About us

New in this country, need Dutch for your work, study or just for some interaction with people around you?

Dutch Course, of Course!

Your lessons are based on your needs, your way and your pace of learning.

One thing is always in place: your Dutch lessons are going to be unconventional, effective and always fun!

Just like you, the founder of Dutch Course? Of Course! came to the Netherlands from another country. She knows how it feels when you want to say something but do not dare to do so, when you try to speak Dutch but people just look strangely at you and ask you “what are you saying?” She knows how it feels when the colleagues talk to you in English but a few minutes later switch to Dutch. She also recalls the joy of the first time of being able to understand the jokes, to follow the movies nearly without looking at the subtitles and to be able to build strong friendships with the Dutch.

Sophia helped me with level A1 Dutch. She is very patient, clear and concise with her teaching style. I found this approach very helpful in achieving my goal. I highly recommend Sophia because she is an absolute delight to learn Dutch with. I look forward to more lessons with her in future.

Sophia is not only a great teacher, she’s also patient and willing to share about her culture and learn from her students as well. 

Super bedankt Sophia voor je geweldige lesgeven!

In a short period of time Sophia empowered me to speak, listen and write in a language that was completely new to me. Sophia didn’t hesitate to adapt her lesson when she realized that I was interested in a specific topic. I will truly miss our Dutch lessons!                                Anja from Germany

I was a student of Sophia from May 2019 until June 2020. I would (and I have) highly recomend Sophia to anyone who wants to learn Ducth. The lessons are very well structured and Sophia has a very positive attitude. Sophia really understands when/where you are struggeling and supports you on that and is also very patient. Looking forward to the next level :)

I highly recommend Sophia as a language teacher. She was my Dutch tutor and my experiences with her were only positive. She was supportive and encouraging, and she adapted her teaching methods according to my preferences. She is not only a great teacher, but also a really nice person with whom it is easy to get along with.                                                            Joni from Finland

In order to work as a doctor in the Netherlands you have to register in the BIG. (Beroepen in de Individuelle Gezondheidszorg) And if you want to register you need to do a language test in Netherlands and get a certification on B2+ Level. With the help of Sophia Riemersma I passed my exam successful at December 2019. I can highly recommend her. The work with her is effective and she is sympathetic teacher with a sense of humour. I worked hard but I also had a lot of fun. Thank you very much, Sophia!
