About me

Hi, my name is Adriaan Johan Kruis.

I was born in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, 57 years ago. I have been living in Spain since 1980. I love languages, music, travelling, football and a good meal but especially teaching.

I worked as a manager of two export companies in Spain and since five years I have been working as a teacher, translator and interpreter.

Qualifications & Experience

I finished my degree in Linguistics at the University of La Laguna (Spain). The first three years of this study were done at the University of Utrecht ( The Netherlands).

I have been teaching Dutch online for the last five years by Skype. My experience as a teacher has been with students from 11 until 72 years old from all parts of the world: China, U.S.A., U.K., Spain, Portugal, Croatia, Japan, Corea, Germany, France, Belgium and Poland.

Teaching is my passion.

Teaching Approach

The lessons are for beginners, intermediate and advanced levels. Conversation is possible as well.

I try to give my lessons in a pleasant way for the students and give some homework for the next lesson. As soon as possible I combine grammar with conversation. I use my own teaching materials and I want my students to take notes in their own notebook.

I am very patient but I want my students to show commitment.

About me

Hallo, mijn naam is Adriaan Johan Kruis. Ik ben 57 jaar geleden geboren in Rotterdam, Nederland. Sinds 1980 woon ik in Spanje. Ik houd van talen, muziek, reizen, voetbal en lekker eten, maar vooral van lesgeven. Ik heb gewerkt als directeur van twee exportbedrijven in Spanje en houd me sinds 5 jaar bezig met lesgeven, vertalen en tolken.

Qualifications & Experience

Ik ben afgestudeerd in Spaanse Taal- en Letterkunde aan de Universiteit van La Laguna ( Spanje). Na drie jaar studie aan de Universiteit van Utrecht heb ik deze studie afgemaakt in La Laguna. Sinds 5 jaar geef ik online Nederlandse les via Skype. Ik heb ervaring met studenten van 11 jaar tot 72 jaar uit alle hoeken van de wereld: China, V.S., Verenigd Koninkrijk, Spanje, Portugal, Kroatië, Japan, Korea, Duitsland, Frankrijk, België en Polen. Lesgeven is voor mij een passie.

Teaching Approach

De lessen zijn voor beginners, midden niveau en gevorderden. Ook conversatie is natuurlijk mogelijk. Ik probeer mijn lessen zo leuk mogelijk te maken voor de leerlingen en geef huiswerk voor de volgende les. Zodra het mogelijk is combineer ik conversatie met grammatica. Ik beschik over mijn eigen lesmateriaal en wil dat de studenten via hun aantekeningen leren. Ik ben erg geduldig als leraar maar verlang wel inzet van de leerlingen.

I appreciate that I am being taught how the Dutch speak, along with the "syntactically correct" form.

I always look forward to our sessions. Some of the rules are finally sinking in! Now I need to expand my vocabulary!
