I would like to recommend this language school to people who are looking for improving Dutch or even starting from scratch. Kickstart school can handle it professionally in many aspects, like timing, learning structure and materials as well as teachers who is patient, well-understandable and caring. I have done the private courses with Sanne, highly recommended!
Goede ervaring bij Kickstart. Profesionele docent met veel kennis van Nederlandse grammatica en spelling.
KickStart is a great company that prepares you well for the TOEFL test. They know almost everything about the test and are focusing on becoming familiar with the format. A good advantage of KickStart is that they provide you with homework and that you can ask for more homework during the week if you want to focus on a particular part.
Uitstekkend! Ik ben entusiast
Kathleen our instructor was always effective and well prepared. I am really impressed how quickly she pivoted to online classes when we could no longer take in person classes. I was also pleased with the approach she took in our learning and how it quickly progressed under her guidance.
Kind and professional
Het was leerzaam.
I appreciate the pragmatism of the course (making a presentation, reading books, film fragments), I like the small group setting (5-6), I also like that we have quite a lot of homework (good practice) In this course I found it too much the explanation of the grammar (I can understand it quite quickly), I would put more emphasis on the practice, mainly oral exercises. Talking, talking, talking.
I will definitely continue my studies here.
Very flexible and understanding staff, engaging teaching and well thought out lesson plans. Highly recommended.
Really good quality courses. very professionnal teacher, nice and caring. Ducth language is not that easy, however, the way the lessons are lead, makes it smooth. Hapy also to have met people from many foreign country, despite the covids measures.
Very good experience, teacher and supporting materials very good. Fast paced yet great learning experience. I will recommend it.
This was a very complete learning experience, with a lot of content and materials. The lessons are interesting and very fast-paced, which is great (but can be a bit frustrating at times so you need to be a bit patient!). It serves as an excellent base to the Dutch language.
Very structured lessons!
Thank you so much for this course. It was very focused and intensive which is exactly what I was looking for. I wonder if there could be a lightly longer version as well.
I liked all the grammar being explained at once and that now I have a goal, a list of everything that I should learn and how in one place.
I love the way the teacher went through the whole grammar and had the time and the patience to explain every exercise to us.
It was my second time to take a class in Kickstart school. It was via Zoom but I could follow everything. The teacher explained everything very clearly with a lot of exercises. I did not mind to take classes via Zoom since I could save a lot of time since I didn't need to travel to the school.
I had good experience and i feel if the speaking time will be increase its much more interesting. I prefer more interaction and more pressure for speaking.
I liked my teacher who is really passionate about improving her course by asking feedback and applying them in her course. I really recommend our teacher 'Mandy de Waal '!
The course covered many topics. The teacher was very encouraging and interactive. I liked the activities and the homework. Maybe I would have included some exams to force myself to study a bit more. But the explanations were very clear and helpful. I can notice an improvement after the course.
Very nice course. I have enjoyed it and learnt a lot. I also liked the teacher, she was very fun. I appreciated that she always took the time to explain things to us again.
Well-structured, fit for purpose and well-designed course. Great teachning and materials provided. Thank you!
