BA (Foreign languages)
I was born and raised in the Netherlands (of French descent), where we learn the languages of our neighbors at a young age. For centuries French was the second language in the Netherlands, today it is English. I studied French since the age of 10, German and English since the age of 12, (although I learned German already as a 4 year old because of German relatives) up to the age of 23, when I graduated from the Academy Performing Arts in Amsterdam. I worked as a translator for many companies and I am still on call as a tutor for the companies USA Language Trainers and Listen & Learn.
Speaking 4 languages myself, I understand the difficulties learning a foreign language. I developed methods to make the learning process easier and more fun.

After I graduated from the Academy Performing Arts in Amsterdam, I worked 25 years in different theater productions and as a drama teacher and director.
