For ten years now I teach Dutch to foreigners and I haven’t regretted it for a single day. To me helping students to get to know our language is a joy. Step by step they begin to feel at ease with the language and it is wonderful to experience that as time goes by, students are less and less afraid to actually speak Dutch. Of course the best test is to speak Dutch outside the classroom, but as long as we are together at NedLes, I will do everything to improve your different levels (speaking, writing, reading, listening). At the same time I will make you feel at home in our great school.
Apart from teacher, I am also a writer. I started out writing poetry and novels, but the last 25 years I concentrated on drama series for Dutch television.
As for hobbies. I’m fond of water, so I love to swim, row and sail. I just started playing tennis, I play the piano every now and then, I like to read and like to walk.
Finally. I never make it a secret that NedLes is by far the best organized language institute I have ever worked for, with the nicest staff possible and with very dedicated teachers.
