I had a great learning experience at Hollandse Meester! The teacher was fun, professional, and knowledgeable. I had one on one lessons for six months, and afterwards able to speak and write Dutch at work. Highly recommended!

The best way to learn a language is from someone who clearly has the passion to teach it. Thanks for the lessons!


Jan’s lessons are very well structured for optimum progress while there are lots of fun things to do 🙂 Also introduction to various aspects of Dutch culture and practicalities must be very helpful for those who are new to the country or would like to finally give it a shot! The teacher is also a lovely good person. Highly recommended!

Jan is an enthusiastic teacher that adapts his style to each student. He is very motivating and knowledgeable and finds always themes that are interesting. He uses different apps to send all new vocabulary and he treats each student in a very personal way. Thanks to Jan I got my Dutch to the next level and I can fully recommend him. As an addition to his skills as Dutch teacher he is up to date on what is on in the Netherlands!

My lessons are tailored to make them relevant to my experience here living and working in The Netherlands. I couldn’t ask for a better way to learn a new language!


Super leraar!!! Echt een aanrader!
