual bachelor's degree (law) and economics at Saint-Louis University, then a law degree at UCL (completed in June 2018). including an Erasmus in German at the University of Vienna. This varied career allowed me to develop a solid working method. My areas of expertise: - Enhancement - catching up - Grammatical reviews - Conversation course - Method of work (organization, schedule of revisions, etc.) My price includes a complete tutoring (private lessons, the possibility to ask questions outside class hours, writing and correcting questions, etc.).

I am a bioscience engineering student (masters) and fluent in French, Dutch and English.

I prepare my class beforehand according to the needs of the student and the content of his/her course. In my science classes, I start with a general overview of the matter to make sure the basics are understood. Furthermore, I will make sure the student feels comfortable solving problems or understanding pathways and mechanisms. I prepare my class beforehand according to the needs of the student and the content of his/her course.

Does your child have a delay in the Dutch language. Register now!!
I specialize in the Dutch language. I go out to challenge the children to be able to use this language write, and understand. The student will receive homework after each lesson and will also receive periodic evaluation reports. This lesson is for children who do not completely master the Dutch language and have problems with pronunciation. The point is that you learn to read, write and understand it and learning to articulate it is of great importance. If you know Dutch spelling (present tense and past tense) you have everything under control. Everything is easier if you master and can speak the Dutch language.

Improve your Dutch - Improve your Dutch! Adapted to your wishes. Tailored to your needs.
I like to keep it varied - a fun lesson but with loads of grammar improvement, vocabulary but also games to consolidate these. Lessons are tailor-made to what you want. I use several books and methods to make your lesson topnotch. I teach online via Zoom or here in my home. Every lesson I sent all details home so you can revise what we have done and you can see your homework. I am a Certified Teacher of Dutch as an Additional Language and I have a University Degree in teaching Dutch Language and Literature from Leiden University. I have specialized in teaching Dutch as a Second Language at Hogeschool Amsterdam. I have lived abroad for 17 years so know a lot of living abroad. Having been an expatriate myself I like teaching people from other cultures. I speak good English and have some understanding of German, French and Spanish. I have been teaching Dutch since 1995 in the States - in Iowa - and since 2016 in Leiden - when I came back from living in Scotland, South East Asia and the States - in my own little company Doses of Dutch. Since 2019 I teach two groups of students in Wassenaar for four mornings a week as well. Usually people buy a package of ten lessons. For some children an hour long lesson is too long and they have 45 minute lessons.

Dutch for beginners in Breda / Dutch for native English speakers / Dutch for native Italian speakers
I am an experienced teacher and I speak four languages. I moved to the Netherlands five years ago and had to learn Dutch. So I am perfectly aware of the challenges people face when they move to a new country and try to learn a new language as adults. I think that my personal experience can benefit others who are struggling to learn Dutch. I hold a bachelor's degree in teaching of Italian language and Art History from Ljubljana University in Slovenia. My experiences as a teacher have given me the opportunity to interact with a variety of student populations and engage them in learning. Originally from Slovenia I have lived and worked in four different countries because of my husband's film post-production professional. In the Netherlands I taught Italian at Buas University - Tourism and Management and English Conversation at Gilde Baronie Apart from my teaching experience I was also a performer, illustrator and movement teacher.
