Approach & methodology

The aim of Kat's lessons is to help and encourage students to use Dutch in their everyday life and at work. The main focus is on spoken communication, interaction and listening comprehension. Rather than teaching courses with big groups of students, I teach individuals and small groups with max. 5 students to be able to give as much personal feedback and attention to the individual students as possible. I vary teaching methods and materials to maintain students' attention, to encourage them and to facilitate their learning process. Having fun while learning and attending Dutch lessons is a very important part of the concept.
