Why should you choose me? Take a look at what people say who have taken online classes with me.

Book lessons with me and

- prepare Dutch exams "Basisinburgering A1" and "Inburgeringsexamen A2". Your full commitment and my energetic, professional approach are the winning combination to help you succeed at once!

- learn Dutch because you live in the Netherlands (or are planning to move there) and still don’t speak the language properly or haven’t started yet. You’ll enjoy your environment more!

- learn Italian for work or because you will move to this beautiful country or simply because you just love it. Let me help you experience the language!

- study Spanish for pleasure, work or because you have to prepare an exam for school and you need to get confident to perform optimally

- get confident in useful daily conversations, meetings at work, exams, and presentations

- overcome the fear of failure; if you have learning problems, feel shy or need a boost of energy you’ll get confident enough to achieve your goals

My lessons are based on conversations. My method is to help you practice the language from the very beginning in spontaneous and direct conversations, using often role plays.

With books, articles, songs, and other interesting and stimulating material I will encourage conversation, develop grammar in a simpler way, and improve pronunciation.

Learning a foreign language is not a matter of doing much effort, but rather of being consistent, enjoying the lessons and allowing your intuition to work with you. You will book immediate results while having fun!

I've been teaching Dutch, Spanish and Italian for many years, in The Netherlands, for private institutes, for the integration of foreigners into society (Inburgering), and online from Italy, where I currently live.

Contact me for a free trial and let me know how I can help you.

CANCELATION POLICY
If you cancel a reservation please do it at least 24 hours before the session

Elena is an excellent teacher and a very nice person. I have been training in Spanish with Elena for quite some time now after her being recommended to me by a friend, and have consistently been very pleased with our lessons. While I do not consider myself to be very good at learning foreign languages, Elena is very patient and adapts the lessons to my ability, making me feel at ease. In fact, I find her to be extremely skilled at assessing exactly where I am at any given time with respect to my individual learning situation, and structuring the lessons accordingly. I think I probably would have given up trying to learn Spanish had I not began my study with Elena; and that would have been a shame in view of where I am now with the language. Because of Elena's skilled help, I am extremely pleased to not only be conversant in basic Spanish, but also have confidence that I will one day reach full proficiency with the language. No other learning method I tried before meeting Elena compares to the one-on-one, personalized instruction I receive from her, which comprises reading; writing; developmental exercises; and most importantly, conversation. To be able to look at Spanish now and have it appear largely familiar is extremely satisfying. I even plan to study Italian with Elena after reaching my desired level in Spanish. These are not things I ever imagined would occur at the beginning stages of my studies. I am a native English speaker and find Elena's English to be excellent. She had no difficulty instructing me from the very beginning levels where it was necessary that a lot of English be spoken in our lessons, to where we are now with much less English being spoken. The friend who recommended Elena to me learned Dutch from her, and is equally pleased with their experience. I would not hesitate to learn from Elena any of the languages she teaches. I give Elena my highest recommendations and thank her for all the help she has provided me.

Want to learn French, English or Swedish? I will tailor lessons specifically adapted to what you would like to learn, practice, understand or find out about. I'm an interpreter and translator, and I've studied languages my whole life (and still do), and I also teach. It is incredibly rewarding to see my students progress in their learning! Whether you want to focus on reaching a specific level, are trying to brush up a language you studied previously or want to be able to communicate in a new country, I can help you. Send me a message, and we'll get started!

Noelia is a highly professional teacher that I would recommend to any level student. She is organized and very knowledgeable, and does an excellent job explaining concepts such as grammar and expressions. She will also work with you to develop the particular skills you want to improve and gather relevant materials ahead of time so that you can practice them at home and then work on them together in class.

Bonjour,

My name is Hermione.

I have been working in English Language Teaching (ELT) since 2012. I have taught General English, Business English and Exam Preparation courses to learners of all ages and levels.

I have worked as an English teacher in England, France and Greece and as a corporate trainer on Amazon, France.

I have more than 6 years of experience in Education management. I have a BA in Balkan Studies and an MBA.

My native language is Greek and I can also speak German and Romanian. I am currently working on improving my French.

As a teacher, I believe every student deserves the opportunity to learn at their own individual pace, let curiosity direct their learning, and participate in hands-on activities that encourage growth.

My lessons are fun, creative, challenging and rewarding. I really like to tailor my lessons to suit your needs, motivation and interests.

Always remember that to learn a language is to have one more window to look at the world.

Hope to see you soon in my class!

(I ONLY OFFER GROUP CLASSES ON HERE :) )

Hello, my name is Rebecca Rygaard.
Recently graduated as a teacher of Danish and English for the primary and lower secondary schools in Denmark, according to the Bachelor's Degree Program in Education, from University College Copenhagen.

I am born and raised in Denmark, and am a native speaker of Danish.

In my teaching I use a communicative approach, focused on having us communicate with each other and produce language to learn it. We will learn both from "input" (what we hear, read) and "output" (what we say, write).

This communicative approach will be focused on "real life" and authentic situations - that means that I'll actually base the teaching on my students lives. I.e. we could be talking about what has brought you to want to learn Danish. There will be authentic language only in this class - not language about hypothetical situations, that you might not ever need.

As part of this method, we'll be using task-based learning - you'll often learn the language through "tasks" in my class, with the point that you'll have to use communication, in cooperation with your peers (or me) to solve them. It's a lot of fun, I guarantee.

You will also be learning about the Danish culture, as I believe culture and language go together, and one cannot be understood without the other (I very much look forward to introducing you to Danish customs, traditions and food).

I'll be focused on your progress, rather your 'errors', as I don't believe in teaching a language by focusing on student's "mistakes", but on their potential. There is an "interlanguage" that is the language that emerge in between your original language, and the language you're trying to learn. And it is only normal that this language is a bit of a mix, that is ever-evolving.

With me, you'll also have the important advantage that I am both a teacher of English and Danish, and therefore know how the languages correlate.

I've learned about all of these aspects "the communicative approach", "task-based learning", "cultural studies" and "interlanguage" and a "functional view on language learning", as a part of my education, and I know they are all a part of recent research in the field.

I have prepared a lesson plan for beginners - which can both be used for group- and single lessons. But I can also create a specifically crafted lesson plan just for you and your needs/level, or if you already know Danish, but just want to improve it.

I hope we meet, and look forward to helping you learn some Danish :)

Rebecca

Nicholas teaches English since 15 years to any level and age. He adaptes his lessons according student needs and demands. He uses the 3 P teaching method (Presentation, Production, Practice) which enables the student to work his/her English grammar and vocabulary and then use them to improve his/her pronunciation and speak fluently English . He uses different tools as book, exercises, videos or games. I recommend him !

In recent years I have worked as an Academic Director at a Language School in northern Spain. My job duties there included designing intensive Spanish & English courses for beginners’, intermediate and advanced levels, as well as teaching both on-site and via Skype. This constant interest has allowed me to become familiar with techniques and tools that are essential in today´s second language learning, such as the materials used by the Cervantes Institute and the most renowned publications and blogs in the field of language teaching. Most particularly, I have made extensive use of audiovisuals and creative writing activities in order to develop consistent, effective courses. 


As an on-line teacher, I have steadily used different technology applications in language learning. My tasks as a teacher included setting homework and giving feedback to my students, according to their needs, on a regular basis, as well as keeping accurate register of their attendance and progress. 


Graduated in Hispanic Philology and Masters in Applied French, I have always kept up with my teaching training and have recently completed a Cambridge CELTA course for English teachers This further training has provided me with the familiarity to different teaching methodologies, which have proven to be extremely useful in my classes. 

My hobbies: art cinema, hiking, reading and watching and playing basketball.

I wanted to refresh and improve my Spanish and I contacted Inigo because he 's certified in luinguistic. Inigo is very patient, professional and helpful. He provides well structured lessons, in a very friendly and good atmosphere which is really favorable for learning a foreign language. The lesson material is built around several support such as text, audio, video, etc. You can't be bored and it's nice to switch between the different materials along the hour. He's also fluent in French and English so he can switch from a language to another for any explanation if needed. I really enjoy my lessons with him and I definitely recommand him!

Hello! I’m María, an experienced teacher from Spain currently living in Belgium. I love learning foreign languages and teaching Spanish is my passion!

I think MOTIVATION is the key to an effective learning experience, and therefore my classes will be designed according to your needs and preferences. My goal is for you to fulfill your objectives! We will together create a plan to make that happen, and negotiate which materials to use. You will be in charge of your own learning experience! I also consider really important to have a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere in class.

I hold a bachelor’s degree in Spanish Language and Literature, a Master’s degree in Linguistics and a certificate in teaching Spanish as a foreign language. I have experience in both face-to-face and online classes, with teenagers, young people and adults.

I consider myself a hard-worker, friendly, emphatic and kind person. I look forward to meeting you and being able to help you improve your Spanish! See you at the trial lesson!

Hello everyone! My name is Ainhoa, I am Spanish and I live in Bilbao, a city in northern Spain. I am an online Spanish teacher certified by ELE international and I have a year of experience teaching private lessons.

Thanks to my studies and experience, I am aware of how important it is to adapt the classes to the needs of my students and that they enjoy learning. Therefore, I adapt the classes so that my students can learn to the fullest.

In addition, although my classes are in Spanish, I can use English whenever necessary as I have a good level. I love languages, travel and learn from other cultures.

If you want to start learning Spanish, improve your level, prepare for DELE exams or learn Spanish because you like it, contact me and I will design a plan adapted to you.

See you in class!
