Jacqueline Claassen

After studying Dutch language and literature in Groningen, Jacqueline started working as an NT2 teacher. That was in 1991. That was a good choice because after 30 years she still enjoys teaching. Her work is varied and challenging. She still enjoys helping people learn the Dutch language. She is still learning, even after so many years of experience. This keeps her profession interesting. It is interesting to meet people from all different parts of the world and cultures.

After her studies, Jacqueline worked as a part-time stewardess at KLM for 10 years. During this period she saw many places in the world and became acquainted with many different cultures. That was a fantastic experience.

In her spare time she likes to go to museums and Jacqueline enjoys reading and yoga.

She is currently learning Spanish and she knows how difficult it is to learn a new language.
