About me

josI have, with pleasure, taught Dutch and French language and culture for 19 years at KIT (Koninklijk Instituut voor de Tropen) in Amsterdam. KIT is the foremost language and cultural training centre in Holland. I started my own company in 2005.

After I finished my Master's degree in French Language and Literature with General Linguistics, I studied Education specifically Dutch as a Second Language at the University of Amsterdam. In subsequent years I have taken many further courses. For example Teaching French for business, Spanish language courses, I.T. and intercultural communication. My students come from all over the world. Dutch is my native language and in addition I speak English and French as a near native, and Spanish and German at a lower level.

Cultural differences

During the lessons we are, of course, sensitive to cultural differences. It is often not just a question of how you say something, but what you say in which situation!
