My story

Wondering who I am? I'm happy to tell you about my passion for learning and teaching Dutch online!
I have been a teacher of Dutch as a Second Language for adults since 2001. Since 2010, I have also been developing online courses for Dutch. I'm passionate about the combination of both jobs! In 2018, I obtained a PhD on fully online learning of Dutch as a Second Language. I also collaborated on an online course in didactics NNT (Dutch non-native language) at KU Leuven, and developed a series of MOOCS for Dutch as a Foreign Language for Erasmus students. I am also a teacher trainer at KU Leuven, where I train future teachers of Dutch as a second language.
All these experiences taught me that learning Dutch online can be extremely effective and fun, and that learning can be personalized in an online environment just like in face-to-face classes. I look forward to guiding you through a flexible learning trajectory tailored to your personal needs. Dutch is top notch!
