Language Coaching

Would you like to:

  • improve your Dutch oral and writing skills?
  • practise speaking Dutch with a professional conversation partner?
  • work on other learning goals with regard to Dutch language skills?

When you are regularly communicating with Dutch-speaking partners in your work or living in the Netherlands for the long term, it can be helpful to develop your Dutch oral and writing skills.

Even when you are already taking part in a Dutch language course or have completed such a course, it may be useful to get additional practice at a time that suits you. For instance, you may want to practise speaking Dutch to prepare for a language course test or exam or you may want to maintain your newly acquired skills if you do not speak Dutch on a day-to-day basis.


About Ariena Noordman

After studying English Language and Culture at the Univeristy of Groningen, I worked as English <> Dutch translator, interpreter and language coach for people wanting to learn English. As a native Dutch speaker, I also apply my experience in helping people learn a new language to my mother tongue. In my coaching, I specifically address the topics English speakers find most difficult when speaking and writing in Dutch.


Services and Availability

I offer individual language coaching by means of Skype or Hangouts connection, so there is no need to travel for the lessons. The coaching is flexible: you can decide how many hours of coaching you require and when you would like to schedule these.

The lesson times can vary from one week to the next, according to what suits you best. I am avaible during the following time slots:

Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday 09.00-17.00

Monday and Tuesday 19.00-21.30

If you prefer to have face-to-face contact, coaching at my home office in Zwolle is also possible.


Working Method

I would like to offer you a free introduction in order to get to know each other and assess your learning goals. If you decide to begin with language coaching, we will discuss the lesson times and the content of the lessons. I will then send you an overview of what we agreed on by email and you will confirm this agreement by email. You will receive an monthly invoice for the lessons given.
