About Me

Hallo! Welkom op mijn profiel!

So you want to learn Dutch (or Flemish)? Maybe you've found the love of your life in a Dutch speaking country. Or you want to move to Belgium / the Netherlands for job opportunities. Or you're already living there and want to get more involved in the local life. Or you just like how the language sounds (a bit a strange sounding German mixed with French and English vocabulary) and want to master it.
No matter why you want to learn Dutch, I'm eager to help you.

Who I am, regarding languages:

• Graduated in bachelor of applied linguistics Dutch-French-Spanish, February 2017, Antwerp, Belgium.

• Graduated in master of multilingual professional communication, February 2019, Antwerp, Belgium.

• Taught Dutch and French privately to several non-native language speakers, both on- and offline. For my teaching style, I kindly refer you to my video.
Feel free to skip 1'47"- 3'57" of my video introduction, since that's just a little example lesson that's not very relevant to the core of the video, but obligated by Verbling.

• Loving grammar rules, proofreading & improving written texts.

• Traveling a lot, allowing me to keep orally practicing the foreign languages that I speak.

• Always trying to learn new things, develop new skills. In my opinion, you can learn anything, as long as you're motivated enough. The same goes for languages. The fact that you're visiting this platform, means you're on the good way ;)

Please send me a message first before booking any lessons, in order to make sure we have matching availabilities.

Let's reach that Dutch flow together!
