Dear fan of Dutch -- yes, YOU!

Once upon a time you set out to learn Dutch. But every course you find just turns out to be very bland with too many boxes with grammar rules and never-ending vocabulary lists...

Well, guess what... I am a superb teacher of Dutch and I love to entertain. Shake those two up, and you get an interactive course, motivating you to really stick with it and have what you learn stick to you.

My magic? In introducing daily topics and useful expressions, I subtly have you picking up basic grammar rules. Unlike most other language courses, I won't devote entire chapters to complicated grammar rules, but will instead subtly weave them into the topic.

And then there's the Spaced Retention trick...

Things will only stick if you quickly practice what you learn and keep doing that every so often. So get ready to not only listen to the voice on your screen, but also happily interact and answer any questions I have for you!

And that, dear fan of Dutch, is how a course can be made educational, interactive and fun!

Be sure to check out the course preview to find out more!

Veel succes en veel plezier! Good luck and have fun!Leslie

About Leslie... { LearnDutchToday com}

Leslie has been bouncing back and forth between the the Dutch-speaking part of Belgium and the US her entire life. She loves any language, but does admit putting Dutch on the top of her list.

She has collected a Masters in Translation Dutch-English-Russian, a Teaching Degree and also plenty of experience as a youth animator and professional mom!

She landed her first job watching movies and tv-series all day long, subtitling English to Dutch for national television. Looking for more real-life love stories, she got into teaching Dutch as a Foreign language. In businesses around Brussels, and later on convincing young adults that Dutch is one cool language.

Since then, life has treated her to a move to the sun and sand of San Diego, California, where she was blown away by the number of people who had been patiently awaiting some solid Dutch lessons.

Busy teaching and motivating her students through face-to-face and webcam lessons, she dreamt up this added adventure of creating a series of uniquely interactive online video courses to reach even more learners ... anxiously awaiting their very own awesome reality show ... of Dutch!
