Teaching and lesson style
At first glance, the Dutch language seems very difficult, both in grammar and pronunciation. As not to scare you, I will take you through the basics first, leveling you up step by step. Much like a house, a good foundation is a crucial element to build upon. Dutch is linguistically the closest language to the world’s most common language, English, making it easier to understand and remember much of the words, spelling, and pronunciation. That said, I will always work diligently to be patient with you no matter what your mother language is and will match whatever learning pace meets your needs. The most important thing I strive to bring to each lesson is a constant awareness of your learning goals and always making your growth as a language student my primary objective.
Me as a teacher
Before teaching, I like to understand my students’ motivations and desires to learn the target language. I always strive to create a comfortable setting for my lessons and be attentive to your learning needs. After each class, my ultimate goal is to get you more and more familiar with the glory that is the DUTCH language!
