Learn the language of your choice, wherever and whenever you want. We make use of all the study books you may already have, or will advise you to purchase certain books if necessary.

Flowently has a wide portfolio of qualified tutors and you can choose your own tutor. It is up to you to decide to do all your sessions with the same tutor or change tutor every session. Furthermore, you can choose between a live session or a lesson via Skype. Every tutor has their own expertise and way of teaching.

Flowently encourages to get out of your comfort zone and start the challenge of improving your language skills outside of your home. Which is why our sessions take place in realistic language surroundings, such as in a café, a library, at university, on the street, in a museum, a park or somewhere else in the city. If you wish to have the session at home, please get in touch at info@flowently.com.

Book your first session with one of our tutors! Improve your pronunciation by practicing in real live situations. During your session you can learn more about accents, intonations, word order and expressions. If you wish to start learning before your session, check-out the booklet ‘Taaltempo Nederlands’ in our online store. 

Our tutors are language experts but not fulltime language teachers. For a good start and solid foundation we match you to someone who is skilled in this specifically. If there is a tutor who also teaches absolute beginners in your town, then you can book a first live session with him or her all the same.

Flowently’s sessions and special topics are appropriate for absolutely all language levels; from beginner, to intermediate up to advanced. Also for all other specific language subjects.

A Flowently tutor is a highly educated (HBO/University) tutor, who has done a Flowently Tutor Training. All of our tutors are enthusiastic and skilled in bringing your language skills to a higher level. Some tutors have studied languages or are studying to become teachers ‘Dutch as a second language.’

We can recommend a qualified teacher when you have specific goals. For this, different rates apply. In-company training sessions are always given by a qualified teacher, usually in combination with live tutor sessions.

In order to have a chat, you need to have (sub-) conscious knowledge of grammar. Learning a different language is in the first place becoming aware of your own language and seeing the similarities and differences. Flowently uses the method Taal Tempo in order to improve speech skills, through this booklet you will automatically run into question about word order, conjugations of various verbs, ‘de’ and ‘het’ and more. Flowently offers a complete language package with a focus on improving conversational skills because this is the least developed and hardest to learn.

The founder of Flowently has over seventeen years of experience in giving language trainings to expats and is the point of contact for all tutors and clients/students. Flowently stands for personal approach and quality. All tutors receive trainings and are supervised. The client/student receives an evaluation request after each session. All remarks, questions and/or feedback are welcome.

When you have a number of people that is interested in doing group sessions, we would love to see what we could do for you. Normally, we offer sessions for 1 or 2 persons at a time only.
