Private Dutch lessons || online via Teams or in person in Heerlen
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 6 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.

Let's say you would like to learn Dutch for your work, we can always focus specifically on vocabulary in your work field. But we always discuss general vocabulary that's good for everyone. It's about finding that balance and we will do that together.

Martina is a great teacher who adapts her lessons and materials to the expectations of the student. She has incredible patience and the ability to explain intricate grammar issues. Her lessons are thematically diverse. Martina is a person with a warm disposition and after the first few lessons you feel completely at ease with her. Thanks to this, being taught by her is a pleasure, not a necessary obligation. Martina has been teaching me for several years and it is also a great pleasure to see how much heart and commitment she put into improving her skills in teaching Dutch to foreigners.
Lessons are 60 or 90 minutes. Are you interested in lessons for kids from the age of 12? I have the same packages for kids but at different rates. Check my Terms & Conditions for more information or contact me if you'd like.
