How did Dutch Language Classes help you to make progress on your challenge during the training?:
Since I had to prepare for a new job in which I have now contact with Dutch speaking clients, it was very necessary to work on my Dutch. That’s why we worked on fluent conversations, using conversation card decks, language learning games and role plays, we read texts and watched documentaries about sales and marketing. Each training was different from the others.
I had the chance to talk about all the topics and use the vocabulary myself. This is how I started to talk more easily and step by step I gained self confidence. David encouraged me pushed me gently to try more each time.
I use it daily now. I speak Dutch with clients, on the phone, with my colleagues and with the Dutch speaking people of my family in law. Although my vocabulary still needs expansion, I already do a lot of conversations in Dutch and feel more and more comfortable with it.
Why should other Dutch language trainees decide to work with Dutch Language Classes?
Because it is the best way to learn Dutch!
