Dutch Speaking Lessons for Beginners and Beyond

Whether you're a beginner or not, I can help you to improve your Dutch speaking skills. (Click »here to learn more about me.) The lessons I offer are fully focused on improving your ability to speak Dutch. To master a language one needs to learn basically 4 language skills: receptive skills (listening & reading) and productive skills (writing & speaking). The lessons I offer focus mainly on improving speaking skills, but of course, at the same time, you will also improve your listening skills. And on top of that, you will also get to improve your reading skills. Let me explain below.

During my private lessons we will try to speak Dutch as much as possible, and this of course depends on your level. The more Dutch you understand, the more Dutch will be spoken. But sometimes, when Dutch words, sentences, questions aren't understood, I will use English to clarify. Or, depending on the situation, I will write down Dutch words or phrases in the chat box. There's also the possibility that I will explain some grammar. That being said, the private lessons I offer are mainly directed at speaking. Meaning, you will practice forming Dutch sentences on the fly. This is what improving productive (speaking) skills is all about. You will produce words and sentences yourself. This is a very useful and important part of learning a language.

Meet the Teacher

Hi! My name is Ronald, a native speaker from the Netherlands. I have been teaching Dutch for over 8 years now.

Before being active as a Dutch teacher, I studied educational theory and gained experience in creating learning materials and exercises. I worked for several companies that specialized in developing educational products and projects for public schools and NGOs.

For many years now I have also been a language enthusiast. I'm mostly interested in Chinese, Korean and Japanese. Learning other languages also helps me to understand better what language learners need in order to improve their language skills.

I consider myself as someone who's patient, friendly, helpful, sincere, solution-oriented and open-minded.
