Dear Dutch Learner,
Lots of good news in this newsletter!
Learn Dutch Fast has received
the status of ”Träger für die Durchführung von Bildungsurlaubsveranstaltungen
(Hessen)”. Impossible to translate ;-) but this is
important for clients from Germany,
because now their Dutch lessons will be paid for by their company.
Talking about Germany, the German journalist Annika Fischer I have worked with
for the last couple of years during the Dutch-German Journalist exchange,
decided that she likes teaching German so much that she would like to teach
on a more regular basis. Together, we will organise a tandem week Dutch-German in Bussum
later this year (what
is a tandem lesson?), and in near future, you can also stay with her
(she lives in Germany)
for your private German lessons. Please contact me for
more details. I can assure you she is a very gifted teacher, I like working with her very much!
From German to Russian: For
those of you who missed the March
issue, I want to tell you about Lola,
my trainee. She is a Russian teacher; she used to teach Russian
literature at a Russian university. Now she would like to start teaching
Russian to Dutch or English speaking people. Till July, I will be her
trainer. Her Dutch is quite good, so we decided that she would teach some Dutch conversation classes filled with
short conversation activities, so she can get some feedback from the participants.
teach two conversation lesson again, supervised by me. We are
looking for people who know the basics of Dutch, but can’t speak it
and April 25th
Dutch Fast in Bussum
€15,- per session, please bring your
This course will not be advertised
on the site, it is only for readers
of this newsletter.
Of course, Lola will also be available for those
of you who want to learn Russian!
From Russian back to Dutch: Some of
you might have met Rosemary, my
Dutch neighbour who often walks with us during a walk and talk to help with
the Dutch conversation part. She would like to help more people with their
Dutch. If you speak Dutch at conversation level and just wish to use it without a real “lesson”, she
would be delighted to spend some time with you for only a small fee.
Last but not least: I have planned two budget days,
where I will use leftover copies from other projects mixed with newly
designed activities. Just a fun day to use
your Dutch and learn more vocabulary.
Stay tuned: next
month, I will post new online learning activities!
Please find the schedule
for the rest of 2013 right here.
