Although I have lived in Holland for a while, I had found learning Dutch quite difficult. Dutch people like to speak English and quickly switch over to English as soon as they hear an accent. I could manage with the small amount of Dutch I had picked up, but, for my work – and for my social life, I really needed to improve my understanding and speaking skills. I just didn’t have the energy or application, after a day at work, to use self study books. Then through my work, I had the opportunity to take Dutch lessons and was lucky enough to get Jos as a teacher. I can honestly say I always looked forward to her lessons. Jos quickly identified the areas I needed to improve and we used books, DVD’s, word games and conversation to make areas like Dutch word order come more naturally. We had a lot of fun in her class but learnt all the time. Jos is one of those teachers you always remember; she loves the Dutch language and has real passion for teaching it. She takes pride in helping her students improve. I surprised myself by passing NT2 II Dutch exam after taking Dutch lessons with Jos.

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!
