Due to a shoulder that is not working 100%, I
cannot teach immersion courses in the next few weeks. But the good news is:
now there is room for private
sessions (until September 20th), mail me if you are
immersion course will start September 24th (Level 1.5, designed
for students who have learned about Dutch, but have had no
opportunity/confidence to speak it.)

This beautiful movie is made by
Valerie, one of the participants of last week’s Total Immersion 1, mostly
during the breaks. If you like this movie, I will ask her to make a new
movie of the next immersion class with some of the activities as well, as
an observer ;-)
is done by my dog Mister, who suddenly seemed to think that the camera was
a toy ;-)
In case you wonder about the very ripe bananas in the clip, here is the recipe of the cookies we made with
“Two” Ingredient (Gluten Free) Banana
2 very ripe bananas
oats (enough to make a good
cookie dough texture)
(You can add nuts, seeds,
raisins, cranberries, coconut etc.)
Mix bananas and oats
together and bake in the oven at 180 ºC for 15 to 20 minutes.
