Willemijn Koning

Willemijn Koning has studied History at the University of Amsterdam. She published articles and gave guest lectures and talks on Amsterdam in the 19th century. She teaches in several disciplines: Dutch to foreigners at Taalhuis Amsterdam and Nedles; thesis and study coaching; and also ballet classes for children of all ages.

In her spare time too, Willemijn follows her three passions: language, dance and history. She loves costume dramas (Downton Abbey is by far her favourite); dance performances; the books of Paulien Cornelisse, Geert Mak and Jane Austen; the Spanish language and last but not least: André Hazes!
