About Me

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
Hujambo,

in 2000 I first came into contact with Swahili during my internship in Tanzania. 5 years later I decided to transfer my knowledge of Swahili to others.
But East Africa, and especially Tanzania, is my second home. Until 2019, as a tour operator and tour guide, I spent much of the year in Tanzania.

I like to transfer knowledge and watch people grow. So teaching has become my work and hobby: 3 days a week as a tourism teacher at HBO and at least 3 evenings a week in Swahili.

During the lessons I not only take the time to talk about grammar, but also the culture is discussed. Their world view is so beautifully reflected in their language.

Karibu Africa!

Super eerste kennismaking! Motiverend en enthousiast; aansluitend op niveau en wensen van student.
Vorige week mijn eerste Swahili les gehad, docent Cynthia is zeker een aanrader. Ik heb het als zeer prettig ervaren. Goed lesmateriaal en zeker wat ze je toestuurt per mail de oefeningen en als cadeau muziek tussen door.
Swahili is the language spoken in Kenya and Tanzania. In this course I will teach you both the language and the culture of these countries. To reach A1 level I will teach you the basic grammer. We will include dialogs as introducing yourself; buying fruits on the market, asking for directions. To reach A2 level I will teach you more in dept grammer. Dialoges included are talking about weather, work and hollidays. To reach B1 level we will continue with more complex grammer. And you will be asked to perform presentations on different subjects.
Swahili is spoken in Kenya and Tanzania. It is the most widely spoken Bantu language in Africa. In my A1 course I take you from zero to A1 level. In the beginning it will be a bit awkward, with small sentences, but at the end of the course you will be able to have simple conversations, such as buying fruit or booking a room. Knowledge and facts alternate in this course. We cover vocabulary and grammar of the language. The pronunciation will also be discussed, and we will practice small conversations. Topics covered include: - greetings and introduce yourself; - Various groups of nouns; - Count; - Sentence structure; - Present, past and future tense; - Direct object and indirect object; - Ask for directions; shopping at the market.
I have been giving Swahili lessons since 2004. Both beginners and average speakers. Although private lessons are always adapted to your own learning needs, I try to combine both grammar and conversation skills in the lessons. In addition, culture also comes up for discussion, because in my opinion it is inextricably linked to language.

Online Swahili Tutoring with a Native speaker - Conversational, Vocabulary & Grammar
Hi! Do you want to improve your Swahili speaking & comprehension skills? I am a native Swahili speaker. I am also experienced in tutoring for school & college students. I am able to customize the lessons based on the students' requirements. I am used to working with people of different ages. I believe in segmentation, visualization of progress, objective results and practice. Beyond these general lines, there is no rule or magic method. Some things work with some students and not with others. Adapting to needs is really the goal of private lessons. So I will do my best to find what motivates and helps my student.

Learn Swahili - webcam lessons are possible
This course is for anyone who wants to learn Swahili. Swahili is a very common language in Africa and it will be very useful for those who travel there, especially in the region of the great lakes. This course focuses mainly on grammar and oral communication to allow students to express themselves correctly quickly. Reading/writing is very close to speaking and is learned quickly. The objective of my course is to give students the opportunity to experience this language. So I try to help students project themselves into Swahili culture through dialogue, music and poetry. Depending on the progress and experience of the student, a trip to East Africa is strongly recommended to complete the knowledge acquired during these courses. This immersion will give the student the opportunity to experience, if only for a moment, the magic of the region where Swahili comes from.
