I love the warm and positive atmosphere of the classes. This safe and comfortable environment turns learning Dutch into such an enjoyable experience. We practice reading, listening, speaking and some writing during the classes and we are encouraged to practice this further at home with the workbook and extra exercises. It is remarkable how Tineke, our teacher, offers personalized feedback to each one of us and how patient she is in answering all our questions. I look forward to the class every week and I’mstarting the second consecutive Dutch course. I definitely recommend it.

Bedankt! Thank you for the great teaching. As an expat,one of the most challenging things in the Netherlands is to learn Dutch. I am very pleased with all I have learned so far. Even working in a group class, the teacher is always aware of everybody needs on learning.I now havea strong basis to continue learning Dutch.

The feedback I received from my colleagues is that your informal way of teaching was very much appreciated by them. Thanks again for the pleasant cooperation and maybe goodbye until we meet again.
