Workshop Tutors of Dutch: 28 June 2018

workshopA recent ALCS survey has shown that Dutch is getting increasingly popular within Institution wide Language Programmes. We are keen to support the IWLP tutors, which is why we are organising a half-day workshop for Tutors of Dutch in the UK and Ireland.

This ALCS Workshop is first and foremost an opportunity to meet colleagues from other institutions, to swap ideas and share good practice. But we have also invited an expert, drs. Vera de Bot (Universiteit Amsterdam). Vera is an experienced Dutch Language tutor (Sheffield, Philadelphia, Amsterdam), author of Dutch course books, and a master at new techniques, games and suggestions to engage language learners.
