I started to teach online group lessons Dutch as a corona compassion project for expats during the lockdown, with the goal to help them connect to eachother and to Dutch society more easily. It is now growing into a professional Dutch language training program, hosted by a small international team of skilled and certified professionals. We focus on conversation and connection in daily Dutch life. I am so happy to offer you the opportunity to join our online Dutch group courses every week from Monday night to Thursday night!


Levels

We offer 4 levels: Beginner, Beginner Plus, Intermediate and Advanced. In the Beginner and Beginner Plus class we will happily assist you with learning the practical basics of Dutch language. In the Intermediate class we offer various types of social conversations and needed grammar for people who already speak some Dutch and want to practise it in a safe and happy environment to gain confidence and feel comfortable speaking in social situations. If your Dutch already flows easily, you are welcome to join the advanced class and expand your vocabulary and fluency on specific, relevant subjects in your life. In every class you will be joined by a small group of 5 to 6 higher-educated people. Most of them live in the Netherlands. Some are preparing for their stay in the Netherlands from another country.


How we teach?

In our online classes you will learn and practise speaking, listening, various types of conversation, pronunciaton and practical application of grammar and vocabulary in daily Dutch life. We always look for interesting homework for you to prepare for class, that suits exactly what you need to learn. You are asked to make notes during class and study them afterwards. Also we use software to study vocabulary and grammar at home, preferably daily. In our classes there are no mistakes. There is just the joy of learning, understanding and sharing. How much you learn in how little time depends on how fast you learn and how much effort you put in your homework (preferably 1 hour daily). We are here to support and stimulate you in every step! We are experienced coaches and certified teachers and will make sure everybody gets a good amount of attention and speaking time in class. And of course there is a lot of space for all your questions. Let's enjoy!


Structure of the classes

We offer blocks of 5 weeks. You'll have a 1 hour class on either Monday night and Wednesday night or Tuesday night and Thursday night. We will spend about 40 minutes focussing on and practising basic knowledge you need for good conversation skills: listening, pronounciation, what to say in certain types of conversation, vocabulary and stimulation to become easy and fluent in speaking in social (and work) environments! Also every level has a certain amount of grammar, to make sure you get your basics right and speak well! And we'll spend about 20 minutes on conversation (e.g. in pairs). In every class there is room for questions and we laugh a lot! As an extra we offer 45 minutes of speaking practise with Dutch volunteers weekly (from A1 and up). You will have about 45 minutes to 1 hour of homework per day. 


You will most likely spend 3 to 4 blocks  in one level, before you move on to the next. Unless you already have a lot of knowledge from that level, then you'll move on sooner. Every block we offer new material and your understanding of the language deepens.


No guts no glory

If you know all the details of a language, but don't have the confidence or skills to speak with natives, you miss out on the fun! Language is about connection between people. We are here to help you with exactly that! Therefore we will do anything to support your speaking practise in safe environments, besides class. We offer online speaking practise with native Dutch volunteers from level A1 and up. And together with you, we will identify opportunities to speak Dutch in your daily life and discuss how to make the most of them.

Who is Joyce?

My name is Joyce Veldsink. I am a Dutch native. I studied Communications in Rotterdam and worked as a communications advisor for many years, writing press releases, policy documents and teaching writing classes to Dutch professionals. Also I worked in the UK, Spain and Mexico, which is why I have a good understanding of English and Spanish. And thanks to travelling a few months in Brazil, France and some other countries, I have a pretty good grasp of Portuguese, French and German. I have always loved teaching and therefore taught many types of classes to children, CEO's, engineers, councilors, consultants, small business owners, etc. Also I love connecting people from differtent backgrounds. What most of us have in common is that we like classes to be interactive, fun and open to questions and initiatives of students. So that is what I offer. I am looking forward to spending some quality time together and enjoy this extraordinary year!
