Your mother tongue: Slovak
Your profession: Scientist – R&D
Month(s) and year you took the training: July-October 2015 with break in August
Specific challenge you wanted to work on during the training:
Even though I had a good theoretical background from Groep T classes, I was always little shy to speak Dutch and make mistakes. Therefore, my goal was to use what I have learned in Groep T and transform my passive knowledge into active.
Throughout the course we made series of diverse interactive exercises and activities in a small group. Part of exercises was also adjusted with respect to my professional background.
What was the result of the course you participated in?:
I became lot more confident to use Dutch in everyday life. Since I look for a new job this is a big plus for me and these days I even speak Dutch with hiring managers.
How did Dutch Language Classes help you to make progress on your challenge during the training?:
I got feedback on the exercises and activities we made. Based on the feedback I became more aware of bad habits/making certain mistakes. I learned what my weaker points were and now I am working on improvement.
How would you describe the training style of Dutch Language Classes?:
Dutch Language Classes encouraged and motivated me to speak in a very relaxed and friendly atmosphere. I always felt supported.
What do you find unique in the Dutch Language Classes approach?:
During the classes I had lot of fun while learning many new things. This made these Dutch lessons very enjoyable and relaxed. You almost don’t realize it but in fact I was learning a lot!
Why should other Dutch language trainees decide to work with Dutch Language Classes?:
It works! From a perfectionist being afraid of making mistakes I came to the level of active use of the language. Dutch Language Classes delivered the result I wished for.
Do you have some theoretical background and you wish to improve it and actually use the language? Then these classes are for you. Just say what you want to improve and Dutch Language Classes will make it work for you!
