Tired of not knowing what to say and how to say it? Fed up with never finding the right words when you need them? Or don’t you just have the confidence to speak Dutch?
In my conversation classes you learn to express yourself with confidence. You expand your active vocabulary, meanwhile having a fun time.
You learn faster when you feel at ease.
That’s why we meet at a place where you can feel at home. Here you will practice your Dutch in small groups of just 4 or 5 students. This is your guarantee that you’ll get all the attention that you need. This is also the way for best learning Dutch. Why is that so?
Advantages of a small group
- everyone gets attention, even when you’re a bit shy (or too modest). You learn more, when you feel safe and at ease.
- you can take your time, when it is your turn to speak. You can make as many mistakes as you do – this is part of the process. People that make no mistakes, usually make nothing at all.
- we have real discussions on real topics. Conversation in small groups is easier to follow and to understand. You expand your vocabulary with words and phrases you can immediately use in real life.
The sessions are 100% Dutch
This means: no English allowed. Instead of switching to English when you can’t find the words, you can google a picture, use an online dictionary or express yourself in any other way you please. Use your imagination to spark the conversation, and let’s have fun!

What is the content of the conversation classes?
I offer general conversation classes, thematic conversation classes, and private sessions.
1. general conversation
For all levels. I challenge all students on their own level. We will talk about every day life, or all other topics that the students bring to the table.
The costs are 15,- per session (2 hours) for the general conversation, payable online. (max. 5 students). Reserve your spot through my Dutch Language Conversation MeetUp group, where you will be coupled with other MeetUp members.
Is your conversation level intermediate or up? Then you might be interested in the ongoing conversation group.
Do you want to form your own group with colleagues or with friends? I can offer this too. Contact me for information.
2. thematic conversation
These are Dutch conversation courses on the following themes:
The thematic courses are also 100% Dutch. The emphasis is still on the language, although you will learn a lot about the topic. We will do some practical exercises like meditation, yoga and play, as well.
The costs for a thematic conversation course is 95,- for 4 sessions of 2 hours, payable through my website. I didn’t set the dates yet, but you can reserve your spot (or show your interest) through the form on my website.
3. private classes
Do you rather have your own private conversation sessions? I offer these from 35,- an hour (depending on location).
It is cheaper to buy a ‘strippenkaart’. Then you pay 2 strips for a session of 75 minutes.
A ‘strippenkaart’ with 6 strips costs 100,- (validity 2 months) and a ‘strippenkaart’ with 10 strips costs 150,- (validity 3 months)
Are you a student of my ongoing conversation or study group? Then you pay 2 strips for a session of 90 minutes.
