Go to classes. To good ones. This is where I get to recommend my school, and my dear professor Petra. If you are in the area, make sure you ask for her, and enroll in one of her courses because she is really, really good (not to mention fun, crazy and chaotic, all great qualities in my book).
The atmosphere during my intensive course with Direct Dutch was great! It was friendly, knowledgable and relaxing!

Two weeks with Petra and I was happily crooning to ‘O O Den Haag’ and ready to subject anyone and everyone to my Dutch conversation.

Our teacher was funny, positive, and responsive to our needs. She adjusted her instruction to review lessons that were particularly challenging and she provided each of us with personal feedback that allowed us to grow in our knowledge and fluency with Dutch.

My teachers, incuding Edith, Petra, and Robyn, were all very helpful, warm, and quite funny. I looked forward to class every week and highly recommend Direct Dutch to speakers of all levels.

As difficult as learning a new language is, it is good when someone can make it enjoyable and give you a sense of achievement at the end of it all. I look forward to coming back to Direct Dutch again.
