May 2021 – Vladimir Bobrov, IT specialist from Belarus:
Last autumn I’ve set an ambitious goal to learn Dutch on the level of A2 in 3 months for my naturalisation. Before that I knew no Dutch. But working with Daphne helped me to progress very well in my study and in about 3 months I was able to apply for my naturalisation exams with confidence. Although my exams were moved 2 months later due to corona lockdown, I was able to pass all my exams from the first attempt! This was enormous success and I’m extremely happy with my tutor, lessons and results! I highly recommend Taaltutor to anyone who would like to study Dutch language!
Feb 2021 – Huda Alhasani, physician from Iraq:
Ja. Ik heb mijn diploma NT2-B2 gehaald door het leren van de taal online te doen via een flexibel en op maat gemaakt methode. Het meest heb ik geleerd door hardop lezen en praten. Ik heb mijn leren meestal met de Delftse methode gedaan. Als de docenten van tevoren de lessen goed lezen, kunnen ze meer vragen stellen wat betreft de inhoud van de les en nieuwe woorden daarbij. De flexibiliteit was ideaal voor mij.
Oct 2020 – Tara L, scientific researcher from Ireland:
The Dutch lessons helped me meet my learning objectives, especially practicing speaking. I think it works well to follow a book and the lessons were fun! I would recommend Taaltutor’s Skype lessons to others because it really helped with my confidence in speaking Dutch and the pronunciation.
July 2019 – Theresa C., massage therapeut from the USA:
Thanks to Skype lessons with Sandra and her Taaltutor team, I was able to quickly become fluent in Dutch, not just speaking it, but also reading, writing, hearing and comprehending it. Sandra’s knowledge of and expertise with American language and culture enabled her to skillfully and professionally tailor her responses and lesson plans to make the Dutch language and cultural nuances easy to understand and integrate.
Thanks to Sandra and the Taaltutor team, I can be “one of them,” and share in the wonderfully rich and diverse Dutch “gezelligheid.” And that for me is priceless!
Feb 2018 – Anastasia, opera singer from Russia:
Taaltutor heeft mij goed geholpen om MMV examen te halen. Ik vond de lessen interessant, informatief en hulpvol.
Feb 2018 – Uzine Park, artist from South-Korea:
I got great help with my pronunciation check up.
Not only speaking practice but also grammar help was so helpful!
Dec 2017 – Jennifer and Joseph Coletta, chiropractors from the USA:
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!
Dec 2017 – Paolo Schettini, dentist from Italy:
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.
May 2018 – Khaled Alrawashdeh, language teacher from Jordan:
Jullie hebben mij goed geholpen met conversatie!
June 2017 – Alan Jenks, chiropractor from the USA:
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.
Oct 2016 – Tara B., medical specialist from Sweden:
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.
Oct 2015 – Nils P. Johnson, cardiologist from the USA:
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!
March 2016 – 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.
Aug 2016 – Mari Tasanto, consultant from Finland:
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.
July 2016 – Kore Dille, financial expert from the USA:
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.
Aug 2016 – 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!
