At the University of Utrecht I got my Master degree in Organizational Psychology. In this master I learned how to coach and train adults in organizations. During my studies I was a mentor of first year students (groups of 30 students) and helped them getting introduced at the university. Also I was a guide of foreign students in the city of Utrecht for 3 years. Since January 2009 I live in Shanghai. Part-time I own a consultancy firm for Dutch companies that want to enter China, and part-time I teach Dutch to Chinese people.
Most adults tend to show the most progress when presented with a practical combination of reading, writing, listening and speaking, a practical mix of English and the language being learned, Dutch, and a focus on useful aspects of Dutch that they can use from the very start.
