Mark-Pieter van den Heuvel

I’ve started teaching Dutch as a second language in 2017 and I’m still enjoying it every day. Important preconditions for learning and hence standard ingredients of my lessons: Creating a safe learning environment, humour, sensible texts and genuine interest in the person behind the student. It’s nice to know that Carlos Arroyo is from Spain and that Peter Janssen buys his broccoli at the local market, but what did you put in your grocery cart at the super market this weekend? You always bring yourself with you in the school class, so tell me: Who are you?
