Frequently asked questions
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.
