Hi there !

Who am I?
In 2004 I obtained my master's degree in Romance languages and literature + aggregation at the University of Leuven.

In Belgium I have been teaching languages (Dutch, French, Spanish) for 10 years at an adult education school in Brussels. I really like it! Ever since I bought a dog and moved to the countryside, I've also loved creative writing.

What are the NL lessons about?
I can offer you conversation, writing, listening or reading lessons in Dutch, French and Spanish. I would be delighted to show you around in my native language! Your interests are my interests!
-Oral and written expression; reading and listening skills.

Inburgering training - Online lessons - Exam preparation.
Hi, The inburgering exam is often considered a long and stressful undertaking. With the right guidance and teaching, this does not have to be the case. In this training you will work towards the exam efficiently and at your own speed. You will get familiar with the structure and the logic of the exam and exam questions. Once you understand this, it will save you a lot of time. INDIVIDUAL TRAINING: Efficient training At your own speed Personalized coaching Time saving tips & advice about the exam A lot of exam practice material Online or in person GROUP TRAINING: Form a group with people who also want to take the exam Personalized coaching Time saving tips & advice about the exam A lot of exam practice material Reduced group rate Online or in person How I teach: 1 - Your level and objective(s) At the start, we will discuss your level and objectives. This way I can efficiently give you the help that you need. 2 - Open communication I have an open way of teaching in which I encourage students to keep telling me what their difficulties are or where they would like to improve. In my experience, this saves a lot of time and also makes the lessons more fun. 3 - Simplify instead of complicate I am good at listening and understanding why students are having difficulties with certain issues. This way I can simplify the issue and teach Dutch in an easy and understandable way. 4 - Involved I am involved with my students' objectives and am constantly looking for the best and most efficient way to make progress.

Learn Dutch, French, English or German at your own pace
Fully adjusted to your level and your needs, I will prepare your own materials and grammar you need. Also help with translations, reading and writing documents, homework, etc I have a fixed experience teaching all levels, several languages

Adriaan
Dutch for all levels, for kids, teenagers and adults.
I teach Dutch to beginners, intermediate and advanced levels. I am from Rotterdam, so I am a Dutch native speaker. During the lessons I write all the information on a Google doc. After each session I assign homework for the next session. Between two sessions students can always ask me any question about the things we discussed in the lesson. I am bilingual Spanish/Dutch so I can use Spanish, English, but also German as a bridge language.

Carina
Learn Dutch or Flemish language from a native speaker.
Cosy private lessons for everybody I try to make my online lessons as cosy as possible. I use the video-conference system, so I can see my students and they can see me; we can talk, we make the exercises together, I explain all the grammar, and if my students have any doubt or questions, I explain it orally which I think makes it easier to be understood. It is as if we were sitting in an office side by side. The only thing we cannot do is drinking a coffee while we study. Besides the lessons, I always send some homework. I will send a book that we follow, and the rest of the material is sent by me by e-mail as well. As soon as it is possible, I advise my students to start reading books in the language they learn, and from the very beginning to start listening to the TV. It is a way of being surrounded by the language. I always insist a lot on the accent, and this helps. I have students with a perfect accent. Listening to the language also helps to open the hears to the sounds, making easier to understand. From the very beginning I also start with small conversations in each lesson. You may believe that all my students are being very successful with this kind of lessons. I have now students from all over the world. Concerning the level my students attain, ofcourse it depends on them. Together we see what your needs are and how fast you want to learn. As for the number of lessons per week, I advise that you should have at least two. Less than two is very little and you have a long break between lessons. It is bad because you don't have any contact with the language and feel that you are advancing very slowly. We can also have lessons in the weekend if that is easier for you.

Liesbet
Dutch lesson for non-native speakers and (non-native) children
As non-native parents it is certainly not easy to teach your children Dutch or to help with the fluency of the new language. Who wants some extra exercise for his children? I can help you with that. As their vocabulary becomes more and more extensive and their sentences become increasingly fluid, your children will get more and more self-confidence. Good mastery of the Dutch language is certainly in their favor both now and later. Do your children need some help with their homework, especially with their Dutch, then I can help with that. Even as non-native-speaking adults, it is sometimes difficult to have enough exercise. That is why adults who want to make progress in speaking the Dutch language are welcome here! We can practice the everyday language together. Conversing is the best way to learn a new language.

Sabine

Dutch classes ( private classes/ grouplessons) in a fun and flexible way.
My name is Ieke and I teach Dutch as a second language to adults and children as well. I teach in a flexible way and there is always a possibility to bring your own ideas. But first of all, we'll have an intake, so we can talk about your goals, expectations, way of learning and the methods/ books we can use. We will work together to put your Dutch to a higher level. I will also give you homework which can contain several skills like watching Dutch tv, speaking with the neighbors, reading an article you're interested in and so on. Above all, I hope to make the lessons interesting, fun and informative.

Taal online - The Dutch online all levels, all ages
Hello, I am Dutch-speaking and teacher of Dutch 2nd language and English for years! I live in Antwerp, but I also teach in Arlon (at the Pro Linguis institute). During the week I teach by internet to beginners and advanced learners, young and old ... This means that neither I nor you have to move. No loss of time and great flexibility, with all the benefits of a 'normal' lesson These are private lessons - a headset with microphone and a good internet connection are enough (a webcam would be nice, but not essential). I use a didactic application that is not difficult and requires no installation from you.

Anne
Dutch Teacher (Native Speaker) Teaching NT2, Academic Dutch, and (Academic) English
As a recent Master's graduate student in English Literature at the University of Amsterdam, I specialize in tutoring English for high school and college students. I also hold two bachelor's degrees (General Linguistics/Literature and Society) and have a lot of experience in training highschool students for their (final) exams. In addition, as I am a native Dutch speaker and completed several courses on teaching Dutch as a second language, I can help you improve your Dutch skills. I currently teach Dutch as a second language to adults at a private language school in Amsterdam. Whether you want to brush up on your grammar, practice your fluency in speaking, or focus on a very specific topic, either in English or in Dutch, I will make sure your tutoring session is tailor-made to your needs and wishes. Due to the current situation regarding the corona virus, with many people having to stay in their homes, I have started Dutch as a second language Skype lessons as well. Right now this is available both private and in groups (of up to four people).

Catharina

There is a goal to achieve and it will be done. * Whether learning a language to improve your career, for travel or even romantic reasons, help is at hand - just reach out.

We would highly recommend Catharina to anyone who would like to learn a new language. Afeisha: Very professional, friendly and informative.

Egle: Great tutor! Catharina adapts lessons to ones needs, gives very clear explanations and most importantly works on the pronunciation of the language. With every lesson she provides lesson material.
