I am a Turkish teacher. I graduated in Turkey with a BA in Languages. The classes I offer are from basic to academic level, so for children, students, expats and adults. That focus is on learning grammar, speaking,, reading and writing. If you want to learn Turkish for vacation, work, family or just as a hobby, I can certainly help you. I use Turkish grammar books, podcast, websites for learning Turkish and other study materials. and the rate is lower from 5 lessons. Normally a student with a motivation to learn the language learns basic Turkish in 10 or 15 lessons. Both private and group lessons (The Hague) are available.
I provide lessons for the Nt2 Staatsexamen and Dutch Nationalization exam (Inburgeringexamen)and Business Dutch for ex-pats and people who want to learn everyday Dutch. In the citizenship exam course, students learn about history, geography and basic vocabulary which are the contents of the exam. They learn how to respond to basic questions. Besides preparatory lessons for (Inburgeringexamen ,citizenship exam ,I teach Business Dutch) to expats. Online lessons are delivered through Google meet and Ms Teams and other online platforms.

Japanese, Japanese, Japanese! Native speaker will help you with your Japanese.
Hi, I am Norica, I was born in Tokyo and went to school in Tokyo and Boston USA. First of all, I would like to explain you why I posted this ad. I wanted to make you happier and have a better and nicer life by learning the language of my love. Nowadays many people learn Chinese and Vietnamese for work and business opportunities. But Japanese is unique and essential if you like anime or manga. It's the language of haiku. It's the language of wabi sabi. Believe it or not, it's fun to learn and speak Japanese. Quickly about my self: I was freelancing to the AP, the New York Times, the New York magazine, the Economist and the London Times and other English language media as a journalist. I wrote all sorts of stories in English. I also worked for a Japanese television, 日テレ Channel 4, for the news program called Zip!, morning news program, as a reporter and interpreter. I'm also an author of three books published by Japanese publishers SFC and Intershift. I wrote books about Eastern European cultures (in Japanese) I'm a translator for the books of Alice Waters, the American chef and food activist from CA, USA. I translated her essay-culinary books published by Shogakkan publishing from English to Japanese. With my more than 20 years of experiences as a journalist and an interpreter/translator, I am confident that I can help you with your Japanese at all levels. Whether you need help for your class assignments or presentations, whether you need someone to check your writing or improve your speech for job interviews. Or just want to learn some Japanese phrases for your holiday, just let me know. Arigatou gozaimasu, Norica

French tutoring for children, teenagers and young adults
As a French student studying in The Netherlands, in Leiden University, I've been able to hear so many different languages in my everyday-life. And I love giving some advice to my friends starting, currently learning or simply practicing French. Therefore, giving some French tutoring appears as a really gratifying experience, for both the tutor and the tutored! French being my first language, the level of my classes can depend on the level of the student: from learning the very first basis of the language to high school-level essay writing, I'd love to share some of my culture and language through my classes. My classes are open to children, teenagers and young adults. They can be in English, French or both. Depending on what fits you the best! Feel free to contact me if you are interested.

French talking and reading with vocabulary and grammar lessons
Do you want to learn a new language in a fun and interesting way? Why not french? France is only a few kilometers away from Netherlands ! French is my mother tongue and I have always been fond of learning new languages. I can teach you how to easily and quickly learn french. I master grammar, vocabulary, reading and writing methodologies. As a student myself, I know how hard it may seem to learn a new language. That's why I find interesting to gradually implement new items to the lessons. We can start with listening and studying french videos in order to understand the pronunciation and have a general idea on how to read and enrich your vocabulary. When I feel like you've became more confident, we can start focusing on grammar which is the trickiest part of the french language. I think that we should find pleasure in learning. Adapting my lessons to your necessities is my priority !
