Outline Elementary Dutch Course:
‘Lekker!’ ‘Leuk!’ ‘Gezellig!‘ Since you arrived in the Netherlands you’ve heard these words a few times, but what do they actually mean? And what is it about life in the Netherlands that makes it so incredibly ‘Leuk’, ‘Lekker’ and ‘Gezellig’? You need a Dutch survival kit.
In this program, we’ll be working on the basics of the language. Everyday Dutch is our main focus. ‘In a café’, ‘At the market’ and ‘In a restaurant’ are just a few examples of themes we work on at this stage. Sound like fun? Or ‘leuk’, as we say.
Then join the Elementary Dutch course at the Expat Center. Maybe you’ve just landed and you’d like to get straight to it. Or perhaps you’ve been here a few years, and now is the time to start learning. Either way, this is the Dutch course to start you off, and learn the all-important basics of the language.

Biography Ms. Kiki Levy:
Ms. Kiki Levy studied at the University of Amsterdam. She holds a Bachelor’s degree in Anthropology, and a Master’s in International Development Studies. Ms. Levy also trained as an English language teacher, and holds a TEFL/TESOL teaching certification. With a Dutch mother and an English-speaking Canadian father Kiki is completely bilingual.
Before going to university Kiki travelled extensively in Asia. Her travels were about more than just sun, beaches and food. She also decided to volunteer, teaching English in both Cambodia and Indonesia. She also supported an Environment Awareness program in Indonesia.
After completing her university studies, Kiki resumed her travels and went to Latin America for two years. During this two-year period, she found employment as an English teacher at the Universidad de la Sierra Sur in Mexico, where she assisted adult learners in preparing for TOEFL-exams. She also worked as an English teacher at a language school in Antigua, Guatemala.
It is often said that the best thing about travel is coming home. Kiki’s wish to return to her homeland also brought her to teaching Dutch. Having traveled far and wide Kiki has found that teaching Dutch is also a great way to meet interesting people from all over the world. So really, Kiki’s travels continue – at home – in teaching Dutch to internationals.
The sense of travel and adventure is key to Kiki’s approach to teaching Dutch. Whether you’ve just landed in the Netherlands or you’ve been here for some time, learning with Kiki is a journey through the Dutch language and culture. She makes language learning not just effective, but also fun. Let Ms. Levy be your travel guide through the language of the Lowlands. Happy travels! Or as we say in Dutch: Goede reis en veel plezier!
