Scheduled at your time, with the convenience from your home: individual Skype lessons
" I work a lot and after travelling home it is such a relief to just switch on my laptop and work on my Dutch. And with work I mean really work, because my teacher is there, talking to me. I can't just throw my book to the side and watch tv as I want to!"
" Scheduling classes whenever I want to have them is a life-saver for me. I work in shifts and weekly classes at a set time are just not an option for me."
" Linda explains really well and I am happy that I can ask her all my questions, which I can't do in my other class as it is such a big group."
" I feel more confident to speak now. I was really scared to say something in Dutch at work or on the phone and that has changed."

More informationHow does it work and how many lessons do you need?
We can make a lesson plan for a specific goal that you have, or we can work towards a certain language level.
The language levels are A1, A2, B1, B2. More info on language levels: click here.
For level A1 and A2 you will need 9 lessons each. This is different from person to person but if you make homework and repeat the class it should be sufficient.
For level B1 and B2 you will need 18 lessons each. Also, at these levels you will need to surround yourself with Dutch every day and integrate the language into your life, to be able to progress.
Lessons are 60 mins and they are quite intense. We will concentrate on your questions and goals specifically, which is why it is more intense and more efficient than taking group lessons. After class, you will need time to repeat the lesson, before we start the next one. There is always homework.
Using Skype is great as you really have to focus at that time. Staying in the comfort of your own home and schedule at your preferred time is a great advantage as well.
There is no travel time, you get private tuition, an opportunity to exchange notes easily and audio plus video supports the feel of live contact.
