Last summer it was a quarter of a century since I moved to the Netherlands.
Long time ago? Yes, of course.
Not too long ago however as I still remember the things I came across as a foreigner while trying to learn Dutch.
Is 25 years enough to speak perfect Dutch? Maybe.
I used to worry about my accent, trying to camouflage it.
Until I realised that this might be one of my unique selling points:
Because I recognise those pitfalls I can help you tackle them.
I enjoy each lesson because I learn from my students from all over the world.
During our lessons they tell me about their countries, about international habits, and yes, they do it (partially) in Dutch.
And this allows me to travel around the world daily.
Last but not least, expats are my favorite students because all of them are highly educated professionals and I enjoy communicating on the same wavelength.
