Tan: Positive surprise is the self learning that Delft method encourages. I learn a lot from the Module 1 Dutch Lessons.
The greatest difference between the Delft method and the traditional method of language learning, is the correction. Normally the student will be received assignment and then the teacher will correct it, but we don’t do it here. That’s a negative surprise.
For now I prefer Delft method, because it is flexible. I prefer self learning, but I want to practise also writing and grammar and I want more time for every lesson.
Students of Delft method Module 1 January 2021 compare Delft method to traditional language learning methods
Sahana: That I can understand and talk a few simple sentences with my neighbours and the staff during shopping after five classes, is a positive surprise.
On the other hand I need to invest more and more time in learning, as basics are not covered in Delft method. In traditional method, everything is taught from scratch: it is more of spoon feeding. In Delf method students need to learn by themselves the words and the sentences and interact in the class.
However with Delftse methode we can learn quickly if the method is correctly followed by students!
Positive surprise is the teacher
Sigita: Positive surprise : I like our teacher Margreet very much and the way she is working with us so patiently and effectively. For me she is the teacher number one, she is really professional. Thank you!
As to the method: you can also practice Dutch online yourself, the taped recordings are clear and understandable. In this method you need to work on your own first before you practice it in the conversation class,
However I would like to have a longer lesson so that I could communicate longer with my group members.
Guru: I have not underwent other language courses so I am not sure of the differences. I assume that in traditional method of learning Dutch we would have learned basics very well.
Nevertheless, Delftse methode is the fastest way to start speaking simple sentences.
The Delft method is straightforward and intensive
Shamira: The Delft method is pretty straightforward and intensive, also interactive with other students. I can learn to speak Dutch quickly within the time frame.
As a conclusion I would definitely encourage the Delft method as we are spending the time more speaking and practicing Dutch with each other than just writing and listening.
Melike: Firstly, it is really a surprise for me that I can understand the subjects without studying too much Dutch grammar.
This course is the course that I studied most and learned more. If I go to a classic course for the same time, I won’t be able to learn more than in this course.
If I can study everyday at least two hours, I will absolutely prefer the Delftse methode.
