Learn Dutch



Course description:

Afhankelijk van het niveau en de wensen van de student kan er gewerkt worden aan woordenschat, grammatica, lezen, schrijven, luisteren, conversatie, ... De lessen zijn er voor de student en daarom vind ik het belangrijk om als leerkracht flexibel te zijn wat betreft de leerstof. Stel gerust vragen!

Depending on the level and needs of the student we can work on vocabulary, grammar, reading, writing, listening, conversation, ... The lessons are meant to be for the student and that's why I believe it is important to be a flexible teacher. Feel free to ask questions!

Selon le niveau et les besoins de l'étudiant, nous pouvons travailler sur le vocabulaire, la grammaire, lire, écriver, écouter, la conversation, ... Les leçons doivent leur existence aux étudiants et c'est pourquoi que je crois qu'il est important d'être un enseignant flexible.

Teaching approach:

I am a good listener and can easily adapt to the student's level. I don't like the hierarchical aspect between student and teacher, but that doesn't mean I cannot be punctual and severe when I feel students need a little push in order to make more progress.

Hello! I am Sven, born in a city close to Brussels and currently living in the capital. Seeing a student making progress is very satisfactory and therefore I believe being a teacher is a great job. My hobbies are reading, cycling, traveling, exploring cities and listening to all sorts of music.

Bonjour! Je suis Sven et j'habite à Bruxelles. Voir le progrès d'un élève est très satisfaisant et pour cela je crois être un enseignant est un métier merveilleux. Mes hobbies sont la lecture, le cyclisme, les voyages, découvrir des villes et écouter toutes sortes de musique.

Hallo, ik ben Sven en ik woon in Brussel. Een student progressie zien maken geeft veel voldoening en daarom ben ik ervan overtuigd dat leerkracht zijn een fantastisch beroep is. Mijn hobbies zijn lezen, fietsen, reizen, steden ontdekken en allerlei soorten muziek beluisteren.

I used to be an English tutor when I was on a one year study exchange in Shanghai (2013-2014). After that, I completed my studies in Brussels while teaching Dutch to kids from the age of 5 till the age of 13. Last April I moved to Saint-Louis in Senegal for two months in order to teach English and Philosophy to adolescents and young adults.
