Heleen Keyzer has had the pleasure of teaching Dutch to non-native speakers for several years now. Heleen obtained a university degree in Dutch, but only discovered how much fun teaching Dutch as a second language was after volunteering in a literacy programme. What she likes about language learning is the fact that it’s practical and useful.
Heleen finds helping and teaching her students very fulfilling. It’s really impressive what they have learned at the end of the class period. In return, she learns a lot from her students as well, because every group or person is different.
When Heleen is not teaching, she enjoys drawing, running and stand-up comedy.
