Learning Dutch in a fun way - April & June

Date: 17 & 24 April 2021 and 5 & 12 June 2021

Location: Het Talentenhuis l Meer en Vaart 290, Amsterdam

This training, which will be in Dutch, is an inspiring alternative for, among others, language trainers of alpha students. You are cordially invited!


The Alternative Ways toolkit

The toolkit ‘Alternative Ways to Learn a Language’ was created in cooperation with various partners in a European project. A new method for NT2 teachers and other language trainers who teach (both physically and online) low-literacy and ‘slow learners’.

This alternative and innovative toolkit enables you as a teacher, volunteer or language buddy to create tailor-made lessons for adults who have difficulty learning a language, using informal learning resources. You also work on increasing their self-confidence and finding a place in society. By the way, the informal exercises in this toolkit are fun and useful for everyone who wants to learn a language!


Training Alternative Ways

Els Streefkerk, trainer of Storytelling Centre, lets you experience what it is like to learn in an approachable way: with pleasure, without a book, notebook or manual.

Learn how to work according to the six building blocks, which form the basis of this method. All kinds of exercises from the toolkit will pass by automatically; exercises you can immediately use in your own lesson group/language café!

After you have completed session 2, you will have mastered the way of thinking.

Duration of the training

In principle, the training will take place physically at the Storytelling Centre in Amsterdam and will last for 2 parts of a day: 2 sessions from 10:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m., including a short break and a simple lunch. Naturally we will provide a corona proof environment.

If the corona situation does not allow for a physical meeting, we can give the training online, although that is a shorter version: 2 x 3 hours from 10:30 am – 1:30 pm.


We can also offer a variation on the training: for trainers who are not yet used to teaching online, we offer a short introduction to digital skills of the teacher, for example: how to work in break-out rooms (Zoom) and which other smart and inspiring programmes are there to use in your lesson?
