I’m looking forward to help people who are in the same situation as I was before, new to a language!

I now work as a French language trainer, keen on teaching how you can enhance your impact in French, especially in a business context. Students describe me as an enthusiastic coach, that provides “more” than (business) French lessons. I am fascinated by the African continent, I often travel there and follow its geopolitics closely. À très bientôt!

Hello everyone, I´m Laura, native Italian teacher based in Berlin.

During my classes we’ll deal with daily conversation topics – such as talking about our free time, ordering something at the bar or booking a room – that we’ll perform and simulate acting like real.  I can also provide material on our funny dialectal forms, different from region to region. I´d be glad to support you in this learning challenge. Hope to hear back from you soon!

My main aim in the lessons is to guide my students to an independent stage where they can communicate effectively and comfortably with the language they require. Whether it’s general English/Dutch, exam preparation, or for specific (business) purposes, the content of my lessons are always tailor-made to meet the needs and goals of my students continuously while considering their learning abilities.

Samuel

Trainer Dutch

Hello! I am a language and culture enthusiast and I love helping others to find their way in a foreign tongue. I grew up in Spain and learnt Dutch at an early age. Thanks to that experience, I can recognize well where the difficulties are that new speakers face when learning this language. I am convinced that no language can be learnt as an empty and formal structure. Instead, I want to help you to get familiar with Dutch as an open language in which your ideas and experiences can find their expression. While talking about topics that interest you, I would like to guide you until you master the conversation on your own.

Naomi

Trainer Dutch

Hello, my name is Naomi and I am a Dutch trainer at Flowently. I have a degree in Dutch Language and Culture, as well as Conflict Resolution and Governance. Language to me is not just grammar and vocab, it is a way to express yourself. This is why I love teaching Dutch and enjoy helping out everyone that wants to be able to participate in Dutch society and learn more about Dutch culture. As I am currently in Argentina learning Spanish myself, I know from experience that learning a language can be challenging and doesn’t happen overnight. But I am here to help and excited to teach Flowently students not only the basic grammar and vocab but also the inside tricks and expressions from the Dutch language that you don’t always find in a regular textbook.’

I love learning them myself, and greatly enjoy sharing this enthusiasm with others as one of Flowently’s in-company trainers and private tutors.

Franka

Trainer Dutch

My name is Franka, besides finishing my MA in philosophy I work as a tutor for Flowently. In my late teens and early twenties I moved to Norway and then to Sweden to start my bachelor there –in Swedish. 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, an enriching new world can open itself. Nowadays Norwegian, Swedish and Spanish are all languages I have strong emotional connections with. I like to encourage my students to forge a personal bond with the new language, so they can reach a point where it transforms from a mere vehicle for communication into an exciting new home.

Coert

Trainer Dutch

Hi! My name is Coert and I am an experienced trainer in Dutch as a first and second language. When an individual moves to another country, that person experiences a wide variety of changes: learning the language of the ‘new’ country certainly is a great help in coping with these changes. In my experience, coming to grips with the language helps to understand the quirks and challenges of the ‘new’ country. And the Netherlands has many of those to offer! I always challenge my students, to leave their ‘bubble’ of international business or international students and meet ‘real Dutchmen’. I am looking forward to take you on your journey of discovering the Netherlands and the Dutch.
