Een week lang heb ik privé-les mogen geven aan een zeer gedreven en gemotiveerde cursist, die samen met mij keihard heeft gewerkt om haar Engels op te frissen en bij te schaven. Het was erg leuk om te doen, zeker omdat de directe interactie tussen ons heeft geleid tot een prettige en leerzame samenwerking. Ik ben dan ook ontzettend trots op haar. Je leest hieronder haar verhaal, uiteraard in het Engels.


“I took an intensive language course taught by Kimberley. For 5 days I have attended lessons in the morning and did my home- and studywork in the afternoons and evenings. It was lovely and inspiring.


Finally I dare to speak English again. I can still enrich my vocabulary of course. However, there are many words I already know but can’t always remember on the spot. But it will come in time. Of course I still make and will make mistakes, but it doesn’t matter to me anymore.


All thanks to Kimberley. She was my patient and stimulating teacher. Not only her personality is warm, she also prepared the course so thoroughly. All exercises were suitable to my learning goals. And she works with modern and likeable apps.


The course made me crave for more. I’ll read English novels now, I changed the language settings in my phone to English and I’ll not hesitate inviting foreign people at my place anymore.


For me, this week at Kimberley’s was a turning point. I replaced a language stone in the river of my life.”
