Liuba Veretentseva works at NedLes as a teacher and administrative assistant. She is responsible for scheduling courses and ensures that the right teacher is matched to the right course and level. In addition to these duties, Liuba is involved in developing our course programme and also teaches courses herself. Her style of teaching is kind and inclusive, with personalised attention for every student.
Liuba was born in Russia and studied Dutch in Moscow. In 2020, she obtained her Master’s degree in Dutch as a second language and multilingualism at the University of Amsterdam. So she definitely knows what it feels like to learn a new language. Learning Dutch is not just about mastering the language, you also need to understand how Dutch people think. In this sense, with every new language you learn, you acquire a new personality and apply a new way of thinking to your life.
In her spare time, Liuba enjoys yoga, tango dancing and going out with her friends. She loves Russian literature and living in Amsterdam with her cat. Her sense of direction is not her strongest attribute. Even in her hometown she gets the direction wrong every time. But she has never lost her way in Amsterdam. For her, Amsterdam is home.
