B1 Grammar Boost

Ik heb van de cursus genoten en ik heb veel nieuwe dingen geleerd. Mijn grammatica was niet zo goed en ik voel nu dat het beter is. Ik vind de onderwijstechniek leuk om de grammatica te oefenen.

C1 conversation

De C1 conversatie-cursus met Ida was fantastisch. Ze weet altijd interessante onderwerpen te vinden en betrekt alle deelnemers. De mix van deelnemers maakt het nog interessanter. Het uur vliegt elke keer voorbij.

A2 Grammar Boost

De cursus "Grammar Boost A2" is een uitstekende manier om Nederlands te leren. Als je je Nederlandse grammatica wilt verbeteren, raad ik het aan, omdat de lessen erg dynamisch en praktisch zijn en Ida veel kennis heeft van de Nederlandse taal, ze geeft ons elke week les en legt de inhoud van de les uit met grote efficiëntie, gemak en enthousiasme.

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!

Put it into practice A2

Dit was een geweldige cursus. Voor degenen onder ons die wilden bekijken wat we hebben geleerd in de A2 Grammar Boost, maar nog niet door wilden gaan naar B1 Grammar Boost, dit was de perfecte tussenoplossing. Ik zou deze cursus zeker nog een keer aanbieden aan iedereen die wat meer tijd wil nemen om te oefenen wat ze al hebben geleerd......en op een leuke manier!

Put it into practice A2

Als je op zoek bent naar een cursus met een beetje meer structuur dan een conversatie cursus dan is deze cursus voor jou. Ida combineert interessante onderwerpen met nuttige grammatica constructies in deze "A2 Put it into practice."

B1 Grammar Boost

This is the best Dutch language course I have taken, and I wish I had found it sooner rather than having wasted my money elsewhere. Ida knows her stuff and never makes you feel nervous about participating during the lessons. Her explanations are clear and timely. I will be signing up for another course after the Summer Holidays.

Grammar Boost B1

Ik probeer nu al zes jaar Nederlands te leren en heb veel leraren gehad, maar weinigen waren zo geduldig en begripvol. Ik vond je aanpak, je directe werk met ons en het modelleren van zinnen met ons heel nuttig. Je kunt erop rekenen dat ik samen met jou Nederlands blijf leren!

Conversation course A2

Ik vind deze cursus zo leuk dat ik hem nu vier keer heb gevolgd. Elke week bespreken we een interessant onderwerp en Ida maakt de klas leuk, interessant en informatief. We leren niet alleen over een verscheidenheid aan Nederlandse dingen, we leren ook over elkaar terwijl iedereen bijdraagt aan het gesprek. Ik raad deze leuke cursus zeker aan!

Frequently asked questions

  • Can I pay by transfer?

    +
    We now do accept transfers as a payment method. Just send us an email to info@thedutchonlineacademy.com" and we will send you the booking links and give you more details!
  • How does the onboarding lesson work?

    +
    You will have a level overview and some practice and homework. During the trial lessons we can get to know each other and set learning goals together. I can get an impression of your level and needs and I will share my thoughts with you. After the lesson you will get a homework assignment that I will correct for you.
  • Can you tell me a bit more about yourself?

    +
    I am a Dutch teacher, living in Spain. I used to teach Dutch at a school in the Netherland (near Nijmegen), but I moved to Spain in 2017, which made me explore the possibilities to teach Dutch online. I also taught Dutch at a language institute. 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 ;)).
  • How are the lessons structured?

    +
    During our first lesson I can get an idea of your level and your needs. I have a wide range of topics, speaking exercises and articles we can use. Of course I will give you feedback on your pronounciaton, use of grammar and vocabulary. If you have a specific topic you would like to work on, you can either bring it to class or let me know in advance via e-mail. Bare in mind that I will have to get to know your level and needs a little bit to help you best, I therefor strongely recommend multiple lessons. I will always share with you what I have in mind for the homework and our next lesson.
  • I don't know what I need to work on. Is that a problem?

    +
    Absolutely not. I will quickly get an idea of your needs and will share my opinion with you.
  • I want to combine our lessons with self study, is that possible?

    +
    I will diagnose your strengths and opportunities to develop your Dutch further. You will receive homework (normally using Google Docs). This is usually a mix of writing, reading, grammar and listening exercises but it largely depends on your needs and goals. I will correct the homework for you and we can discuss it during our next lesson if necessary
  • How do we talk?

    +
    Via Skype or Zoom.
  • Will there be room for informal conversation during our lesson?

    +
    Yes. Informal conversation is important, since it reflects conversations you could have outside the lessons. Moreover, it is a way to get to know your learning style and interests. I will motivate you to expand your vocabulary and grammar, by also adding more structured speaking exercises to our lessons.
  • How do you tailor the lessons to my needs?

    +
    By listening to how you like to learn, what your learning history is and what your interests are. I will quickly get an image of your level during a first lesson and always share my thoughts and ideas with you. I believe you as a student are the owner of your learning process, The Dutch Online Academy should motivate and guide you, giving you the right tools to get where you want to be.
  • I would like to work with a book. Is that possible?

    +
    Yes, during our first lesson we can discuss which book you would like to use. I can also give you advice if you do not know which books are suitable for you.
  • I would like to prepare for an exam. Is that possible?

    +
    Yes. I have experience preparing students for het inburgeringsexamen and het staatsexamen NT2.
