As non-native parents it is certainly not easy to teach your children Dutch or to help with the fluency of the new language. Who wants some... extra exercise for his children? I can help you with that. As their vocabulary becomes more and more extensive and their sentences become increasingly fluid, your children will get more and more self-confident. To speak well the Dutch language will surely benefit them now and later. Do your children need some help with their homework, especially with their Dutch, then I can help with that. Even as non-native-speaking adults, it is sometimes difficult to have enough exercise. That is why also adults who want to make progress in speaking the Dutch language are welcome here! We can practice the everyday language together. Read more

My wife is from Belgium and I decided to move to there after I met her. In the beginning it was difficult because I couldn't understand anything but with the help of a native Dutch speaker I improved and now me and my wife only speak Dutch.
I was so nervous for my exchange to the Netherlands because I couldn't speak any Dutch. After doing an online language course of 24 hours I was feeling way more secure about my stay in Europe.
