Small online group courses

 

Meet other expats in my small group courses designed to make learning Dutch enjoyable and social! I offer group Dutch courses for beginners up to level A2. Knowledge of English is required, especially for beginners, because I will give instructions and explain grammar in English.

“Anouk has created a very friendly and enjoyable environment during the course in spite of being online (which is always more challenging). She really cares for each of her students and remembers where we need more help.” – Rosa, Spain

Beginner Dutch course for expats - Active Dutch

My teaching approach

 

In a small group of maximum six students, you will have lots of opportunity to practice speaking. Instead of a traditional teacher-centred lesson, you will be actively engaged in learning. We will use the book Taaltalent part 1​ or ​part 2to guide some of our learning. You will be expected to prepare before each lesson, completing homework or fun video assignments! Taaltalent also offers the ability to practice what you have learned in class online afterwards. To maximize your learning, I recommend 2-3 hours of guided self-study each week.

“Anouk finds the perfect balance between hard work (grammar, vocabulary) and fun breakouts (games, quizzes) – and all of that in small groups. Intensive learning progress almost guaranteed. I can highly recommend!” – Peter, Germany
