Hi! I am Linda Lucia van Kasteren, native Dutch speaker and certified teacher of Dutch as a second language.
I have been teaching Dutch to foreigners since 2008 and live in 's-Hertogenbosch.
With a lot of experience with people form many different backgrounds and many different learning goals, I can adjust my lessons to the needs of the students in front of me. I am specialized to focus on communication and speaking skills, as this is what a lot of people need more of, even after doing several courses.
Years ago I lived in the UK for some time and I have been learning Spanish in Spain. I understand life abroad, adjusting to a new environment, and learning a new language as an adult.
My lessons are in small groups or private, which means you will get a lot more attention from me as a teacher than in a regular full-size class. I am flexible in timings, so we can plan a fixed time every week or see whatever fits in your schedule.
Skype lessons are also an option with me, and I have taught many students this way. It is convenient and efficient. Check out my page on Skype lessons.
I can help you prepare for Staatsexamen or Inburgering on a language level and practical level. I can help you feel more confident in day to day life, speaking with people. I can help you with specific goals, like language for work, school, daily life or study.
