All lessons are adapted to the level of the students and their needs. I focus on high frequency words in vocabulary and teach the principles of grammar in contexts and in the simplest way possible. I mainly use Skype, but have also taught using Discord and Botim. My approach is simply to make the learning process stressfree and fun! It is possible!
I am a retired university lecturer and teacher at government and private schools, now teaching students from around the world Afrikaans online from Cape Town. I have many years' experience teaching Afrikaans as additional/foreign language. In my post-graduate studies I focused on bi- and multilingualism and language acquisition. It has been very enjoyable working with adults who need Afrikaans to communicate, eg. in financial institutions, missionaries, scientists, workers at NGOs, etc. These beginners learn very quickly. I set, marked and moderate final examination papers (Afrikaans as First Additional Language) for matrics, wrote articles and presented papers on aspects Afrikaans. As tutor I have worked with learners doing the CAPS curriculum, Cambridge courses (in different parts of the world) and have found it most rewarding. Results have been excellent with students getting up to 90% and A star for orals.
