My methods and tools depend on what my students want to learn. For example, if you are a beginner, the main focus will be on pronunciation, grammar and vocabulary so that you can speak about yourself and know the basics of how to start a conversation. For more experienced speakers, we could talk about more difficult grammar topics and exercises to practise, trying to build more complex and longer sentences in Dutch. I always discuss this with every new student before we start a new class, so that you will feel motivated and stay interested.
Kamēr citi tikai domā un sapņo, Tu jau dari! Iemīlejies valodu apguves procesā un padari to par tavu ikdienas rutīnu.
During my studies, I was a volunteer at a school for refugees who had to learn Dutch. Although I saw most people struggle with the language and the pronunciation in particular, I was amazed by their perseverance and their grateful attitude towards the teachers. This motivated me to do the same as I moved to Germany, but then for refugees who had to learn German. I liked it so much that I wanted to make it my profession to teach people my native language. Up to the present day, I enjoy teaching people from all over the world, with various backgrounds and learning goals.
