Let's speak Dutch!
My name is Xira, I am 22-years-old and I study at land- and watermanagement. I enjoy travelling and learning about different cultures, as well as cooking, climbing, series/films and photography. For my studies I stayed four-months in Peru, where I learned to speak Spanish and how to communicate with people who do not speak English or Dutch.
Me gusta hablar con gente que vive en un país diferente al mío porque es muy interesante aprender sobre sus hábitos y tradiciones. Por ejemplo, en Perú, la familia es muy importante. También me encanta que la gente sea muy abierta y amable.
Me as a Teacher
I would like to help students improve their conversation skills. As a teacher, I want make sure that the student is comfortable to speak Dutch even if their level is beginner or advanced. When I studied English and Spanish, I found it scary to speak with natives as my grammar and vocabulary skills were very limited. But I learned that the more you speak, the better you become over time.
Zoals we in het Nederlands zeggen, oefening baart kunst!
My lessons & teaching style
My lessons will mainly be focused on improving communication skills by having conversations. I believe that immersion is the key to successfully learning a language.
Cancellation policy: If the student does not give at least 5 hours prior notice about cancelling a lesson, I will wait for 15 minutes in the classroom. The credits will then be transferred to the teacher.

It was my second lesson with Xira. I just started to learn Dutch, so I know almost nothing. Xira is a friendly, patient teacher, and I enjoy our lessons despite my beginner level.
