Koen Kleinstra

Nice to meet you! I'm a 25 year old teacher and language enthusiast living in and enjoying Amsterdam with all the beautiful things the city has to offer. I have over 5 years of teaching experience and have taught for other language schools as well.
Born and raised in the south of the Netherlands and understanding different dialects and pronunciations, I like to meet and help people to achieve their language goals! 🚀

About the Private courses


I have been taken privates lessons with Koen for a number of months now and can definitely say it has been highly worth it. Koen is flexible and patient while also being detail oriented and making sure mistakes don’t go uncorrected.

He provides a lot of applicable examples and spends extra time during lessons to fit personal needs or interests, even if it deviates from the lesson plan. I definitely have made way more progress with his guidance and would recommend him to anyone wanting to improve their Dutch skills.
About the private courses


Toen ik uit Brazilië terugkwam naar Nederland voelde ik me onzeker en bang om Nederlands te spreken met mensen.Ik wilde graag een sociaal leven hebben maar mijn angst was groter dan mijn wens.Dus besloot ik privéles te nemen gericht op conversatie.

Ik was heel gelukkig Koen te vinden. We deden 15 lessen van een uur met zelfstudie (huiswerk). Koen is aardig en flexibel, de lessen zijn ontspannen en de tijd vliegt! Ik kan zeggen dat ik me nu rustiger en zekerder voel omdat gesprekken beter vloeien en ik mezelf makkelijker kan uitdrukken.

What do the levels mean?
SociaTaal’s course levels are linked to the Common European Framework of Reference
for languages (CEFR). This framework is a widely recognized framework that provides a
common basis for describing language proficiency levels. A Dutch course for complete
beginners goes from A0 to A1- level. At SociaTaal we simply call it: Nederlands level 1.

A1 | Beginner: Learners at this level can understand and use basic phrases,
introduce themselves, and have simple interactions in familiar contexts.
● A2 | Elementary: Learners can comprehend and communicate in routine situations
that involve simple, direct exchanges of information on familiar topics.
● B1 | Intermediate: At this level, learners can handle a range of everyday situations,
express opinions, and produce coherent texts on familiar subjects.
● B2 | Upper Intermediate: Learners have the ability to understand complex texts,
engage in discussions, and express themselves fluently and spontaneously on
various topics.
● C1 | Advanced: Learners can comprehend and produce advanced texts, engage in
debates, and communicate effectively in professional and academic settings.
● C2 | Proficient: This is the highest level of language proficiency, where learners
can understand virtually everything they hear or read, express themselves
fluently and accurately, and use the language effectively for professional and
academic purposes.
