My name is Bart and I have a passion for language and coaching/teaching. Having lived in several different countries I know how challenging it can be to learn a new language and to put it into practice. Especially Dutch, with it's unusual pronunciations and structures. During our lessons I will explain how to deal with such issues and show you that Dutch is actually quite a structured language and a lot less complicated that often suggested.
I am a positive and optimistic person and this is also how I teach. I focus on how to do things right rather than wasting energy on why things are wrong. This creates a nice learning atmosphere and it also makes the course much more productive. I like to have an open communication with my students and encourage them to let me know what their difficulties are and what they want to improve.
When learning a language it is very important that you can quickly put into practice what you have learned. This naturally motivates you to learn more. For that reason I find it important that it is clear from the beginning what the language needs and wishes of my students are so we can work towards your goals in an effective way and make sure you are able to apply what you have learned as soon as possible.
We are enjoying perfect lessons from Bart. I really enjoy my classes with Bart! Every lesson is tailor made - we work on my weak points and practice a lot. Always ready to explain what I don't understand but does it in Dutch.
Bart prepared me for my Inburgering exam. I was amazed to see such a good progress in my Dutch in such a short span. Even my Dutch friends could not believe that I could already start talking in Dutch.
