Vision of Dutch Expat School Wassenaar:
The teacher listens carefully to his students and ensures that they feel at ease. The students will speak the Dutch language without being ashamed. Not being afraid to speak a foreign language is one of the main goals of Dutch Expat School Wassenaar. When you are not afraid to speak a foreign language you will use the learned vocabulary and grammar in daily 'Dutch' practice situations.
The lessons will be taken place in a Dutch surrounding, namely at my home with Dutch coffee and Dutch cookies.
There is a group-maximum of 8 persons. So in a small group you have the opportunity to speak a lot of Dutch.
There is no pressure, it is low threshold because of the small groups, the TPRS-method and the homely atmosphere. You can find more information about the method 'TPRS' on internet. Just google TPRS
