  • Description

    I am married to a Dutch Lady and we wish to bring our children up bilingual in Dutch and English. The stumbling block, I think, is that our children would be more inclined to use the language if I spoke Dutch at home rather more than the occasional 'Dank u wel'. and 'Dag'. My wife speaks to them - and myself for non-urgent/un complicated matters - in Dutch, and I have been using the Klare Taal book to learn basic Dutch grammar.

    H owever, I feel that more practise with listening and speaking and, therefore, thinking in the language would initially be more useful to me at present. We visit my wife's family in the Netherlands at least twice a year, and we do have access to Dutch satellite TV and radio.

    Rea listically, I could only spend one 1-2 hour session per week, but have the advantage that I could practise what conversation I have learnt with my wife, and could also put in the grammatical work using Klare Taal.

    I would be willing to try online tuition (presumably via Skype) or face-to-face if it proved to be more effective. At present, I have weekday mornings available since I work afternoons/ev enings (though this may change in future), and with my children just back to school, this would be an ideal time to start tuition.

    If the tutor could focus on speaking and listening practical day-to-day 'household' Dutch, (knowledge of the Brabant regional accent would be a plus!) that would be a great start.
