Lessons In Dutch that meet your level, interests and goals!
Time & Location
About the Event
Having been born in the heart of Amsterdam I have always stayed there and hope to continue living ánd teaching here for many years to come. After studying Dutch for a short time at the University of Amsterdam I ventured into creative writing for music-theatre performances, voice-over work, and creative communication for various campaigns. I have been copy-writing professionally for many years, translated English spoken animated movies intoDutch and wrotesong lyrics and poetry. April this year I started teaching Dutch and really like it! I have a sharp eye for grammar and (being a singer) a good ear for proper pronunciation. I love to help you master my language. This can be done in various ways, also using creative ones. While having all the 'standard' methods to rely on for teaching you everything you need to pass NT2 B1 and/or NT2 B2 exams, I am very open to find the way of learning that fits you best, depending on your level of Dutch, your interests and goals!
Lessons can also take the shape of a conversation, talking about specific topics that are important in your life or, for example, focussed on your writing skills.
What is the easiest way to learn Dutch in Amsterdam?
My suggestion would be to start with speaking Dutch in shops, cafés and restaurants (when ordering and paying); you will need the same set of sentences and won't land in too long 'conversations'. Once you feel comfortable (and while learning more and more Dutch words and mastering the grammar) you can extend speaking Dutch in other situations. Also: try to watch movies in your language, with Dutch subtitles.... When doing this online, you can replay bits of the movie to double check how things are being said in Dutch. Or...: watch Dutch movies, with subtitels in your own language, figure out what is being said and listen carefully to how that is done in Dutch (words and intonation...) A fun way to learn!
I teach from home (in the centre of Amsterdam, very close to the Leidseplein) but also online (via Skype or Zoom). You can opt for lessons of either 1 (€30) or 1.5 hours (€40), once or more often per week. Tariffs are includingVAT.
