about me

Hi there, my name is Martina Lucic and welcome to my website. How nice of you to visit. I've been teaching Dutch to expats for more than 5 years now and I absolutely love it. I'm an animal lover, play music and love walking, something I do daily in the gorgeous hillside of the south of The Netherlands. Even though I graduated as a translator, I quickly realized that seeing someone grow and become comfortable with something as complicated as a new language is very gratifying. Whether you're learning Dutch for a job or to communicate better with a friend, partner or family member, I can help you. The lessons are flexible and tailor-made. We always focus on main points like culture, grammar, spelling and pronunciation through different kinds of exercises and fun games. Everyone learns in a different way. My job is to find out how your brain works and to make sure that we achieve your goals successfully while working on speaking, writing, reading and listening. I hope my lessons are relaxed, fun, encouraging and enjoyable. Even though it may feel as a struggle sometimes, but that's just your memory growing and adding new vocabulary. Speaking about vocabulary, check out my new vocab sheets I've been creating. Keep in Dutch.

testimonials

Martina is an amazing teacher! She's quickly able to discern your starting point, understand your language goals, and figure out your learning style. She's super knowledgeable, witty and helps explain and give nuance to the language in ways that an app can not. You get not only vocabulary and grammar, but cultural insight as well. We've really enjoyed working with her and highly highly recommend her.
