Hello! I'm Lana. I'm a student with a passion for learning new languages. As of right now I'm studying Communication and Multimedia Design at University. Something I've always thought of was teaching others my own language, Dutch. And this is why I'm on here right now. I would love to help you achieve your goals in my language and I want to help you further in your language journey.
Me as a Teacher
I will have lessons prepared for ultimate beginners and for the more intermediate learners. I have images to describe, topics to discuss and grammar to discuss as well. You can always bring your own homework, coursework or books to my lessons. As well as any questions or goals you might have with the Dutch language. I don't judge, we will make sure it stays casual, as I'm not a professional tutor but a community tutor. Together without judgement, we will work on your pronunciation and personal goals. I'm patient and I will explain again if you need me to, I'll always repeat something in English or explain it in English if needed, because I speak both Dutch and English fluently.
My lessons & teaching style
I teach adults only. I have lessons ranging in level between beginner and intermediate. Lessons for ultimate beginners and beginners in Dutch are where we will learn how to start speaking in Dutch at your own pace without judgement, where I will correct your pronunciation and I will structure the lessons with grammatical content but also with some speaking. For the more intermediate learner we can discuss images, daily topics, the news or a text you made as homework. I do give out homework in the form of writing and reading exercises at the end of the class. After every class I will give the student a file with their personal corrections, new vocabulary and points to work on.
