Brecht Jelsma

Brecht has always had a broad interest in other languages and cultures. Thus, she’s always focused on this in her studies: as well as during the bachelor Language and Culture Studies, as in the master Multilingualism and language acquisition. She also learnt a few foreign languages herself. The nicest way to do this according to her is in the country itself.

In Brecht’s experience learning a language is the key to a country, its people, and culture. Fascinated by the unknown, but so special to discover a new world and slowly make it your own. During her studies she always looked for the connection with society, which made it a logical step to become a teacher herself.

Since 2018 Brecht works as a Dutch teacher. She takes fulfilment from guiding people through the same process and enjoys being ‘on the other side’ of it. Working together, speaking, and working in an interactive way are important in her lessons: this way learning a new language is as fun as possible!

In her free time Brecht likes to run, cook, bake, and dance.
