Avalon is an incredible teacher. She has a knack for bringing people from diverse backgrounds together in a comfortable and engaging environment, which is highly conducive to learning.

I took a beginner level course with Avalon and it was exactly what I was looking for. I started not knowing how to say a single word in Dutch and in the last class, when we went outside to talk to Dutch people using what we had learned, I found that I was able to comfortably have basic conversations. I know that it was because of Avalon's teaching approach that was organized and flexible, challenging and fun, that I was able to get to this point.

Not only did I learn about the Dutch language, but I also learned about the culture from Avalon's classes. She was always happy to answer our questions that we had about living in the Netherlands and even things I had never thought to ask. She goes above and beyond to make her students feel comfortable in the classroom as well as in the community.

I would recommend Avalingua to tourists and expats alike. Many people will say you don't need Dutch to travel or live in the Netherlands, but I believe that the experience you will have if you do take Dutch courses with Avalon will be much more enriching and exciting, as you will be able to interact with locals and understand the culture in a deeper way.

Ok, para mi en lo personal las clases de holandés fueron muy buenas. Yo tuve la oportunidad de tomar clases con dos personas y fue muy divertido. Salimos a la calle hicimos juegos en internet, para mi es la primera vez que aprendo un idioma y difícil.

No hay que preocuparse la profesora Avalon siempre busca la mejor manera, como dije antes con juegos saliendo a la calle a interactuar con otras personas e intercambios para mejorar a la hora de hablar que es la parte más difícil para algunas personas. Avalon es una profesora muy especial con mucha paciencia y dedicada con lo que hace, note que para ella es un placer ayudar a otras personas hablar su propio idioma. Elija la a ella no se van arrepentir.

Dankjewel mevrouw Avalon

We moved to Rotterdam six months ago and we wanted to learn a bit of Dutch.

We met Avalon during an AvaLingua Exchange and we asked her to give us some lessons.

We must say that by the end of the first course we are very satisfied. We have not only learnt the basics of the Dutch grammar, but we have also improved our writing, speaking and listening skills.

We are very happy that the course improved our spoken Dutch, in fact, we are finally able to have basic conversations with our Dutch friends.

Since we both work full time and at the end of the day we were really tired, Avalon organized the course in a nice and interactive way, with small games, dialogues, songs, riddles and this made the lessons more dynamic and easy to follow.

Truly recommended 🙂

Conversational and practical.

Through Avalon's class we not only looked to learnt the underlying grammar and vocabulary, but how to engage with different scenarios to make everyday Dutch encounters that much easier.

Her style of teaching was informal and personal, meaning that we all received enough 1-to-1 attention while also feeling comfortable to jump in and participate.

The lessons with Avalon are agile and concrete, you do not see the time passing! The groepjes are small so we can all talk, improve our speech and practice the grammar. The friendly nature of the classes makes us trust Avalon and each other and that makes learning much more fun!

I highly recommend!

Avalon is an amazing teacher, very kind and accommodating. Gezellige docent 🙂 I followed the A1 course, because I was interested to learn the language. Another + is that it offers a full online class which is very convenient for a busy professional like me, no need to rush in traffic, I just have to login to the class and meet the group ready for the next lesson! Now, I have more vocabulary and better understanding of basic grammar. During this A1 course, you will learn to make sense of the day-to-day Dutch words you hear. And you will start understanding some of the basic Dutch conversation. I’m excited to continue my learning journey in the A2 group. Dank je wel, Avalon / Avalingua! Tot ziens. 🙂

Before I started my Dutch Lessons at AvaLingua, I had a lack of confidence in speaking and grammar. Now, I am more comfortable with the language. I also like how each class is structured into time slots. You do different things in the same class so you keep your mind active all the time. I chose the classes at AvaLingua because of the small group courses and affordable fees. Are you considering classes with AvaLingua? Go for it! Don't have second thoughts.

I followed the A1 course, and soon will start with A2 course. The A1 course was very entertaining, I like the variety of material and how Avalon makes learning Dutch fun. The material provided also makes it easier to understand, it is very clear. I decided to take classes with AvaLingua because they are online and it was recommended by a friend. I recommend the course! But be motivated to do homeworks as well, otherwise you don’t learn. Go for it! 🙂

AvaLingua is a great place to learn Dutch. I follow private classes with Avalon and she has seen me grow from A0 to B1 very quickly. Although it is pricy, it's worth every cent. Avalon is a fantastic and patient teacher, she makes sure I understand all of the Dutch grammar and language rules before going to the next topic. The private classes with Avalon also offer a great deal of flexibility, so I can discuss a multitude of topics and ideas with her, especially ones that relate to my job. I highly recommend her if you're looking to learn Dutch at a deeper level!
