Level A0-B1

What do I learn in this level?

Beginners start today and within 3 months, they reach B1 level! Ιf they decide to pass the B1 level exam, they need one more month of lessons to focus and fully prepare it. It sounds incredible but with the Language and Motivation method, this is possible!

Following simple presentations and demonstrations

 Understanding the general meaning of professional e-mails, letters and articles

Understanding routine and factual newspaper articles expressing personal opinions

Responding to daily work communication

Expressing simple opinions and offer advice within a known area

Making accurate notes at meetings and seminars

Writing articulate, semi-formal letters and e-mails on familiar matters (e.g., motivational letter)

Level B1-B2

What do I learn in this level?

Independent users (B1) start today and within 3 months, they reach B2 level! Ιf they decide to pass the B2 level exam, they need one more month of lessons to focus and fully prepare it. This is half the time in comparison with traditional lessons!

Following extended speeches and lectures

Understanding the main ideas of complex articles, letters, e-mails, on both concrete and abstract topics, including discussions in your field of specialization

Offering detailed advice to clients within job area

Level B2-C1

What do I learn in this level?

Independent users (B2) start today and within 3 months, they reach C1 level! It means that they will succeed in C1 level exams if they decide to go for it.

This is half the time in comparison with traditional lessons!

After 3 months, you will be capable of:

Following long speeches with varied language

Understanding a wide range of demanding texts and recognize implicit meaning

Expressing yourself fluently and spontaneously

Using language effectively for professional and social purposes

Individual or group lessons?

Both options are excellent. Yet, depending on your work, personality and learning style, one of them might be more suitable for you. Here are few things to consider:

Individual lessons

  • The lessons can be personalized and reflect exactly what you want or need.

  • Your lesson time can be scheduled around your life and work.

  • You can work on sensitive work-related material that you don’t want to share with a class.          

Group lessons

  • Educational material adapted to your personal goals.

  • Learning in a group can take the pressure off of you.

  • Interacting with your classmate is highly effective for your language development.

  • I was a bit skeptical at first when I read about the practice-based teaching method, but learning Dutch this way has been amazing! The lessons are easy to follow, the teacher is fun and personable and my everyday life has become easier, as I now understand more and more words when people speak with me! Highly recommend it.

  • I first came across Language & Motivation website while looking for a teacher for private Dutch lessons. I thought reaching B1 in three months was not possible, except in courses with classes every day, so I kept looking. But I was so intrigued that I couldn't stop thinking about it and a week later I sent an email asking for more details. Once I had settled down and was sure I could dedicate 6 hours per week to homework in the following three months, I decided to go ahead. I was impressed from the start. After the first lesson, I found myself being able to read and roughly understand a sign that had been sitting for weeks in the common room at my workplace. I guess that’s the main breakthrough of the F.A.S.T. method: it gives the students tools to break the language down to make it easier and then build it up at their own pace as they advance. It takes effort and dedication, and you only get what you give, but teacher Jildou was there to make everything clear and keep every lesson stimulating and fun.

  • I always had a really tough time with new languages. With "Language and motivation" things didn't miraculously change but I felt motivated, which wasn't the case with my previous experiences. And slowly I built my dutch language skills to pretty much get by in my day to day life. Now in some cases, Dutch people talk to me in Dutch without realizing I am not a Dutch speaker. I am not at a level to hold a fluent conversation yet but with "Language and Motivation" I feel I got the tools to get better slowly. My tip to new learners is to trust the process and move things at your own pace.

    Harry S., Director of R&D, student of Dutch
  • Your method is exceptional and Jildou is a special teacher with patience and communicability. She managed during the time we collaborated, to make Dutch more accessible. I wish to join you again as soon as conditions are favorable for me.

    Nikolaos Ch., student of Dutch
  • I did the 1-on-1 3-month course from A0 to B1 with Mahdy. Indeed it boosted my Dutch language level very fast. I really like the way it was taught as it goes directly to adult’s material so that you learn the language by directly applying the language to explain things. He encourages me to try to speak a lot and it felt fun to have the lessons. It is indeed encouraging and tailor-made. I am impressed by my growth of Dutch level which one can take much more time just to reach my current level.

    Peter D., Postdoctoral researcher, student of Dutch
  • Language and Motivation is a unique language school. With one-on-one lessons and supportive teachers, this was the best learning experience I could have asked for. I followed their Dutch course and my teacher Annetta was never once impatient or discouraging. She zoned in on the areas for improvement, while keeping me happy and engaged with my development (she's literally the best). Can't recommend it enough, thanks for everything LM!

  • Mahdy, the Dutch teacher is very good and always made me feel comfortable.
