WHAT OUR STUDENTS SAY ABOUT US
“Just a quick note to say that after just 3 months of Dutch lessons with Sophia, I can understand what my Dutch girlfriend talks about! I am also able to have small and simple conversations in Dutch. I will definitely continue with the next level.” Jorge Alvarado
“What I mostly love during my Dutch course is the language activities outside the main book. My teacher is enthusiastic and full of energy every time. She gives us extra exercises when we need to practice more. Ik ben erg blij!” Riccardo Rachini
”After a very disappointing year at another Greek school I met with Despina to discuss if I could start Greek lessons with her, and I can now say I am more than happy that I did! Despina is not only a very enthusiastic teacher, as a person she is also super friendly, always happy and highly interested in all of her students. She made me feel welcome from the beginning although I joined the class almost at the end of the year.
Apart from the classes being a lot of fun, she and her fellow teacher Katerina make sure everybody in class is participating and that we all understand the different aspects of the language.
If you are thinking about learning about the Greek culture and learning the language, I definitely recommend doing so with Despina.” Barbara van Rijnswou
”I started Greek lessons with Despina and I got the Certificate of Attainment in Greek, level B1! Despina is truly the most amazing person that I know. She adjusts all the lessons to your needs, so that you learn to speak Greek quickly and effectively. And I am so thankful for that, but most of all I am thankful for the fact that I met one of my best friends. When I did my course with her I always felt like ‘going home’ when I had my lessons. Ευχαριστώ!” Joyce Kouroukounis
”Some time ago I decided to start learning Dutch via Skype. It is the best thing I ever did! I arrange the time and day with my teacher and we meet online. I like the method, the book and the fact that we speak mostly in the target language. I will keep on going! Thank you, Sophia!” Caterina Hatzi
“I met Michelle when I started Dutch lessons online! I am in love with my Skype lessons. It’s like we sit next to each other. Before that, I used to subscribe to group courses and I missed a lot of classes because of work. Now I arrange my lessons based on my work schedule which makes it possible for me to learn Dutch after all!” Julien Andre
“Despina makes learning Greek fun and exciting (with not too much homework). She is a fantastic teacher and the group lessons are something that I look forward to each week. I was truly surprised at the end of the year to find myself able to undestand and be understood in Greek. It’s not an easy language but Despina makes it seem simple. If you’re considering starting I sincerely recommend that you do – you won’t regret it at all! ” David Griston
”Despina has been my private tutor in Modern Greek since September 2011. The fact that I am still enjoying her lessons should say enough, however let me briefly elaborate: Despina’s ability to anticipate my personal needs and change the curriculum accordingly is what really sets her apart on a professional level. On a personal level she’s a lot of fun to be around and even though my lessons are always at the end of tiring working days for both of us she makes them a joy to attend. I recommend Despina to everyone looking for Modern Greek language classes.” Bram van Berkel
”Despina is een uitstekende docent Grieks. Ze legt je de grammatica op een duidelijke en begrijpelijke manier uit en houdt daarbij rekening met je niveau. Haar enthousiasme maakt de lessen plezierig en verre van saai.
Een echte aanrader voor iedereen die de Griekse taal op een goede en leuke manier wil leren!” Sarai den Ouden
