About me

Hi everyone, how's it going? (Hallo allemaal, hoe gaat het?) Welcome to the language course IKNS (Iedereen kan Nederlands spreken). My name is Jean, I'm 23 years old and I was born and raised in Rotterdam, the second largest city of the Netherlands. I have recently started giving Dutch classes in Dutch and English via Skype. I like to be occupied with foreign languages and meet new people from different corners of the world, but what I do like the most, is to enthuse people of all ages for the Dutch language and culture and to prepare people for their stay in the Netherlands, Flanders (the northern part of Belgium) and Suriname. Furthermore, I find incredibly exciting to be closely involved in the progress of their language study and I consider it as a major challenge to come up with new ways to speed up the learning process, because each student has their own learning style and opinion on what he or she finds import. In daily life, I work as a volunteer language teacher, language coach and class assistant at various educational institutions in Rotterdam and I have helped a lot of people from various religious and cultural backgrounds with their Dutch.

I am really eager to go with you to work!

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me or check my teacher profile for more information.

I'm really looking forward to meet you!

Hope to see you soon!

Teaching Approach

Welcome to the language course IKNS, which stands for ''Iedereen kan Nederlands spreken'' (Anyone Can Speak Dutch). If you're interested in the Dutch language and culture and planning to learn the Dutch language soon, then you've come to the right place! But also if you just started learning or have been learning for a quite long time, you're more than welcome!

As a teacher, I attach enormous importance to your interests and personal progress. I will actively observe your comprehension and act accordingly. I'm a teacher who also types while speaking so that you get to practice listening and reading. Furthermore, I'd like to create a relaxed and interactive learning environment, where you can feel at ease, fully focus on your Dutch study and don't be afraid to make mistakes. I offer EHBH, which stands for Eerste Hulp Bij Huiswerk (Homework Support) and ITT Intensieve Taaltraining (Intensive Language Training). The training is aimed at people who want to be challenged and more exposed to the language. I also offer extra support with the development of your Dutch speaking skills . This language course is for all levels: complete beginners (A0). beginners (A1), lichtgevorderden (A2), halfgevorderden (B1), gevorderden (B2), meergevorderden (B2-C1) , vergevorderden C1) en zeer vergevorderden (C2). The language course IKNS will be tailored in consultation and is for all ages. For orientation, I also offer a trial lesson . It consists of three parts. An introductory meeting, in which I try to get an idea of what your learning goals, needs, learning style, expectations, existing knowledge and experiences are. Furthermore you'll receive further information about the possibilities. An assessment, so that we can determine your starting level. And finally the lesson. I'm really looking forward to meet you soon! Greetings from Rotterdam! Héél veel succes met je Nederlandse taalstudie!
