Why should you join this course?aDutch course that isinformative and funlearn the hows and whys behind the language and really practice of what you learnbe part of a fun community of learners of Dutch worldwideDear fan of Dutch –yes, YOU! Once upon a time you set out to learn Dutch. But every course you find just turns out to be very bland with too many boxes with grammar rules and never-ending vocabulary lists… Well, guess what… I am a superb teacher of Dutch and I love to entertain. Shake those two up, and you get an interactive course, motivating you to really stick with it and have what you learn stick to you. My magic? In introducing daily topics and useful expressions, I subtly have you picking up basic grammar rules. Unlike most other language courses, I won’t devote entire chapters to complicated grammar rules, but will instead subtly weave them into the topic. And then there’s the Spaced Retention trick… Things will only stick if you quickly practice what you learn and keep doing that every so often. So get ready to not only listen to the voice on your screen, but also happily interact and answer any questions I have for you! And that, dear fan of Dutch, is how a course can be made educational, interactive and fun! Be sure to check out the course preview to find out more! Veel succes en veel plezier! Good luck and have fun! LeslieWHATOTHERSARESAYING…After taking several online courses this one has been the most helpful in understanding the basic rules of Dutch grammar and how to apply them in everyday scenarios. Other courses were dry, too stale and not fun so the information learned did not stick with me. I hope this course helps you as much as it did me! ++Great course; I really like how Leslie teaches both dutch and Flemish simultaneously. I really loved the het/de tips, it really has worked for me :)++Fun and easy learning!++I really like the explanations so far, and how easily you can learn new words.++I found this course really helpful in order to start learning Dutch. I definitely would like to have more courses with the same teacher because she understood that learning with fun is the best option for really absorb the language!
