Dear Dutch Learners,

 

This time an article from one of my students. This is why I do what I do, it made me proud! Philip (just turned 16) lives in New York:

 

Philip van Scheltinga

Grytte Article on Spring Break in the Netherlands

 

When a Browning student goes abroad to France or Spain or any other French/Spanish speaking country, he can finally put his years of studying a foreign language at school to use. He can form almost perfect sentences with some thought, and with full immersion, a student can reach a level of mastery with a foreign language. This whole process of learning another language begins at an early age at Browning and takes a long period of time. But what if the student wanted to learn another language other than French/Spanish? Would he still be capable of acquiring mastery over a foreign language in a shorter amount of time? This was the challenge before me as I left New York to go to Amsterdam on the first day of spring break.

 

I had always wanted to be able to speak Dutch, because everyone in my family could speak it. My sister had a Dutch babysitter until the age of two, and she only spoke Dutch, when she started pre-school. Being surrounded by English at school, Dutch at home at such an early age, she easily became bilingual. I, on the other hand, had an English-speaking babysitter, and although my parents had originally spoken Dutch to me, they stopped when I was two years old, because it was discovered that I had hearing problems.

Philip came back last week for two more weeks of Dutch class, and his Dutch is great!

 

If you would like to meet more of my clients, join us for the annual Eat & Greet… The plan is to eat in a restaurant together, your choice whether you would like to speak Dutch.

 

Have a nice summer!
