Aspa

Greek teacher – In my courses, in addition to teaching the language, I enjoy talking about the Greek culture, the people, and Greek cuisine. I like to bring those elements into the classroom to bring the material to life. For me, learning a language does not just involve gaining knowledge, it involves immersing yourself in a new culture and seeing the country and its people in a new light.

Ellen

Ellen

Dutch teacher – My motto is to get as much as possible óut of the student. I like to give space to speaking, doing so by asking a lot of questions and stimulating others to do the same. Besides that expanding vocabulary and grammar are part of the classes. Furthermore I find it important to stay close to the learning goals of the student. My programm is never the same but mostly adjusting to the group and current affairs.

Joost

Dutch teacher – I believe in playful and activating lessons, functional learning objectives and having fun while learning. Each one learns in his/her own way, and by learning together and simulating real life events I like to make the gap between the classroom and the real world as small as possible. What does your Dutch world look like, and how will we expand it?

Vasso

Greek teacher – Guiding people through their process of learning a new language is like looking at the world through a fresh set of eyes. I find teaching Greek especially enjoyable because it allows me to make good use of my nerdiness about my language and culture.
