Enthusiastic world traveler - born and raised in the Nederlands
italki teacher since Nov 9, 2022
Hi I'm Jonathan, I'm 24 years old and I've been traveling with my wife in our Volkswagen camper since September 2022. Others would describe me as enthusiastic and outgoing. I like to make music, I play drums, bass guitar and different percussion myself. Also, I like to listen to music and hang out with friends. I like meeting new people and discovering new cultures. Last two years I worked as an youth worker on a camping and in a church.
Me as a Teacher
I am in favor of a personal approach that is in line with the interests and experiences of you as an student. What does motivate you? What things are you enthusiastic about, and what topics do interest you? I mainly want it to be interesting to get to know the Dutch language and culture, without it feeling like going to school. I am a generalist myself and can therefore chat about all kinds of different topics and I also find this interesting. I like to use examples from nowadays society such as news articles and videos.
My lessons & teaching style
The first conversation will mainly focus on getting to know each other and determining the level of your dutch.
I think the best way to learn a language is just by doing it. It starts with basic words like: "hallo" and "bedankt" (hello and thank you). From of there i will try to match your day to day life with words you would need.
We will try to keep track of your progress by undertaking a quizz now and then.
