Hi there! I am Eva de Jong. I have been teaching Dutch as a second language since 2011. Besides language trainer, I’m also a (copy)writer. I’ve been fascinated by the Dutch language as well as the process of learning foreign languages my entire life. I even wrote my Master’s thesis on the acquisition of a second language later in life. So yes, I’m a bit of a language geek.
Learning a new language can be a real challenge but I think it can and should be fun. That’s why my lessons are interactive and focused on putting acquired knowledge into action. For example, I love to take my students for a beer after class (as long as they order in Dutch of course ;-).
Besides teaching, I travel a lot, I like to go to classes in the gym and you can often find me in one of Amsterdam’s ‘brown cafés’. Oh, and I love to go out for dinner, so if you need any tips, let me know! Hope to see you soon in one of my classes.
