I have been teaching since I was 26 and I have been teaching Dutch in London for Cactus since 2009. I teach Dutch in the Cactus centre in Holborn.
Originally, I’m from Amsterdam, but I’ve been in London since 2003 and now I’ve been a Londoner for 16 years.
Amsterdam. The Venice of the North. The city of Liberty. Biketown. City of culture. We’ve got it all.
My original degree is in Business and that’s how I started with teaching.
I’ve retrained as an actor and am now work as an actor and Dutch voice actor.
6: Dutch, English, Spanish, German, French and Hebrew. I’m fluent in all with a beer in my hand, but will rather stammer, stutter and fake it when I’m sober.
Do not forget that language is a communication tool, so hands, feet, facial expressions, half-baked sentences are perfectly valid. Mistakes are encouraged and keep your language simple. Learn nouns and verbs and use them whenever appropriate (or not!).
Hopelijk tot snel in mijn Nederlandse les.
Groetjes en tot ziens!
