We zoom in on your personal situation and language requirements and start from there, working towards your personal language goal. We don’t work with a standard checklist, but design customised programs for everyone. We make use of all the study books you may already have, or will advise you to purchase certain books if necessary.
Flowently has a wide portfolio of tutors from which you can choose. It is up to you to decide wether all your sessions are with the same tutor or different tutors. Flowently tutors have their own expertise and way of teaching, and they are familiar with the Flowently method. If you would like some advice on picking your tutor, please fill in the contact form.
Flowently encourages getting out of your comfort zone and starting the challenge of improving your language skills outside of your home. This is why our sessions take place in real-life language surroundings, such as in a café, a library, in the street, in a museum, a park or somewhere else in the city where you can practice your language skills among locals. If you wish to have your session at home, please get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you know what your language level is, we can start from there. If you don’t know, you can take an assessment test and we can design a programme, tailored to your needs. For most students, speaking Dutch it the biggest challenge. Our live language sessions with a private tutor will certainly help you feel more comfortable and help you start speaking in daily life situations. Take a look at our ‘Language Tips’.

‘I’ve studied Dutch but I still don’t speak it’, is a phrase we’ve heard many times. Flowently fills the gap between theory and reality; our live sessions with a private tutor will help to get around in real life. Flowently is the modern alternative to boring classrooms at fixed hours.
In order to have a chat, you need to have (sub-) conscious knowledge of grammar. Learning a different language is in the first place becoming aware of your own language and seeing the similarities and differences. Flowently uses the method ‘Taal Tempo’ in order to improve speaking skills. Through this book you will automatically run into question about word order and conjugations of various verbs, ‘de’ and ‘het’ and more. Flowently offers a complete language package that focuses on improving conversational skills because this is the least developed part but the hardest to learn.
Flowently’s founder has over twenty years of experience in giving language trainings to expats and is the point of contact for all tutors and students. All tutors receive trainings and are supervised. The student receives an evaluation request after each session so Flowently can receive third party input about performance of its tutors. All remarks, questions and feedback are welcome. Also for 2019 Flowently had the NRTO quality mark.
When you have a number of people that is interested in doing group sessions, we would love to see what we could do for you. Our standard sessions are for 1 or 2 persons at a time, but please get in touch and we will get back to you about available tutors for groups.
