Hogeschool van Amsterdam

Language Consultation Dutch and English

The Student Affairs department of the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences offers students one-on-one Dutch or English language tutoring. During these consultation hours, you can sit together with a Dutch or English teacher and discuss the feedback you have received on a report or writing assignment, improve your reading strategies, or work on your presentation skills.

The language consultation hours take place on the 8th floor of the Leeuwenburg location. Signing up is easy. Use the link and select a time slot that suits you. If your question concerns writing, please send along your text, including the feedback you have been given by your teacher. Please, do this two days prior to the appointment, so your tutor can sufficiently prepare for your meeting. 

Learning to master a foreign language at a university level takes a lot of motivation, time and effort. Students are welcome to use up six of our 50-minute sessions per year. If you decide to contact us, please be aware that we expect you to be serious about your goals and willing to put in the energy required. It is also important to bear in mind that we like to use our time efficiently, which means that if you have made an appointment, we will expect you to show up. If you are unable to come, please notify us as soon as possible, so other students can make an appointment. Also, we would like to inform you that we are unfortunately unable to revise or re-write reports or your entire thesis. Our aim is to help you to do a better job yourself, not to do it for you. 

We look forward to seeing you soon.
