Lingo Amsterdam is based in the capital of the Netherlands, in which many people experienced the joy of learning this interesting language called Dutch. No, not Deutsch - that's German. And to keep on tumbling into the confusion of a new language: wie in Dutch means who in German, and who in English is the same as hoe in Dutch, which means how. When you're curious to untangle this, you might enjoy a Dutch class. If you just want to know what Lingo does, keep on reading.
Language learning is not about knowing all the grammar, but about connecting to people in a way that's new. Uncomfortable at first, but nothing beats the realisation that you're implicitly applying a rule perfectly. And that's the feeling we're going for at Lingo. At Lingo Amsterdam we are genuinely interested in language and teaching - now add some humor to make the process more fun.
Lingo Amsterdam was founded by Joos Jonges, a language lover at heart. Quitting Theatre School - because she found studying Shakespeare's texts more interesting than performing them - she realised that it was in fact language that makes her tail wiggle. After a BA in General Linguistics, she finished her MA in Language, Culture and Cognition cum laude. Her specialisation in multilingualism, language identity and language teaching form a solid base for her Dutch teaching skills. Also, her joy in sharing music, poetry and performance result in classes that are never dull.
