From 2014, more than 700 students studied English, Dutch or Russian at Eurolinguaclub.Almost every month somebody passes for the citizenship exam (Inburgeringsexamen).We are very happy about that. So are our students.Their recommendation can be seen here https://www.eurolinguaclub.eu/index.php/ru/

Nowadays more teachers work at Eurolinguaclub. Our teachers have taken a special course of Eurolinguaclub's teaching method.

During the lesson we practice all kinds of language skills: reading, listening, writing and speaking.

We do this using the following methods: interactive, communicative, TPR, TPRS.

During the first conversation with a student, we ask what goal he wants to achieve and how much time he intends to spend on it.

Then we taylor a unique plan. The purpose of learning a foreign language is to communicate in this language.

We are always aware of this primary goal, but apart from this goal, we set each lesson a small goal, which the student must achieve during the lesson.

That is the reason for the success that Eurolinguaclub has achieved in these years.

 

 Alina Ermakova

Alina is about bilingual.

She was born in the family of a philologist, so the terms that are used in linguistics are everyday vocabulary for her.

In addition, her family has had teachers in every generation since her great – grandmother.

Being among teachers is a normal environment for her.

Except her passion –foreign languages, she studied creative business at the University of Applied Science in Utrecht. Her thesis was about development of new directions in the Eurolinguaclub. The ideas, method of teaching  and plan were approved by the University, so we can safely entrust the development of the school to a certified specialist.

When people talk to Alina, they trust her, because she is a good teacher by nature.

Foreign languages surrounded her from birth (first English, then French and Spanish, after relocating to the Netherlands from Russia, when she was a child, Dutch).

She studied at a Dutch secondary school, the Dutch University of Applied Science, worked at NaschoolEnzo in “Cals College IJsselstein”.

Alina has passed not only powerful language training, but also courses of the methodology of teaching foreign languages.

Classes are provided in Dutch, but if necessary, some points can be explained in Russian or English, which are used as bridge languages.

 

 Jeroen Zuijderwijk

Jeroen was born in the Netherlands and is one of our first teachers at the Eurolinguaclub. Besides the fact that he comes from a family of highly educated teachers, he has developed a great passion for teaching.

For example, Jeroen started teaching at a secondary school, Cals College IJsselstein, immediately after high school, where he explains various subjects to students. He was promoted to supervisor at the Grafisch Lyceum in Utrecht, where he still helps students with their studies.

In addition to the Dutch language, Jeroen has a very good command of the English language and even speaks a little Russian. Jeroen has almost finished his study, and he wants to continue his study by studying neurosciences at Utrecht University.

In his classes you will learn how to conduct conversations in literary Dutch, you will read Dutch literature, in addition you will improve your writing level and you will develop the feeling for the language which is an essential characteristic for those who have ambitious plans such as communicating with highly skilled Dutch.Jeroen was born in the Netherlands and is one of our first teachers at the Eurolinguaclub.

Amber Zuijderwijk

Amber is a student of English and Dutch at the University of Applied Sciences in Utrecht. Her native language is Dutch. She learns about the theory of English linguistics, pedagogy and teacher skills, whereupon she processes this knowledge in her job as a tutor and teacher.

Amber has been teaching for more than four years at different tutor organisations and schools. She has taught different age groups and levels of English and Dutch. This varies from children to adults. Because of this variety of experience, Amber has excellent communication skills and is capable of analysing an individual’s needs. Additionally, she has worked with special needs students as well, which requires patience and a special approach.

For a special Honours course at the University of Applied Sciences, Amber developed a training for performance anxiety. Multiple individuals who encounter fear of failure have tested this training and stated that it helped to overcome their fear.

Developing the four skills of language (reading, listening, speaking, writing) will be the most important, general goal during the English and Dutch lessons. They will be acquired through fun and different activities, such as role plays, presentations, authentic literature, educational games, et cetera. However, every lesson also will have a separate goal, which the student needs to achieve during the lesson. Additionally, other sub-skills, such as cultural awareness, grammar and vocabulary, will be introduced in the lessons as well.

 

 Daniela Parga

Daniela Parga is a young Argentinian, born in Buenos Aires. At the moment she is in her 4th year of the study Communication Science at the University of Buenos Aires. (UBA). Next year she is going to broaden her knowledge by specializing in public opinion and publicity.  

Daniela is not only a native Spanish speaker, from Argentina, but she has also been surrounded by multiple foreign languages from a very young age since she has family members from different countries. Her Italian grandfather has taught her Italian. Moreover, she has relatives in France, who she is been practising French with on a daily basis. Besides Spanish, Italian and French, she also speaks English very well! Therefore, Daniela is able to help a student master Spanish by using one of the above-mentioned languages as bridge – languages, if needed.  

Daniela did not only grow up in multilinguistic
surroundings, but she has broadened her knowledge about different countries and languages by numerous language – exchange programmes that she has completed. She passes her passion for foreign languages to her students and encourages them to learn Spanish language and get to know more about Spanish / Latin-American cultures in a very 
pleasant and entertaining way. During her lessons you will learn grammar, vocabulary and most importantly, you will be able to practice your speech with a native speaker.  

Isn’t it a great opportunity to learn one of the most spoken languages in the world with a native speaker, from Argentina?  

 

 Daria Afonina (Bobyr)

Daria is a professional English teacher with 8 years working experience in secondary education and language courses in Ukraine, since 2015 she has been permanently residing in the Netherlands. In 2006 Daria graduated from the National Pedagogical University named after M.P.Dragomanov with a degree in English Language and Foreign Literature (diploma is confirmed by the Netherlands Ministry of Education). She also followed a number of professional courses, including, in particular, Consecutive Interpretation Courses at the Linguistic Center "Ukraine-Europe "(Kiev, 2012).
In the Netherlands Daria worked at the Center of Development for Bilingual Children (Amersfoort, 2016-2017) with the kids of 6-7 years old. Her professional life is also connected with journalistics (weekly edition "Mirror of the Week", Kiev; magazine "Rus Monaco", Amersfoort), behalve that Daria runs her own creative project making paintings on textile.
Most of Daria's teaching activities have always been devoted to private lessons. Only through the close contact with the student, understanding of his educational goals, interests and opportunities you can drow up an effective individual training program. Her target audience are both children (from 6 years old) and adults with completely different learning needs: someone wants to learn how to have a relaxed conversation while traveling, someone is completely lost in the maze of English grammar. During her lessons, Daria is ready to use Russian, Ukrainian or Dutch as auxiliary languages, if the situation requires it. Training materials and workload are always selected individually.

 

The advantage of lessons with Daria is that she has a broad understanding of the educational systems of two countries - Ukraine and the Netherlands. Thanks to this, she manages to take the best of each of them: the logical and solid methodological basis of the Ukrainian system in her lessons is perfectly combined with true Dutch ease and maintaining a keen interest in learning.

Isabel Suárez-Llanos

My name is Isabel. I was born in Spain, in Madrid. I am a Spanish teacher and a philologist, so I have always loved languages. Spanish is the one I love most, not for any specific reason, but because it is the only one I have full command of…! Teaching Spanish is my passion. I have also been always very interested in helping people (I also work as a volunteer teaching Spanish to the deprived). I have been training myself for a long time in how to teach a language, not just regarding contents, but also how to manage a language class and how to treat and deal with language learning students. So I try to do my best in every class, but in return I receive even more from them: the satisfaction of discovering that they are happy with their learning and that they have assimilated and acquired what I have taught.

Dmitriy Furmanov

Hello or Zdravstvuyte! Let me introduce myself. My name's Dmitriy Furmanov. I am a Teacher of English and Russian.
I have been teaching English as a foreign language since I graduated from university with a degree in Philology in 1997 and embarked on my teaching career being an English Teacher at school. Then I went on to be a private tutor of the English language before moving on to London, UK to do a professional development course for teachers of English. Also, I continued studying English at Proficiency level as I strongly believe in continuous professional development. Living and studying in the UK for three years provided me with deep knowledge of the British life and culture as well, which contributed to acquiring more expertise in the English language. After moving back to Moscow, Russia, I started working as a Teacher of the English and Russian languages at international language schools and multinational companies delivering both group and one-to-one lessons. The experience I gained in my work was later applied in my further teacher development course in the years of 2010 and 2011. It was the In-service Certificate in English Language Teaching delivered by the ELT Department of Cambridge University which is accepted internationally and entitles teachers to work overseas. The course was quite demanding and challenging, but, at the same time, it gave a lot of insights into the teaching profession.
While residing in London, I was approached to teach the Russian language as a foreign language to people of different walks of life and background. Being both a learner and a teacher of the foreign language, I was fully aware of how difficult or easy and engaging the learning process could be if appropriate methods of teaching and activities were used in lessons. For example, that knowledge and methods successfully helped teach Russian to a group of Japanese nationals from Starter to Pre-intermediate level when I was residing in Tokyo in 2006.
My experience of teaching Russian and English to speakers of other languages has demonstrated that, generally, you do not need to reinvent the wheel, that is, simple teaching methods and techniques seem to work best with either beginners or more advanced learners. These include the concept of teaching and practice the simple before moving on to the complex, using the communicative approach that allows students to develop their speaking skills, grammar and vocabulary are best understood and practiced in context, various visual materials including pictures and videos prompt learners to speak more, etc. Of course, all of these may not and should be deployed in the plan of the same lesson as each one has different aims and, therefore, methods to achieve them. Bearing the abovementioned facts in mind, I am convinced that teachers should approach every language learner individually, namely, they should be taught with methods and practice that really meets their needs and aims in life based on their knowledge and skills of the subject they study. All this put together makes the learning process meaningful and engaging.
I believe that your motivation to learn Russian or English along with my expertise in the subjects will create a synergetic effect enabling you, as a language learner, to achieve results that will make a change in your life.
Now I’m based in Russia, and as everyone else affected by the pandemic, I am working on my professional and personal development by reading books, participating in ELT webinars, and meeting my colleagues online. Besides, playing tennis and experimenting with food and coffee recipes help me relax in my downtime.

 

Sergey Miloradov

My name is Sergey Miloradov and I have been teaching English for over 30 years.
I entered the Irkutsk State Pedagogical Institute of Foreign Languages not so much out of love for the English language, but because almost all of my family were school teachers and university professors with post graduate degrees – my grandfather, grandmother, mother, two aunts, and other more distant relatives. So I can safely call myself the successor of the dynasty. Love for English came later.
I graduated from the Institute with "honors" and immediately after graduation began teaching English to teachers-to-be. In the correspondence student groups, my youngest student was two years older than me, and the oldest student was good for fathers.
I especially enjoyed teaching English phonetics. I once calculated that in four years of work at the Foreign Languages Institute I had about 1500 classes on phonetics!
In the 90s, I did an internship in England, worked in the USA for some months; founded a private language school with my fellow colleagues, translated American science fiction. But the most important event of that time for me was a meeting with an Academician Galina Kitaygorodskaya. First, I did an internship at the Center for the Intensive Training of Foreign Languages at the National University of Moscow, and then completed my Ph.D. thesis under the guidance of G. Kitaygorodskaya. Naturally, the thesis was on the methodology of foreign languages teaching. It was after working with that acknowledged expert that there are no blanks in my profession left for me.
Then for many years I was in charge of the Foreign Languages Chair at one of the Irkutsk universities, and now I am engaged in private teaching and develop manuals for teaching English. I even wrote a book in Russian about the adventures of a girl in the country of the English language - "The Adventures of Alyonka in Grammarland".
