Additionally, I help my students prepare for the IELTS, TOEFL, FCE and other exams and can teach you how to master the art of writing English essays. To make my lessons interactive and engaging, I use a lot of audio and video materials. See you online or in the classroom!

Lenneke

Ik hou van taal! De nederlandse taal, met al haar uitzonderingen, speciale bruggetjes en dubbele betekenissen. Ik schrijf dan ook graag blogs en liedjes. Jarenlang reisde ik rond en kwam ik in contact met verschillende talen en culturen, het liefst beweeg ik me er dan ook nog dagelijks tussen! Werken bij Una Paloma Blanca geeft me die mogelijkheid.

Antonio

Mijn naam is Antonio Gutierrez en ik ben leraar bij UNA PALOMA BLANCA. Ik kom uit Alicante en woon sinds een jaar of 6 in Nederland. Er zijn veel redenen om talen te leren: Je gaat op reis, je gebruikt het voor je werk, je partner spreekt een andere taal of je vindt het gewoon leuk om aan andere taal te leren. Door mijn kennis van buitenlandse talen met je te delen hoop ik dat een nieuwe taal op een leuke en efficiënte manier onderdeel wordt van jouw curriculum. Ik hoop je te zien bij UNA PALOMA BLANCA! :)

Lea

Ciao everyone! My name is Lea and I am Italian and English teacher. I was born and raised in Croatia in the most beautiful city on the Adriatic Coast - Pula. I have recently moved to the Netherlands and I am enjoying all the experiences living abroad brings along. I teach Italian and English and I love meeting new students. Whether it is a cultural unit or a grammar unit, I always do my best to make the lessons fun and efficient!

Carlo

Hi, I'm Carlo van den Boomen and I would gladly teach you the beautiful Dutch language. Speaking the local language is very practical. It makes it easier to do groceries, to find a job, or to make new friends. Language is also an important part of art and culture, symbolized by for instance poetry, lyrics, sayings and slang. Through Dutch you will get to know the Netherlands and its people, and you may even find that you will start to understand what makes us so weird at times :-). I'm passionate about language and culture and I have followed many language courses myself over the years. So I hope to see you soon!

    Because I work in a department where English skills are very important to communicate with clients, I decided to follow a private intensive English course where I could quickly brush up my English knowledge and bring my writing and speaking skills to a C1 level. I liked most that the team of teacherRead mores immediately understood my needs and they focused on my preferences helping me achieving my goals in no time.Read less

    I’m writing to thank you very much for the course you’ve organised for Egor. I was really surprised when, firstly, he agreed to do something like that on holiday, secondly, when after the first day with you he wasn’t incredibly tired as I would have expected, on the contrary, very excited. WheRead moren you asked us to speak only English during the week, I thought, ok, we’ll see! 😊 But, in fact, every time when I being forgetful say something in Russian, Egor says: “I’m sorry, Mum, I don’t understand you!” Moreover, in the evening on Monday he asked me to help him with his homework! What have you done?! 😊 How could you manage?! 😊 He never does his homework at school, maybe, during the break time before the lesson starts if the teacher is strict enough! 😊 I’m really impressed by the teaching skills of you! Thank you very much! It’s very important for me. I’ve wanted to introduce Egor to this kind of studying for a long time. He’s been never interested until now. As I told you, I’ve done a lot of language courses in England. I love it, I miss it very much. I’m happy that Egor seems to like it too. I think that in spite of the fact he’s doing a short course he’s going to have a great breakthrough in his English studies.Read less

    Speaking is always the most challenging part of any new language, and with Dutch it feels even more difficult for me personally... I just can't gather the courage to try and verbalise sentences, but I am aware it’s maybe the most important part of becoming fluent. That’s what I most appreciate iRead moren our teacher at Una Paloma Blanca - however broken we may speak, she's always encouraging, fun and has a friendly, empathetic way of correcting us. That’s highly important to keep the motivation going and practice even outside the group, in real life.Read less

    Being a marketer in a foreign country comes with its own set of challenges. Knowing the local language is not just a plus but a prerequisite. Hence, soon after I arrived in the Netherlands, I started my hunt for a language class. After scouting for days, I stumbled upon Una Paloma Blanca’s creativRead moree website. A couple of email conversations later, I found myself at their Eindhoven facility. I loved the vibe and decided to give it a shot. Soon after, it became a home away from home for me as I formed instant friendships within my group. Their one-of-a-kind learning material (an illustrative book that you would not want to put down) and immersive lessons helped me learn the language quicker than I had anticipated. Furthermore, it aided my understanding of the cultural nuances in the Dutch society that gave me an edge in interviews and formal conversations. I cannot thank my teacher enough (who went above and beyond every time) for her constant motivation and support. To all the fellow expats looking for a fun way to learn Dutch, I say go for it!Read less

    Learning a new language is challenging and Dutch is no different. Learning how to speak confidently and have day to day conversations in Dutch as an expat is challenging. During the summer course what I liked the most was that we focused on the message we were trying to convey and how to properly saRead morey it instead of only correcting us. The balance between study material and outside activities makes the course not feel as intensive and actually makes it fun. The teachers also did a good job encouraging us and motivating us into starting conversations. For anyone looking to improve their vocabulary and gain confidence in conversing in Dutch I really recommend Una Paloma Blanca’s summer courses.Read less

    Learning Dutch is hard enough, but without the right, dedicated teacher, it would be impossible for someone to learn. I have been studying at Una Paloma Blanca for almost 3 years. I find spoken Dutch the most difficult part, because the Dutch people have a certain accent which is not easy to learn. Read moreHowever, the teachers are so nice at this school and they encourage you to practice every time even if you don't speak perfectly... and basically, this is the whole point of following a Dutch course.... TO LEARN! This is what I always appreciate about my teacher: her teaching style, the way of explaining grammar to me, the empathy that she always shows me (not only to my broken speech). My teacher makes me feel part of this family. It is highly important to have the right teacher for your needs, who knows how to keep you motivated in this process of learning a new language all while integrating into Dutch society. Read less
