Get ready for your Dutch learning adventure where every minute is dedicated to your success!

Individual Lessons

Individual

The most dynamic and engaging way to master a language is undoubtedly through personalized lessons with a private teacher. For a full 60 minutes, the spotlight is entirely on you, focusing on the language and making the experience fit your progression. Receive instant feedback, explanations, and guidance on the areas you need the most help with.

Duo Lessons

Duo

Opting for duo lessons? Duo lessons bring a whole new level of excitement because you will learn a lot from each other. Learn from each other’s questions and help each other with homework. Enjoy 60- or 90-minutes lessons with a partner, friend or colleague you feel comfortable with. It's highly recommended to team up with someone of a similar proficiency level and commitment. Every lesson is crafted to cater to your desires.

Group Lessons

Small group

Step into engaging small group lessons lasting 90 minutes, limited to a maximum of 6 participants. You have the flexibility to choose your preferred language of instruction. While the emphasis is on Dutch, the teacher is open to providing additional explanations in English or Spanish. Become part of a WhatsApp group, where you can engage with daily questions created by your teacher.

Consistency is the key

Connect with your teacher to create a supportive learning experience that helps boost your confidence and leads to consistent progress.

Method

Teaching method


The teaching method is based on a balanced combination of daily memorization, reading, listening, writing, speaking, pronunciation and grammar. After we discussed your personal goals, I use the first few classes to decide your level and see how quickly you pick up new information. As a guideline, we will then start using a study book that fits best with your way of learning.

The use of a study book is never the only part of your personal study program. It's also about using real-life experiences into practice. This can be very fun because you get to select topics and activities based on your personal interests and situations.

In my lessons I combine existing methods with my own materials such as video’s, podcasts, books and extra exercise. For the exercises in class, you'll practice with your classmates, duo partner, or directly with the teacher, receiving immediate feedback and explanations. This feedback is a great way to monitor your progress, focus on areas of difficulty and stay motivated as you learn.



Lessons


During the lessons, I will dedicate my time on aspects that you can’t learn through self-study, such as:

  • Finding the most effective way to learn Dutch (providing you with study tips)
  • Answering your questions
  • (Additional) grammar explanations
  • Instant feedback on your conversational skills including your pronunciation
  • Feedback on your (open) writing assignments
  • (Exam training)



Time investment by self-study


To learn a new language, it is important immerse yourself in the language every day (even if it’s just for 10 minutes). How fast you will learn highly depends on the time and effort that you are willing to invest to process what you’ve learned during the classes. To ensure that you learn as much as possible from the classes, you are expected to spend approximately two to three hours per week on homework.

Language learning is the passport to a universe of understanding.

About

Lianne Gorissen

  Teacher & Founder

Hallo, hi there, hola, olá!

I am Lianne Gorissen, the friendly teacher behind the scenes at Easy Dutch Online. Dutch comes naturally to me, and I'm also proud to say I'm fluent in English and Spanish. Not forgetting that I'm currently diving into Portuguese!

My own journey of tackling Spanish at Utrecht University gave me a profound insight into the highs and lows of mastering a new language. It was during my master's studies in Multilingualism and Language Acquisition, that I discovered my genuine passion: guiding others on their language-learning adventure and sharing my insights on the most effective ways to learn a language.

In my online sessions, I combine existing methods with my own courses and materials, focusing on conversational skills and coaching students to gain more self-confidence in order to speak Dutch in their day-to-day life.

Remember, diving into a foreign language can be an absolute blast. Let's team up and make this language-learning journey both productive and enjoyable :)

Multilingual teacher

Benefit from gaining insights into specific mistakes and enjoy the convenience of explanations in your preferred language.

Alex Tanner

Lianne is an amazing language teacher, she explains things very clearly and gives the right amount of correction. I really like how Lianne gives reading and listening exercises as homework in order to focus on speaking in the lesson, really maximising the time. She has lots of great materials like books, podcasts and videos and always gives lots of options for homework. I would highly recommend language lessons with Easy Language Online!

Camille Kelly

Lianne is amazing! I needed to pass my NT2 exams in a short amount of time and Lianne made it possible. She is professional, the lessons are easy to follow, well organised, consistent and she is always extremely helpful. She is kind and patient and I definitely improved enormously with her guidance. I highly recommend choosing her as a teacher, it has been so worth it.

Kate Redman

I had lessons with Lianne for a few months and I learned more in that time than I did in the whole two years I’ve lived in the Netherlands! She took the time to get to know me and know how I learn best. Definitely worth the money!!

Surena Shrestha

I started my lessons with Lianne as someone who had a basic grasp of the Dutch language but still felt terrified to speak Dutch in public. After around four months with her, I feel more confident with my Dutch. Lianne is a patient teacher and allows us to set our own pace. She also puts in a lot of effort in finding different ways of teaching us grammar and conversations. Often times we went outside of the book and learnt through videos, books, stories and podcasts. It was such a big encouragement for me personally to have someone be patient while I kept making mistakes and for making me realize that that is all part of the process of learning a new language. Many wishes to you Lianne and thank you for your guidance!

Really enjoying studying at B2-C1 level with Lianne. Shes helping me to set the foundation for fluency, in a way that is practical, tailored to my own professional context and use of Dutch, and really fun. I can high recommend classes with her!

Juan Pecantet

La experiencia con Lianne ha sido muy buena. Es una profesora dedicada y paciente. Domina el idioma Español, Ingles y Holandes, por lo que es de gran ayuda para personas que requieren clases dedicadas en esos idiomas. Me ha ayudado a preparar un plan de estudio con expectativas claras y objetivas, pudiendo llegar a mi objetivo. 100% Recomendable!! :)

Isapavi Leo

El holandés es un idioma difícil para los hispanohablantes. Desde que llegué a Holanda, he probado distintos métodos de aprendizaje que no me han hecho avanzar tanto como las clases 1:1 con Lianne. Lianne cuenta con una metodología dinámica y eficaz, en la que aprender un idioma se convierte en una actividad divertida. Su motivación y experiencia hacen que mi mejora sea continua y exponencial. Además como es profesora de español, reconoce los fallos más típicos de los hispanohablantes y te hace aprender de ellos. 100% recomendable!
