Welcome to NedLes, Dutch for non-native speakers.
What separates NedLes from other language schools is our commitment to quality, flexibility to cater to the varied demands of our learners, and a welcoming atmosphere.
The NedLes principle
Every lesson or training is based on the NedLes principle: in class we only do what cannot be done at home. In other words, conversation and listening exercises, asking questions and explaining. Students prepare for the classes at home and also process what they have learned in the classroom at home. This means they are expected to read and listen to texts, do exercises and work on writing assignments independently.
These seven golden rules apply to all NedLes teachers:
We wish everyone a valuable course experience and a happy life in the Netherlands!
The NedLes team
Don't spend time on activities that students can do by themselves at home.
Be committed and encouraging
Ensure that each student learns as much as possible.
Ensure that each student speaks as much as possible.
Provide individual feedback to each student, identifying specific strengths and weaknesses.
Ensure that individual learners are not held back by the group.
Be clear about what is done in class and what should be done at home.
