BACKGROUND: Eastern European Studies and Russian Language, journalism
Hi there, thank you for visiting my profile! After having studied many languages, I finally fell in love with my own mother tongue: Dutch. Since, I have been on the ‘other side’ of learning a foreign language so often, I have a keen understanding of what it is like to adapt to a language and culture that is (not yet) your own. I would love to help you feel comfortable getting around in Dutch, as it will expand your horizon. Making you feel at ease to speak will be my main goal.
Although I grew up in the south of the Netherlands (Eindhoven), I know Amsterdam like the back of my hand. I have lived in this ever buzzing city for 15 years. My favourite pastime is to sit at a terrace with a good coffee or glass of wine to watch the colourful crowd moving through our beautiful city. I am very familiar with the fascinating history and culture of Amsterdam and I cannot wait to share my pride with you. And perhaps discover new things myself!
I also work as an InCompany tutor for Flowently and I teach Dutch to children from an International School. When I am not teaching, I work in a wineshop with outstanding organic wines. My background is in Eastern Europe; I have a Masters degree in Eastern European studies with a special interest in Soviet Russia during the 60s and 70s. But, if that is not your thing I have so many other interests, I am sure we will find our common interest!
