Adari: E-learning is easier to flex around my schedule. It is useful for me as I have a very busy schedule, so it was difficult to find a course that had the right timing/balance.
In the online conversation classes I find it useful to hear other persons speak. The interpretation plus correction from the teacher help me to learn quicker.
Similarly I like that the aim is to speak the total lesson time in Dutch. This also helps with the speed of learning and interpretation.
Overall I am very positive about this course.
Saving time with Delft method Module 1, september 2020
Vy: The e-learning saves a lot of time to travel to school for the course.
In addition, the Delft Method makes me intensively study. I can already apply what I learn in the text book to my daily conversation.
In conclusion: my feelings about the Delftse methode with Suitcase talen are positive. I do learn a lot. I will continue with other modules.
E-learning is easier to fit in my schedule with my child
Pritha: With the e-learning of the Delftse methode we can learn in our own comfort zone. I can fit the learning in my schedule with my child. Beside there is no travelling to anywhere, so that time is getting saved.
Besides, in the online classes with the group I like the way we discuss the lessons in our own way. It helps me to relate the lesson I read for that particular class.
Last, the group lessons of Suitcase talen are very compact and composed. My teacher is strict yet very helpful and cooperates with us by speaking slowly and clearly.
The Delft method has hardly any rules
Arseniy (not in the picture): The Delftse methode seemed to me quite promising. I feel that the idea of listening texts and using only those words that appeared in the text allows me to learn gradually the new words and to start use them inmediately.
However, I don’t like the following regarding the Delftse methode:
Firstly, It does not start from ABC. There is neither reading rules nor pronunciation trainings in the course.
Suitcase talen: In the e-learning materials all texts and new words are presented with the pronunciation. But yes, it is true that in the Delftse methode are no written rules for reading or pronunciation.
Secondly, the grammar is presented in a confusing way. If I have a grammar question regarding something from the test, often I cannot find the answer in the book.
Suitcase talen: Indeed there are only a few explicit grammar rules in the Delftse methode. However, questions can be asked in the end of the group class with the teacher. Most importantly we added two Grammar Modules Delftse methode in which a teacher explains grammar and answers questions.
