Review by:Put it into practice B1
Ik geniet enorm van deze cursus. Voor mij was het een prima combinatie van grammatica en conversatie, en ik vond de lessen altijd leuk. Bedankt voor de geweldige instructie!
Review by:Conversatiecursus B1
De cursus is geweldig om Nederlands te oefenen. Je krijgt zelfvertrouwen en zelfverzekerdheid. 19:30 is een perfecte tijd!
Review by:Share your story course
Ik vond de cursus leuk! Je moet elke week een presentatie maken, dus je leert veel nieuwe worden. Ik denk dat het is goed te combineren met andere cursussen.
Review by:Share your story course
Ik heb veel conversatiecursussen gevolgd. Maar de "Deel je Verhaal-cursus" is heel anders en heel nuttig. Ik heb al veel geleerd toen ik de presentatie aan het voorbereiden was. De voorbereiding neemt ook niet veel tijd in beslag. Omdat je tijdens de presentatie meer en coherenter spreekt dan in de "normale" conversatiecursus, krijg je ook een meer individuele feedback. Warmste aanbeveling voor de cursus!
Review by:Share your story
Ik vond de cursus "Share your Story" geweldig. Het heeft me geholpen mijn uitspraak, vloeiendheid en woordenschat te verbeteren. Ook het luisteren naar de presentaties van de andere deelnemers was erg goed voor mijn auditief begrip. Alle deelnemers waren aardig en de feedback van Ida in de chat was erg nuttig.

Frequently asked questions
How do the lessons work?+Each day we have a lesson (you will see it depending on the group you join) you will receive a Zoom link 30 mins before the lesson. When you click the link you will join a zoom call with your teacher and colleagues to have your lesson!
Can I pay by transfer?+Yes. Just select the group you want and click the write an email to join button and we will give you more details!
Is it possible to receive an invoice?+Yes. We are a registered Dutch business and provide invoices.
Can you tell me a bit more about yourself?+I am a professional Dutch teacher, living in Amsterdam. I used to teach Dutch at a school in the Netherlands, but I moved to Spain in 2017 (and back to Amsterdam in 2020), which made me explore the possibilities to teach Dutch offline and online. I have given over 2500 online Dutch lessons. I am still learning Spanish myself and I know the process is long and difficult at times, but I enjoy the little moments of success. The feeling that conversations get more and more natural is really rewarding. In my free time I enjoy running, reading, spending time with family and friends and cooking (+ eating ;).
I don't know what I need to work on. Is that a problem?+Absolutely not. In private lessons I will quickly get an idea of your needs and will share my opinion with you, giving you clear tips to get your Dutch to the next level. In conversation lessons, you will get lots of opportunities to practice your speaking skills. In the structured group lessons I will make sure every student gets the support he or she needs and I will give you personal feedback outside the lessons too.
I want to combine our lessons with self study, is that possible?+Of course. Especially private lessons and structured group lessons go well with self study. Homework is included in packages and it will be completely tailored to your needs. In the structured group lessons, we will work with a book. Certain exercises are perfect for self-study. I will indicate which ones and give feedback and support, also outside the lessons.
I am not sure about my level. What do I do?+If you have followed Dutch courses before, you can start where you left off. So if you, for example, passed an A2 exam, you can move on working from A2 to B1. You can always send an email if you are in doubt. I will then help you decide which course fits you best. For private lessons, your level doesn’t matter. I will always tailor the material to your needs, whether you are a beginner or working towards C1.
Do you have any other doubt?+Do not hesitate in contacting us in the bottom link at this page to write us an email with whatever doubt you may have, we will be delighted to respond as fast as we can.
