Steven

Trainer Dutch

Hello there. My name is Steven and I’m what you might call a “lingthusiast” (very enthusiastic about languages). I love learning them myself, and greatly enjoy sharing this enthusiasm with others as one of Flowently’s in-company trainers and private tutors. Having spent several years abroad, I know how valuable -and challenging- it can be to understand the local language. Dutch is certainly a challenge, so I will do my best to make it a fun one.

Franka

Trainer Dutch

My name is Franka, besides finishing my MA in philosophy I work as a Dutch tutor for Flowently. In my late teens, I moved to Norway, two years later I moved to Sweden to start my bachelor’s there –in Swedish. Unfamiliar with the culture and without access to any language classes I had to figure everything out myself. So I know a thing or two about the challenges of being thrown into a new culture and language. But I also know that if one gets over the initial fear of sticking out and approaches the unknown with curiosity and playfulness, a whole enriching new world can open itself. Nowadays Norwegian, Swedish and Spanish are all languages I have strong emotional connections with, and I am currently working on mastering some Portuguese. I like to encourage my students to forge a personal bond with this new language and culture, and I love helping them to reach the point where the language transforms from a mere vehicle for communication into an exciting new home.
