Delft method private classes level B1 for a Taiwan student
This Taiwan student (42) successfully took part in 6 Delft method group Modules. However, halfway to level B1, the speed of the evening classes becomes too high. Once the student switches to one-to-one Delft method classes, there is time to deepen the NT2 studies with writing exercises. In this one-to-one situation, the student chooses 2 online classes of 30 minutes per week: one for the oral part, and the other one to talk through the written homework.
Read here Esther’s comment:
I am happy with the privélessen, because they provided me with many opportunities to practice my speaking and writing. In the 30-minute speaking class, I discussed with Margreet about
different topics. Because I was the only student, it pushed me to prepare each lesson well. During class time, Margreet helped me and corrected my sentence and pronunciation. Now I can understand more difficult topics in Dutch.
In 30 mins writing class, I learned more grammar and idioms, Margreet helped me to find out my writing mistakes. She corrected each mistake and explained the reason. Now I know which grammar mistakes I make frequently and pay more attention to them.
I choose online classes. Margreet did a good job on that. The only small suggestion is that maybe more whiteboards can be used in explaining grammar, and if more example sentences can be given, that would be helpful.
Choosing privélessen for Module 8 was a great decision. Margreet helped me to find my weak parts. She also gave practical suggestions. The privélessen was not only ten classes. It is a great tool that helps me continue improving my Dutch.

Weekly Delft method online private classes for Iranian highly skilled migrant
After having started with two 30 mins classes per week, we switch to one per week. As this Iranian is working from home, one class per week of 30 minutes around lunchtime is a good solution. The one-to-one format offers this IT worker the flexibility he needs: no class when abroad and enough time for his questions, which are more analytical and in-depth than those of others.
