COVID-19 Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Are you teaching live (face-to-face) classes again?
Yes! Due to the lifting of certain COVID-19 restrictions by the Dutch government, MORE than les has started to teach live courses again at companies. We are always monitoring the COVID-19 developments in the Netherlands closely, and are very conscientious about the safety of both our students and teachers.
What happens if I have a cold?
We follow the RIVM guidelines of the Dutch government very carefully and ask any student or teacher to stay at home if they’re experiencing any COVID-19 related symptom(s). We have a wonderful group of teachers who are always ready to fill in if needed, so the class can continue safely. And we will send the student(s) who are unable to join the summary of the class and the homework for next week.
Do you offer private Dutch coaching online and offline?
Yes! If you are looking for Dutch tutoring to reach a specific goal like passing the inburgeringsexamen, or if you would like to improve your Dutch in a personalized one-on-one setting then private Dutch coaching is for you! Reach out to us to plan your first session.
How many students have had classes online?
We have taught over 400 students online, and are still counting!! After work, students join one of our courses and learn Dutch. Check our reviews here to read what our students have said about our online Dutch courses.
How will the online classes be different from face-to-face classes?
Besides the fact that you can enjoy the class from the comfort of your couch via Zoom, online classes will not differ largely from face-to-face-classes. We are with a maximum of 10 students. We do a lot of online games and use break-out rooms within Zoom, so you can practice conversations with smaller groups and learn Dutch online in a fun way! Our classes are energetic as well as informative. Thanks to the creativity of our teachers, classes are still as practical, interactive, and personal as before. As with offline courses, we will give you more or less 1 hour of homework per week.
What technical equipment do I need to attend the online classes?
All you need is a stable internet connection and a device with a camera and microphone so we can connect with each other and have conversations in Dutch. Zoom can be accessed via a browser and does not require the installation of an app or program.
Can I miss an online or live class??
We understand that you might not be able to attend every class, either because you have a deadline for work, a Zoom-call with the States, or a date that you have been looking forward to, since ever. We will send you a summary of what we have done in the class and will send you the homework. Do you have a question about the information you have missed, then please send an email to your teacher, and he/she will help you as soon as possible.
How safe is Zoom?
To ensure maximum safety, all of our calls are routed via European servers (if possible). If your company has compliance issues with Zoom, we are happy to work out a solution for your team.
