Professional Dutch teacher offering lessons, conversation practice and NT2 exam preparation
italki teacher since Sep 2, 2022
Hallo! I'm Lize and languages are my passion. I grew up speaking Flemish, the Belgian variety of Dutch, but I've lived in the Netherlands as well so I'm comfortable speaking both varieties of the language. I learned six foreign languages so you can say that I'm very familiar with the challenges you can encounter when learning a new language. I live in Portugal, which means that I have first-hand experience with what it's like moving to a new country and learning a new language.
Me as a Teacher
I work as a freelance Dutch teacher. I teach groups and individuals, online and in person. My students have different levels, backgrounds and language goals. I find it incredibly gratifying to figure out how I can best help every individual student. I currently have 500+ hours of teaching experience, and am hoping to add many more happy students to my count!
My lessons & teaching style
For me it is very important that my students are having a good time during our classes. I want to know what you're passionate about, so that I can integrate it in our classes. I aim for a good balance between theory and practice and I make sure to train reading, listening, speaking and writing skills. If needed, I can also help you prepare for the official NT2 exam.
I usually use standard Dutch in my classes as it's easily understood in both Belgium and the Netherlands. However, if you're interested in learning more about the peculiarities of Flemish, I'd be happy to help you with that as well.
For new students, please book a trial class or 30 minute class so we can get to know each other.
