Hoi! I'm Amarins originally from the Netherlands, but now living in Spain.
After helping my Australian boyfriend passing the Dutch 'inburgeringsexamen' and working as a coach in my previous job, teaching Dutch online was a logical step. Helping others improving their Dutch while working with different nationalities really brings me joy. Now I would like to help you!
My approach to teaching depends on you as a student and your goals . For my students who are just starting to learn Dutch I use an online program in which you can practice outside lessons as well. We also focus on speaking a lot so you can make connections with your friends, in-laws or neighbors. For my more experienced students, I adapt the lessons to your needs too. Whether it is preparing for an exam, wanting to master the different past tenses or needing more specific vocabulary for an internship, I am here to help you.
With my patience I encourage you to express yourself more confidently in Dutch while enjoying the process.
I would love it if you book a trial lesson now so we can start working together on reaching your Dutch goals!See Reviews From Students
My name is Carelys Perez, I am 25 years old and from the Netherlands. I have been tutoring Dutch for a couple of years and still enjoy doing it! I have a passion for languages and like to share this. I can speak multiple languages and even during my Iaw studies, I have focussed on the different language interpretations of the law on several occasions. I am curious and solution-oriented. That is why I believe that with an individual approach, I can help anyone learn the Dutch language!
A bit more about me personally: I enjoy writing (stories, plays, and music), acting, playing basketball, and making music.See Reviews From Students

Hi, I'm Marcha, a native Dutch tutor with over 20 years of working experience in the international corporate world.
I'm originally from the Netherlands but have been living internationally for many years and I adore studying and teaching languages. My true calling is teaching Dutch as a second language to professionals.
I bring to my students not only my background as a native Dutch speaker, but also my international corporate experience. I will help develop confidence, fluency and proper pronunciation.
I'm an expert at analysing my student's goals and customising their lessons to help them succeed. I specialize in both Dutch for business and general Dutch. If you are struggling with giving presentations we can practice together, if you need to improve your professional writing, then we will work on your structure and syntax. If you have an interview approaching. we'll do mock interviews. Together we'll build an engaging, individualised and structured plan tailored specifically to YOUR needs.

Hallo! I'm Pauline, and I would love to help you improve your Dutch. In my classes, the focus will be on conversation and interactive teaching. We will discuss what your needs and goals are, and adapt the classes so that they are perfect for you! This is what a typical class can include:
I'm a Belgian girl, and I love playing the violin, reading, decorating, going to museums & concerts and much more! I'm very interested in languages and cultures, so this is why I want to share mine with you. I taught myself Spanish, which gave me a lot of insight about what is helpful when learning a language. I hope to see you soon!

Hi! My name is Lize. I'm a native Dutch speaker and teacher based in Portugal. I teach groups and individuals, both online and in-person. Language learning is my passion and I love finding out what you're passionate about, so that we can incorporate it in our lessons. I strongly believe that learning happens best when my students are having a good time! Every lesson is unique and adapted to your unique needs.
Most of my students are learning Dutch because they're moving to the Netherlands or Flanders. I love helping people get ready for an international move. I've made one myself, so I know how daunting it can be! I also help many of my students prepare for official language exams. Whatever your background, level and language goals, I invite you to tell me about them in a free trial lesson so that we can figure out what I can do for you.

Bonjour à tous ! Hallo iedereen!
Being born in Belgium, I grew up in a multilingual (French/Dutch) context. Early on at school I already discovered my interest in language and culture which grew out to a passion for language, food and travel. I am now living abroad, teaching online classes.
I've been a teacher for 9 years now. I gathered my theoretical knowledge during my academic education (Master of Arts in Linguistics and Literature French/Spanish). However, it is mostly my practical experience which allows me to provide practical and hands-on tutoring (Specific Teacher Training in Languages and 9 years of experience as a teacher).

Hi! My name is Tanja, I'm 38 years old and I've been teaching Dutch since the beginning of 2019.
My teaching style highly depends on your level and goals. Are you a complete beginner? Then my lessons will be very structured providing you with all knowledge and skills needed for initial conversation. The more your levels grows, the more we'll try to get you out of your comfort zone and implement extracurricular activities.
If you are an intermediate speaker, I still like to use a book as a common thread to make sure that your grammar/sentence structure keep on improving and your 'internal dictionary' keeps on growing. However, we will loosen up much more. Eventually, the important thing is that you talk. Spontaneous conversation gives lots of opportunities to learn new USEFUL words and detect errors/difficulties.
Some of my advanced students like to keep on working with a book, usually the ones that enjoy studying grammar and doing more traditional homework. Others just want to practice conversation, either guided by discussing a wide range of topics that I will provide, or, some really just want to master the typical Dutch 'een beetje kletsen' (small talk).
I usually work with 'Nederlands in Gang' (A0-A2), 'NL in Actie' (A2-B1), 'NL op Niveau (B1-B2). Additionally, I will provide extra grammar practices and of course there is the internet filled with articles, videos, etc.
I hope to see you soon in class!See Reviews From Students
Are you ready to learn Dutch or Flemish, and stop wasting your time and money on methods that don't work? Then you came to the right place.
I use the video-conference system, so I can see my students and they can see me; we can talk, we make the exercises together.
As soon as it is possible, I advise my students to start reading books in the language they learn, and from the very beginning to start listening to the TV. It is a way of being surrounded by the language.
I always focus on using the right accent, and this helps. I have students with a perfect accent. Listening to the language also helps to open the hears to the sounds, making easier to understand. From the very beginning I also start with small conversations in each lesson.
I now have students all over the world who have been very successful in improving their language skills. Concerning the level my students attain, of course it depends on them. Together we'll see what your needs are and how fast you want to learn.See Reviews From Students
My lessons are constructed from a variety of exercises that I will assemble according to your needs. In the introduction we will establish your current level followed to marking your personal goal. In our 'real' lessons there is time for explanations on all the topics that concern you (grammar, vocabulary, orthography, speech, sentence construction, etc.), followed by some personalised exercises. We will do some of them together during our lessons, so I can support you and explain them. And then I will give the rest to you so you can practice at home in your own time. Together we will definitely tackle your goal.
I strive to talk Dutch in our lessons, but if need be I can give explanations in English or in German.
Hope to see you soon!See Reviews From Students

You can pay one lesson at a time, or buy in bulk for a discount (open a tutor's profile to see their pricing options).
We’re confident you’ll love learning via LanguaTalk. We're trusted by students all over the world because we're transparent. We ask students to rate each lesson, and we display reviews on tutors’ profiles.
99.8% of lesson ratings are 5 stars. Why? Because unlike other platforms, we accept only the top 10% of tutor applications.
To see our full FAQs or get help from our friendly team, click the '?' in the corner of the screen. You can also watch students talking about their experiences learning via LanguaTalk below.
1-on-1 lessons are perhaps the best way to improve speaking skills, and because of this many students use LanguaTalk to learn to speak Dutch fluently. That said, some people have other, more specific goals. Let your tutor know what your goals are and they'll tailor the lessons to your personal needs. Most tutors can help with any of the following:
Most of the Dutch tutors on our site are able to teach students of all levels. When you click on a tutor's profile you'll see if certain levels are not supported. For example, certain tutors cannot teach complete beginners.
Likewise, you can also see on the tutor's profile whether they're suitable for all ages. Lessons are sometimes taken via LanguaTalk to support school/college studies. Usually, the tutor will be able to customise the lessons to follow the material and topics covered in the student's exams. Note that as per our Terms & Conditions, students who are under 18 must get permission from a legal guardian before booking.
New to LanguaTalk? You'll have one credit for a free trial. Most tutors offer a trial for free. If they do not, they’ll offer a trial session at a discount compared to their usual hourly rate.
Trial sessions are 30 minutes. They allow you to assess whether the tutor is a good fit for you, and get a feel for learning online. The tutor will assess your level and aim to understand your needs and interests so that they can customise any lessons you decide to take. You'll be encouraged to speak in Dutch as much as possible, but of course you can speak in English too! Book a trial today to see if taking Dutch lessons on Zoom/Skype works well for you.
After your session, if you feel that the tutor isn’t quite right for you, you can simply book a trial with someone else.
Lessons are taught 1-on-1 so that you receive your tutor’s full attention and can make fast progress. Communicating via video call, you’ll be able to talk to your tutor and share learning materials as if you were in the same room.
The tutors vary in terms of their teaching methods, resources, experience, and personalities. So we suggest you look at several profiles to choose the best tutor for you. Whichever tutor you pick, they'll aim to tailor the lessons to your individual needs.
The vast majority of students take 55-minute lessons. But some tutors also provide the option of 30-minute lessons. If they do, you’ll see this noted on their profile (below their pricing and above the ‘Buy Lessons’ button).
55-minute lessons are recommended for most students. In general, we only suggest considering 30-minute lessons if they’re for your child, or you have an intermediate level and only want conversation practice.
The beauty of taking lessons online is that you can learn anytime, anywhere. To see tutors who are likely to fit your weekly schedule, use the availability filter at the top. Then when you see a tutor you like, check their profile calendar to make sure their time slots work for you. Some tutors have limited availability as they already have lots of students.
We want students to have an exceptional learning experience on LanguaTalk, so we only accept the very best tutor applications. Though we consider qualifications and experience, we place equal value on communication skills, personality and reviews from previous students. Almost all of the tutors are native speakers of the language they teach, and they can speak English too.
Each tutor is unique - they have different backgrounds, strengths, teaching methods and personalities. So we suggest you browse several profiles to find the right tutor for you.
Our booking system is designed to be easy to use. You can see tutors' available slots in your local time zone. If you choose to book lessons with a tutor, you'll be able to buy them one at a time, or purchase in bulk with a volume discount. You can pay securely by card on our website.
You can manually add bookings to your personal calendar, or if you use Google calendar, you can add bookings automatically with our syncing feature. You'll also be able to receive email reminders to help ensure you don't forget to turn up.
You can reschedule or cancel lessons in a couple of clicks. Please note that this can be done up to 24 hours before the lesson time. We have this policy to be fair to tutors, who cannot replace lessons at the last minute and need some form of income protection.
Dutch lessons via Zoom/Skype tend to be cheaper than face-to-face because the tutor doesn't need to travel. Online Dutch tutors may cost between $14 to $50 per hour, but be aware that very cheap tutors on certain websites may lack experience. On LanguaTalk, Dutch tutors typically charge between $14 and $40 per hour.
Of course, receiving Dutch tutoring via Zoom or Skype is not the cheapest way to learn; you could learn via a free app instead. But if you're serious about learning, nothing beats 1-on-1 Dutch lessons with a great teacher.
According to the Foreign Service Institute, if you already speak English, Dutch is one of the easiest languages to learn. The exact amount of time it will take you to become fluent will depend on many factors, such as your current level, your knowledge of similar languages, your capacity to learn, how you study, and how intensively you study. Some students who take multiple Dutch lessons on Zoom/Skype each week will be able to go from beginner to conversational fluency within a couple of months. Others will take longer. Combining 1-on-1 lessons with an online Dutch tutor with regular self-study is an effective way to learn Dutch fast.
Most tutors offer both Skype and Zoom as options for the lessons. If they only offer one of these, this will be stated on their profile. Both tools are free, easy to use and perfect for language learning. They allow you to do everything you would do in a physical classroom: speak, listen, read, write, and share learning materials. Your tutor will typically write corrections directly in the chat area so that you can later revise everything you’ve learnt.
Most Dutch tutors using Skype/Zoom also use other technologies and resources to enhance the learning experience, for example Google Docs (for real-time collaboration), videos, and PowerPoint slides. If you're unable to take the Dutch lessons via Zoom or Skype, please contact our support team and we’ll get in touch with the tutor you're interested in to see if they're able to use an alternative video technology, such as Google Meet.
Students sometimes feel unsure about learning online because they think it won't be as effective as learning face-to-face. But usually when they try it, they find that the experience is almost the same and they often build a strong relationship with their tutor.
Once you start a video call with your chosen Dutch tutor on Zoom/Skype, you’ll be able to communicate with them as if you were in the same room. They’ll usually also share learning resources with you (using Google Docs, YouTube etc.) and you’ll be able to collaborate in real-time.
There is no 'best way' to learn a language - it depends on many factors, such as your needs, level and budget. If you can't afford to take 1-on-1 Dutch lessons on Zoom/Skype, you can use a free app like Duolingo to build your vocab. And to improve your listening skills, you can try watching TV and listening to podcasts in Dutch. But to learn how to actually speak a language, you need to talk to a native speaker on a regular basis and receive accurate feedback so that you improve. If you want to make fast progress, it's best to take private lessons that are tailored to your personal needs by an experienced teacher.Arabic tutors | Chinese tutors | English tutors | French tutors | German tutors | Greek tutors | Italian tutors | Japanese tutors | Korean tutors | Portuguese tutors | Romanian tutors | Russian tutors | Spanish tutors | Swedish tutors | Thai tutors
