I'm Inge. Ever since I recall I've always been a social animal, whether it being through language, movement, travelling, music, people. Over the years I've learned several foreign languages. 

Right now I'm focussing on my Spanish skills to use in my next travels. I know what it is like to learn a language, and with almost 20 years of teaching experience I'm pretty convinced I can teach you good tips & tricks how to memorise and assimilate. Also, the contact with people and seeing them progress every single time reminds me why I love my job so much!

I've been teaching since 2004 and the founder of Hendrickx Interlingua (Hi Dutch, 2018).

Tot snel!!

My name is Leon.Teaching mostly beginners courses I love seeing the first flashes of understanding on students’ faces. Moving from (total) incomprehension to a workable basic level of Dutch together is a rewarding process. Trained as an anthropologist I am fully aware that learning a language is much more than studying grammar and vocabulary: it is wrestling with foreign concepts too. In my classes we wrestle with the Dutch language in a fun and relaxed atmosphere. 

 

Why learn Dutch? Amsterdam is a nice enough city when you speak English but speaking Dutch opens doors, socially, and provides interesting windows on the Dutch and their peculiar culture too. 

Kom binnen!

Hoi! I go by the name Lotte, a typical Dutch name which you have probably heard before if you're located in the Netherlands. I was born in a small town in the east of the Netherlands (in Twente) and moved to Utrecht and Amsterdam later on. After spending my time studying and working in the 'big' cities of the Netherlands, I moved to Cape Town, South Africa for 4 years. Right now I'm located in Utrecht! So if you're closeby and would like to practice your Dutch during a nice walk or a warm coffee, let me know! A little bit about my teaching style: I am currently teaching groups and individuals from various levels (A0 - C2). Of course besides grammar and vocabulary etc. my classes always contain different elements, such as discussing articles, statements and the latest news and topics of your interest. I aim to create an open, safe and relaxed environment for everyone to learn whilst having fun! 

Hallo! My name is Mirjam van Beijsterveldt, originally from the beautiful province of Zeeland, in the south of Holland. I have been teaching Dutch since 2005 and really enjoy working with the language and with the students learning it. My lessons are dynamic, informal yet serious, and they have a strong focus on conversation.

I, myself like to learn languages as well. I speak Spanish fluently, and get by in French and Portuguese. The last few years I have been able to practise a lot, since I was lucky to spend some time in France, Portugal, Spain and several Latin American countries.

During my travels I wrote three children’s books (in Dutch!), which have all been published by now. Writing is nice, reading as well. I always like to make time for it. 

Other (non linguistic) activities I enjoy are practising yoga, walking and cycling. Cycling, especially in the Netherlands. I miss our flat fietspaden when I’m abroad!

Hello! My name is Sarah Bouanan and I am a teacher of 

Dutch for non-native speakers. I live in the beautiful city 

of Amsterdam, close to the city center (De Pijp). As a 

child, I always found it very fun and educational to be 

involved with language. When the weather was nice, I 

would sit on my balcony and write poems. My first 

teaching experience was with young teenagers at a high school. But actually, I soon found out that my vocation lay with another target group, namely young adults with a passion for learning a new language. And I really enjoy doing that! It gives me a satisfied feeling when I have been able to help someone a little further in his or her learning process. I was raised bilingual with Arabic and Dutch. However, at home we actually spoke more Dutch than Arabic. I have always been busy with language and I find it very challenging to guide new students in their language development. But above all it is a lot of fun! I am therefore happy to help you take your first steps with the Dutch language. In Dutch we say "zullen we gauw een bakkie doen?" to get to know each other while enjoying a nice cup of tea or coffee!
