ALISON F. - 55 - FROM NEWARK - DUTCH GROUP LESSONS IN NOTTINGHAM

I lived in Holland, just North of Amsterdam for 5 years, over 30 years ago and I visit friends there at least once a year. My Dutch is very rusty, I get by (kind of!) but I wanted to improve so that I could hold conversations without getting frustrated, and confused, as I love Holland so.

For this year's Mother’s Day present, my daughter, Becky who was born in Holland and lived there until he was 2, bought us both a 'taster' lesson with Jelle. We decided we loved it so much that we would go together every week for a lesson from then on.

The lesson's are great fun (well I have a lot of fun!) informative, challenging and, hopefully, improving my Dutch speech, understanding, writing and pronunciation.

The interactive learning tool that supports our lessons is a great way to revise what we have learnt and is quite addictive! It can be accessed via the computer or your mobile and its quirky style is also a lot of fun. I particularly like the personalisation as it is Jelle's voice pronouncing the words which is cool. You can dip in and do a level about a specific area of the language or revise work you have previously done. There's also a leader board for those who are a bit competitive!

Jelle's very personal style, patience and sense of humour make the hour fly by. The one-to-one teaching style suits me as he tailors the lesson to strengths and weaknesses. Homework is set (groan) but it usually includes a fun listening exercise which I enjoy.

I would highly recommend Jelle to anyone wanting to learn Dutch, at whatever level. I'm already looking forward to going back to Amsterdam next year and being able to speak and understand the language better which will enhance an already enjoyable experience.

Prettige weekend verder!

BECKY E. - 30 - FROM NOTTINGHAM - DUTCH GROUP LESSONS IN NOTTINGHAM

I am having Dutch lessons with my mother. I was born in Holland and I have a lot of Dutch family. I hope to move over there at some point and I would like to be confident in the language when I do - both for my career and to talk naturally with my grandparents. 

I was delighted to find a tutor in such close proximity and was impressed with the website- Jelle also had high reviews on firsttutor.com. I've been loving the lessons so far, they are very in depth with some great knowledge behind how words are structured etc. to get a better grasp on sounds, spelling and how to string sentences together correctly. I would definitely recommend!

VALENTINA B . - 22 - FROM ROTTERDAM - DUTCH SKYPE LESSONS

My name is Valentina and I have been learning Dutch for the past 6 months. I started out with face-to-face lessons in Nottingham, but then moved to Rotterdam (The Netherlands) and I am now doing Skype lessons with Jelle. My family is Dutch and I already knew how to speak the Dutch language, but I felt that I needed help with reading, writing and grammar. I choose to take lessons with Dutch 4 Beginners because it was one-to-one tutoring that was based around your specificMy learning needs. I am sincerely enjoying my sessions and find that I am definitely progressing in my studies. I would defiantly recommend taking Dutch lessons with Dutch 4 Beginners as Jelle makes the lessons interesting, engaging and easy to follow.

HANNAH B . - 30 - FROM COVENTRY - PRIVATE DUTCH LESSONS VIA SKYPE

I'm learning Dutch because I'm married to a Dutchman and want to be able to speak more Dutch when we are in the Netherlands. I have always enjoyed language learning and did a degree in Classics and studied Latin and Greek - I enjoy the process of learning languages and find it very satisfying so I am glad to have the opportunity to do it again!

I wanted to have lessons to provide structure to my language learning and also to give me an incentive to keep learning week by week. I chose to do lessons with Jelle because his programme was recommended by the Dutch Embassy in London. I couldn't find anyone local to do lessons with and his skype programme seemed ideal.

Jelle is a really good teacher - he provides fantastic resources, is clear and thorough, but also really relaxed and friendly. As a teacher myself I have been impressed by the variety of the activities and resources he produces and his ability to engage interest even when it's late in the evening and I'm tired after a long day!

I would definitely recommend lessons with Jelle - he really goes out of his way to make sure his lessons suit his learners needs and is sure to give you a great start with the language.

MATTHEW H. - 21 - FROM SHEFFIELD - PRIVATE DUTCH LESSONS IN NOTTINGHAM

I live in Sheffield and travel to Nottingham to have lessons with Dutch 4 Beginners. I am an engineering student in Sheffield who is planning to spend time living in the Netherlands during an internship and also possibly studying there at postgraduate level. I decided therefore that I would start learning Dutch in preparation for me moving there. Learning the language has already helped me become more accustomed to the Dutch culture and I have also found that it helps make my application stand out when being considered for internship opportunities.

Dutch 4 Beginners stood out to me when I was looking to learn Dutch due to the convenient lesson times, location and reasonable price which was unmatchable elsewhere. Jelle is a very passionate and talented teacher who makes the daunting prospect of learning a language, engaging and attainable regardless of your current proficiency levels. The lessons are conducted in an interesting yet comfortable manner which when coupled with the additional online resources has given me all I require to advance my language skills.

Because of my experience, I would not hesitate to recommend Jelle for language tuition and I can assure you that you will be astounded with the levels of understanding and progress you can make.

TOM & LOUISA - 30 & 28 - FROM NOTTINGHAM - DUTCH COUPLE LESSONS IN NOTTINGHAM

We started learning Dutch as we are hoping to move to the Netherlands in the future. Jelle has patiently taken us from the very basics and given us the confidence to speak the language, and a solid foundation towards fully understanding Dutch.

Our lessons with Jelle are always fun and he manages to present even the most complex subjects in a manner you can understand. He explains things fully and always makes sure we understand the lesson before moving on.

We would wholeheartedly recommend lessons with Jelle - we are finding learning Dutch more rewarding as we go on.

ISABELLA B. - 31 - FROM AMSTERDAM - PRIVATE DUTCH LESSONS IN NOTTINGHAM

I live in Amsterdam, but I was working in Nottingham for a number of months. While being in Nottingham I decided to learn Dutch, because I wanted to feel more connected to the people in the Netherlands and with the Dutch culture. I don’t want to feel like a tourist all the time.

I found Dutch 4 Beginners’s classes to be very organized and straight forward with a simple clear lesson format of study material with grammar, listening, writing and reading.

Jelle really made me feel comfortable during every lesson. I would recommend to learn Dutch with Jelle, because Jelle is professional, punctual, funny and very dedicated and committed to my study path.

JOHN B. - 23 - FROM LONDON - PRIVATE DUTCH LESSONS VIA SKYPE

I am currently learning Dutch via Skype with Dutch 4 Beginners for two reasons - to add Dutch to my current credentials (with the hope of increasing my potential employability) and to fulfil thirst for knowledge that is applicable to everyday situations where it can be used in both the breaking down of social barriers as well as just for having a bit of fun! After making friends in the Netherlands, I decided to learn Dutch. I initially did some self-study, but the next logical step after scouring YouTube for helpful starter videos and engaging in some basic small talk with Dutch and Belgian tourists passing through Kings Cross station was to get in contact with an expert and commit to some kind of regimented learning set up.

I have found in Dutch 4 Beginners a high level of professionalism equalled with a great degree of personality. I am finding the lessons both challenging as well as interesting. Seemingly mundane topics have been brought to life through a combination of well thought out lesson structures as well as the autonomy that is granted within them to apply studied principles to areas of personal interest.

I would not hesitate to recommend Dutch 4 Beginners to anyone taking the plunge and throwing themselves head first into this complex and wonderful language, whether this be someone of a similar age and position to myself or someone starting completely from scratch at a later stage in life. Why is this? For the simple reason that Dutch 4 Beginners is a dedicated and excellent service that has taken a sprout of interest and turned it into a blossoming hobby!
