My name is Leslie, and I have a passion for Dutch!
I don't teach, but I train my students, meaning I focus on you ending up being truly proficient in Dutch as a foreign language... and I make it fun:
My way of training is all about incorporating useful grammar and vocabulary through practical topics. I subtly have you revising, making the content truly stick. Sneaky, huh? But what better way to learn, than to not even realize you're learning, right?
My students in the past range from in-company employees climbing the career ladder, to party-happy 18 year old students. I have tutored groups and individuals, face-to-face and online. I happily supply my students with extra materials, (online) exercises, links... making it a win-win situation, since I know you're developing yourself even further on your own.
I am originally from Belgium and hold a degree in Languages and Teaching. Whether you are interested in learning (Netherlands) Dutch or (Belgian Flemish) Dutch, I am able to adapt to your needs. I have a correct standard pronunciation (right in between NL and BE Dutch!) and will always be able to fill you in on nuances between the two variations. My students in the past have ranged from both varieties and have sometimes not even noticed which was my origin :)
I love training, i love the contact with students and helping them reach their goals. And I hope I can help you out too!
