Example of grammar instruction video

Gergana Petrova

External Relations Officer RIPE NCC

“Overcoming the fear of speaking Dutch and making mistakes was a big challenge for me. My lessons with Joska helped a lot. We discuss various subjects and role-play situations. Joska is very easy to talk to and corrects the most important mistakes without stopping me at every word. The two other aspects from the lessons that stand out for me are the summary grammar sheets and the variety of exercises that we do. I would highly recommend the lessons for people with little time who want to see results quickly.”

Florencia Grasseli

Music therapist

“I will totally recommend Joska. She is a great teacher! I was looking for a Dutch private teacher but didn’t have much luck. Normally private lessons are not well structured. From the beginning she focused on my needs and came up with a plan, dates and objectives for every lesson. Being a therapist and needing to speak Dutch for my work, her background in psychology was of great use in our lessons. Because she understands what I was talking about. If you want to learn Dutch in a methodological form, to learn what YOU want and what fits YOUR needs, I will totally recommend her. She is also a very warm person which adds to the whole picture.”
