Student reviews & feedback

It was good to have grammar, but most of all was it helpful that I was nearly all the time in contact with my teacher speaking Netherlands. She took me off to supermarkets, museums, restaurants, shops, art galleries. cafes, so I had a lot´ opportunity to hear and speak.

I stayed with Irene 13 years ago and it was almost as if we could continue our conversations. I learned a lot of Dutch and hope to return in five years. She is German, so we also spoke some German in addition to Dutch, so I learned twice!

It was actually a lucky incident to have a second person there. The other lady was already fluent in Dutch, so since I was not able to talk so much in Dutch (because I was a total beginner) it helped a lot to listen to them talk the whole day and sit in their lessons as well. For me it was the perfect combination to have 1:1 lessons with Irene and then having people around me talk all the time, which let me learn probably much more in these just two weeks, than I would have learned being there alone.

It was a lovely home in a lovely part of Amsterdam. Everything was kind of close to reach, but at the same time you had kind of a little park to relax directly in front of your door.

15 of my favourite Amsterdam food and drink places!

Hello everyone, Maria here! Amsterdam is my favourite city in Europe. Six years ago, my mother and I established a new tradition of spending a few days in Amsterdam together, once or twice a year. It is our kind of mother-daughter ritual and she has different ones for each of my sisters as well. That way, each of us girls can spend a weekend getaway with our mum alone. I now know a few interesting places that Amsterdammers swear by. Here is my list of my 15 favourite places for food, drinks & books in Amsterdam, The Netherlands!
