Hi, my name is Renate van Mieghem. I am a certified Dutch teacher since 2003. I really like the contact with all of my students and it makes me happy to make you develop yourself in that beautiful but sometimes harsh-to-learn-language: Dutch.
My background as a teacher
I studied the bachelor and master of "Dutch language, literature and culture" at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. Afterwards I got a post-master degree in teaching. I started teaching high school pupils. That was really fun: I worked with pupils in the age of 12 until 18 for almost 10 years.
In the years 2011-2012 I went back to class myself and I followed the program of BV NT2 to become a certified Dutch teacher for foreigners as well. I stepped into the world of foreign people trying to fit in in a new country by learning a second, foreign language. From that moment on I teach Dutch to adults from all over the world, and it really stole my heart. You people are so enthusiastic and studious!
The aim of all my Dutch courses is to help you connect to others. I learn you the Dutch language to release your ability to connect to and communicate with Dutch people. By learning you words, phrases and structures that helps you reveal your message for others: in Dutch.
I am excited about the Dutch courses of Bureau NL because they change the way you learn Dutch. You won't only be placed with a book and a teacher in a classroom. Bureau NL combines learning and doing at the same time. I take you out on voluntary field trips to practice in real life what I taught you in class.
Please join the Dutch Course that fit's you best!
"Bureau NL gives you the possibility to learn Dutch the way you want it, where you prefer it and when you like it."
