Monica Velasco

Although I had lived in Holland for four years, my Dutch was not very good and people had trouble understanding me.
This undermined my confidence so that I spoke Dutch less and less. Then I met Jos and I think she is the best teacher I could have had. She saw exactly what I needed and was very patient with me. In short she is a real professional. She encouraged me and said when things were going well so that I soon started to get my confidence back. Really, Jos was so good at knowing exactly what I needed that her lessons became a very enjoyable part of my week. I learned so well with Jos that within one year I had passed my NT2.
I now speak almost faultless Dutch and have Jos to thank for that.

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!
