Dutch for beginners; the first step

Situations in daily life such as introducing yourself, shopping or going to the hairdresser can therefore be experienced as difficult.

Basic Dutch course | Level 0 - A2
I started learning Dutch because I live there and I want to speak the language of the country where I live. I found this language school through many searches and reviews I've seen on the internet. My experience with the class was nice, the book was good and the teacher was very friendly. She was methodical and communicative. Everything was very good for me. I don't use Dutch that much because I don't work. But every time I go somewhere I try to speak Dutch and I now know when to speak Dutch.
I recently moved to the Netherlands. That's why I wanted to follow a Dutch course. I searched the internet and found Learn2speak Dutch on the Supergreek site. After contacting my teacher Effie, I thought I had found what I was looking for. The pace of the classes is appropriate for a working mom like me. The book is very understandable and the contact with Dutch people really helped me a lot. This is amazing! I highly recommend Learn2speak Dutch and thank you so much for making my move to the Netherlands easier. Thanks Effie!
I want to learn Dutch because I have been living in the Netherlands for 2 years and I also work in the country. I found Effie and Learn2speak Dutch on Facebook. Everyone says she is the best of all teachers, so I chose her. The book is very good and interesting and the pace is good enough. I find the teacher very good and friendly. In the beginning I found everything difficult, because Dutch is a difficult language. I now feel I can write better. I speak Dutch in the supermarket and with some friends, but I still don't feel very comfortable. It'll come.
I started the course because I have been living in the Netherlands for almost four years. The teacher was recommended to us because the explanations are in Greek. The classes were very good, everyone could participate. The book and the pace was easy to follow and the teacher was very clear with explanations. I thought reading in Dutch was difficult. Now I can do it without any doubt. I now also use Dutch at work and that helps with understanding the language.
I think you should learn the native language if you live in another country. I think it's polite to the people of this country. I've heard about Learn2speak Dutch from other students and I chose it because the teacher is also Greek, so it's easier for me to learn. My experience with the classes has been very positive. The book and pace fit very well into my busy schedule and the teacher is very clear and easy to follow. I've always found grammar the most challenging, but not anymore! I use Dutch in my daily life: in the supermarket, at the butcher's, in the shops, but also to have (for now) simple conversations with native speakers.
I started learning Dutch because I am going to study in the Netherlands. I found Effie through Facebook and I really liked her lesson plan. I really liked the pace of the lesson and the structure. The book is a step-by-step guide to learning the language and culture, so it's very easy to follow. I had some problems with grammar, but with Effie as the teacher, everything was understandable. I haven't come to the Netherlands yet but when I do I will use it as much as I can.
I live in the Netherlands and I wanted to speak the language. I often tried to learn Dutch, but I couldn't speak it. I found the Learn2speak Dutch school in the Super Greeks Facebook group. I chose this school because the teacher is Greek. I found the book very good and very useful. The teacher is very professional. She is patient and explains the language very well. She can see where your problem is and she always finds a way to help you. She encourages you and that gives you energy to move on.

The book was easy to understand and the pace was easy to follow. Effie (the teacher) is very nice and very helpful. The grammar was the hardest. I still find it difficult, but not as much as before the course. I often use Dutch in the supermarket and sometimes at the doctor’s.
I wanted to learn Dutch because I work and live in the Netherlands. I found Effie through a colleague at work, she recommended her. The lessons are helpful, my Dutch is much better now. The teacher explains everything well. I couldn't understand much with reading or listening in the beginning, now I understand a lot more. I can now have simple conversations and ask questions in stores. At work I can understand my Dutch colleagues.
I am learning Dutch because I want to work in the Netherlands. I found Learn2speak Dutch through Facebook. I first had a chat with Effie and I liked her. In the beginning I found it difficult that there are so many vowel combinations and the constant h, g etc. I really don't have that much contact with Dutch people, but I use Dutch when I go shopping or visit a restaurant.
I wanted to learn Dutch, because I have been living in the Netherlands since 2018. I found Learn2speak Dutch through a colleague. I like the lessons and the book is easy to use.

Vocabulary and grammar are easy to explain. The book is easy and clear. The teacher had perfect communication and made everything look simple. The pace was excellent. Speaking was difficult at first. Now it's not so difficult anymore. I use Dutch to communicate with my colleagues, do the shopping, order food and drinks, go to the movies and make appointments with Dutch friends.
I wanted to learn Dutch because I wanted to be able to communicate with people here in the Netherlands. That can help me to get a better job. I started the Dutch course so that I can do daily activities myself. I found the school through a page on Facebook, I talked to Effie, I thought the way of learning was very smart and that's how I started the lessons.
For me, Dutch is a difficult language. In the beginning the book was also difficult, but with the help of the lessons and the way the teacher explains everything, it seemed simpler and more accessible. In the beginning I had the feeling I would never learn to say anything in Dutch. Now, being two years in the Netherlands, I can understand and use a few words, I feel very happy.
Now I use Dutch on a daily basis, during shopping and at work to communicate with my colleagues. I am very happy that I can now understand them sufficiently and do a few things myself.
I wanted to get to know more about the Dutch culture. I wanted to communicate more directly with my Dutch colleagues and friends. I found Learn2speak Dutch through supergrieks.eu. I found the information about the Dutch language on the Learn2speak Dutch website very interesting. My experience with the classes is exciting! The book is very interesting, the pace is very good and we enjoy working in class. The teacher, Ms. Effie Alexiadou, is very organised, informative and creative! I find the pronunciation the hardest! Group lessons help a lot as we learn and improve with the other students in the course. I now use Dutch in many daily activities. That helps me to get closer to my Dutch friends and colleagues and to better understand the Dutch culture.
I want to learn Dutch to make my everyday life easier, to find a better job and to be able to communicate with the Dutchies. Also, my daughter will start in a Dutch school soon so it will be useful to learn the language myself. I found Learn2speak Dutch online on Facebook. I chose this school because of the reviews of other students. Everyone recommended it and spoke very highly of it. I am very happy with the lessons. The online lessons are a perfect fit for my schedule. The lessons are engaging and easy to follow. I really enjoy the pair work activities and I always learn something new. The book is very interesting and effie our teacher is nice and patient with us. She always gives us tips about the language and cultural facts about the Netherlands and the way of life here. What I find the most difficult in Dutch is the speaking part. It's a bit intimidating for me to speak with other people but we practice a lot during the lessons and now I feel more confident about it. Now I use Dutch in my everyday life. When I go shopping, to order in a restaurant or to ask for directions. I will continue the lessons with Learn2speak Dutch until I reach my goals and I recommend everyone to join it!
I wanted to learn Dutch because I decided to come and live with my partner in the Netherlands, who lives here permanently. Because of the pandemic, I wanted to take advantage of the time I was at home and learned Dutch. My partner told me he knew a lady who gives Dutch lessons online and so he introduced me to Mrs. Effie Alexiadou.
When I first started, I thought I couldn’t learn Dutch quickly. Every Thursday we had class, we were a group of 11 people and the climate was great. We all matched up as if we've known each other for years. The book was easy and practical and the way Mrs. Effie taught the class was understandable. In a short time I was able to make sentences myself.
t is very difficult to be in a country and not be able to communicate. Now, I can go shopping alone without any problems, I understand what people tell me and so my life in the Netherlands gets easier. I look forward to the end of our summer holidays and to start class again in the fall.
A friendly tip: in any country, even if you already have a good job, it's good to get to know the language… If you want to learn how to write Dutch? It’s a unique experience in Mrs. Effie's group. Thank you so much Effie for your patience!
What are you going to learn?
During the course you will practice reading, writing, listening and speaking. In addition, you practice with the pronunciation of sounds and there’s attention for grammar. You will learn many new words and phrases from everyday life and also learn to apply them correctly. In addition, you will learn:
- How to introduce yourself.
- Do your own shopping.
- Making appointments, for example with the GP.
- Order food in a restaurant.
- Use public transport.
- How to look for a house.
- Go to the doctor independently.
Where can you apply this?
You will notice that you can cope well in daily life without the help of others. You know how to express yourself well when, for example you visit the doctor, shop in the supermarket or go out for a dinner in a restaurant. But you can also have short conversations at work, follow dialogues and understand what your colleagues mean. That’s good for your self-confidence, social contacts and motivation. All this with the ultimate result that you really feel at home in the Netherlands.
