Read what other expats had to say about Active Dutch’s beginner Dutch courses…

I very much enjoyed having Anouk as a teacher. She keeps lessons engaging and fun, while paying the utmost attention to the individual progress of each student. She would patiently make small talk with the students before and after the lesson and give us recommendations as to what we could watch, read, or listen to to improve our Dutch and share little anecdotes about Dutch everyday. I really enjoyed the course; it motivated me to keep on learning Dutch and to learn more about the Netherlands.

Anouk was teaching me Dutch in [Dutch Gold] level. I really liked to go to the classes because she was always well prepared. We had a lot of interactive games, and beside the topics we had to discuss, she always came up with up to date topics and practical information about The Netherlands. I find it a very efficient teaching method, as it is very motivating to learn from a nice person who makes the lesson as colorful as possible! I hope we meet again sometime, and thank you a lot!

I followed a Dutch course with Anouk in 2013. She is able to stimulate the students at evening lessons and understand the needs of expat people in a new country. She is extremely good at balancing grammar and conversation. I really appreciated her approach and the atmosphere she is able to create within the classroom. I really hope to have the possibility to follow other courses with Anouk.

Anouk taught me Dutch over a 12 month period during 2011 / 12. I found her approach easy to understand and comprehend even though I really was starting from scratch with no former knowledge of the language. Lessons were never boring or dull, keeping a good balance of study and fun at all times. Anouk was also able to make our learning highly relevant to daily living such that we could apply what we learned immediately. A great teacher!
