Hello awesome people, My name is Johan Dietvorst.
I'm 30 years old and I live in The Netherlands.
My native language is Dutch. But I have a C2 English score and I'm also able to speak Spanish (I lived in Mexico for more than 4 years, so that's why). I speak some Japanese as well (JLPT N-4)!
I love Nature, Languages & Culture, Watches and Sports (especially skateboarding).
I love pets and still have a lot of tropical fishes.
I love to study and use different languages, because it makes it way easier to manage/survive in different countries. Besides that, it also broadens your view.
Ow, I love to draw and tattoo as well!
Me as a Teacher
What can you expect from me?
A fun way of learning and practising a language by just having fun conversations, using documents, pictures that you can describe and asking random fun questions.
In that way you'll see you already know more than you probably first expected!
I love languages and helping.. And apparently I'm pretty good at explaining something!
Growing up, I always had a fascination for other languages and people. In Holland you see a lot of different nationalities, so it wasn't hard to find people that spoke other languages.
I quickly learnt English and later Japanese and Spanish!
(I have kids, I help them with their Dutch, ESP & English as well! So I have XP with Children).

He is the coolest teacher on italki but at the same time the most attentive and professional one too.

Johan's knowledge about the Dutch language is truly impressive. His passion, positive energy and enthusiasm to share it make his lesson always entertaining and full of learning. Also he is very patient and manages to make me talk despite my low speaking level, which I appreciate a lot. And he has a ton of material that he can adapt to suit the way you want to practice. So I can only recommend him, whether you are a beginner or want to improve your current level, you'll be in good hands.

Really effective teacher. He acts out much of what he says, which helps very much with the interpretation if you don't know exactly every word. Very personable and friendly guy. Also very knows dutch grammar in and out. He is highly recommended
