Anastasia, opera singer from Russia:
Taaltutor heeft mij goed geholpen om MMV examen te halen. Ik vond de lessen interessant, informatief en hulpvol.
Uzine Park, from South-Korea, artist in Utrecht:
I got great help with my pronunciation check up.
Not only speaking practice but also grammar help was so helpful!
Jennifer and Joseph Coletta, from the US, living and working in their own chiropractor practice in the province of South-Holland:
Astrid tutored my husband and I. I needed help with conversational Dutch for my medical reception work, and my husband for his work with clients. My husband received his A2 and is still progressing. My Dutch is better than it was when I first started. I can hold simple conversations and handle almost all my work tasks in Dutch. My Dutch is not perfect, but many clients have complimented me in my progress and are happy they can understand me now!
Paolo Schettini, dentist from Italy, works in the province of Overijssel:
Sandra heeft me geholpen met bepaalde lessen voor mijn tandartsopleiding. Aan het einde van de les kreeg ik altijd informatie over mijn niveau en wat ik verbeteren moest. Ik heb afgelopen zaterdag uitslag ontvangen en het was goed! Geslaagd !! ????????? Hartstikke bedankt voor alles, jouw hulp was fundamenteel.
Khaled Alrawashdeh, English teacher from Jordan, lives and works in the province of Friesland:
Jullie hebben mij goed geholpen met conversatie!
Alan Jenks, chiropractor from the US, lives and works in the province of South-Holland:
As a native English speaker and having lived for 9 years in the Netherlands I was forced into getting an official language certificate. Taaltutor made the whole process simple and easy. It was a very relaxing and effective way to do my tests. I had a very positive experience that I will be taking future Skype lessons to improve my Dutch. Thank You.
Tara B., from Stockholm, Sweden, about reaching her goals:
I chose Taaltutor because I wanted to learn Dutch in a structured way. I still worked full time in Sweden, but wanted to prepare for the move to the Netherlands. It was ideal to have language lessons via Skype. Thus, it was possible to adjust the lessons to my busy schedule in the hospital and my pace and way of learning. Sandra is very professional and committed to her work. She has an effective and purposeful way of working. She quickly saw the shortcomings in my language and adapted the lessons accordingly.
My first goal was to pass the State Exam. I have achieved that in 20 hours. My other goal was to bring my Dutch to a higher level, so I could find a job in the Netherlands. I achieved that after two months through an intensive course with Sandra. With great professionalism and personal involvement for her students, Sandra offers her students a unique program that is not easy to find anywhere else.
Nils P. Johnson, cardiologist from the USA, about learning Dutch via Skype:
I searched the Internet for Skype tutors, since I wanted to have 50 sessions of 30 minutes over about 3 months. Several options existed with varying degrees of structure and cost. I selected Taaltutor since it fit my schedule and my learning philosophy. It was a vital part of my growth to have daily conversations in Dutch, both for listening and speaking. I also learned a lot about the Netherlands as well. An excellent resource. I would absolutely recommend Taaltutor to others!
Annemie van Elderen, from Belgium about her English lessons:
My daughter made me aware that someone was offering English lessons through Skype. I wanted to pick up my English again, because I was visiting family in the US. It seemed to me something practical, to be able to study from home and individually. There was an immediate click with Sandra and I still have a lot of fun taking lessons. We talk a lot about literature and I occasionally read English books. I can now easily read TIME magazine whereas doing so in the past was hard. I also do tests with Taaltutor’s web app English a Day. I think they are very instructive.
Mari Tasanto, from Finland about her Dutch lessons:
Skype lessons give flexibility to the schedule. You can have a lesson even if you are traveling. When you have a lesson via Internet, it´s easier to focus on the topic and utilize the time efficiently. Sandra Wormgoor is also a very customer oriented teacher and she can sense and analyze which method best suits the client. There is a clear learning path that we follow, but methods can differ depending on the energy and competence level of the pupil. Taaltutor makes a clear difference in agility, variation of learning methods and in excellent customer orientation.
Kore Dille, from the USA about her preparatory lessons for her Dutch Inburgerings exams:
I have been following a course for several years, but was still not confident in Dutch conversations. I found Sandra online and started with two lessons per week. I found the lessons very easy to follow and immediately noticed an improvement in my understanding and confidence. Lessons over Skype are a great way to learn the language – it’s convenient and not intimidating at all! I find the lessons and material very flexible, and Sandra customizes the lessons to meet my needs. After two months of starting the lessons with Sandra, I took and passed the Inburgerings exams. Additionally, my understanding of the language continues to improve with each lesson.
Robert Jan Verkade, from The Netherlands, about the web-app English a Day:
I have been using your app for more than 50 days now, and I really want to tell you that I have great fun with it. Using the app is lovely, but the daily mail even more so. It is a great pleasure receiving such wonderful and stimulating mails. Many thanks, and I promise that I will use the app for more than 100 days (or even more).
Janneke van Wakeren, from The Netherlands about English a Day:
I just wanted to say that I find it very nice to read facts in the mail every day. I look forward to the daily test. A test may have consisted of 10 questions as well! And I always read the explanation!
