Language Tutoring

Our tutoring

It is important for students to be able to track their progress, and feel confident to take their exams, when their way of learning has changed quite drastically. At Una Paloma Blanca, we understand the struggle students are facing, getting ready for their exams after a year of learning online.

Extra tutoring is a great way to get students up to speed not only academically, but personally, and to feel in control of their language progress. Alongside the great work of their teachers, we at Una Paloma Blanca are offering tutoring classes in all of our major languages: Dutch, English, German, Spanish, French, Italian, Portuguese, Mandarin and Russian.

Our tutors will work with the student's current curriculum to further enrich and develop their knowledge of the subject.

How we go about it

Our teachers are trained to help you through any level, and reach both general and specific goals. At Una Paloma Blanca, we believe language learning should be fun, fast and efficient. We do this through various methods, tried and tested by our experienced teachers. We prioritise active communication, and work closely with the goals of the student so they see progress from the first lesson.

We use interactive content, current and relevant material, fun and active games, while keeping the environment centred around learning and achieving language goals. We recognise how important it is that students receive consistent teaching, that's why our tutors will work with the student's current curriculum to further enrich and develop their knowledge of the subject, keeping it relevant and in-line with their current learning pathway.

Method

Fun

Educational games and activities are an essential feature of lessons at Una Paloma Blanca.

Fast

A personalised approach allows our teachers to maximise each student's learning progress.

Efficient

Our engaging method focuses on conversational skills to help you make your learning goals a reality.

Beginner

Students become familiar with the sounds of the language, and begin using simple sentences, with the goal of having simple conversations, describing their day, introducing themselves, as well as understanding the basic grammar of the language, learning to recognise and use it.

Intermediate

Students will use their elementary level of the language to develop and enrich their knowledge. We will begin looking at more complex grammatical structures and use them to naturally describe moments in time. It is at this stage when students learn to discuss the hypothetical, dreams and aspirations.

Advanced

Students learn how to use the language for complex professional and academic purposes. We learn about natural language and structures used by native speakers. It is at this level where the student becomes able to use the language in a variety of situations. They also learn

    Because I work in a department where English skills are very important to communicate with clients, I decided to follow a private intensive English course where I could quickly brush up my English knowledge and bring my writing and speaking skills to a C1 level. I liked most that the team of teacherRead mores immediately understood my needs and they focused on my preferences helping me achieving my goals in no time.Read less

    I’m writing to thank you very much for the course you’ve organised for Egor. I was really surprised when, firstly, he agreed to do something like that on holiday, secondly, when after the first day with you he wasn’t incredibly tired as I would have expected, on the contrary, very excited. WheRead moren you asked us to speak only English during the week, I thought, ok, we’ll see! 😊 But, in fact, every time when I being forgetful say something in Russian, Egor says: “I’m sorry, Mum, I don’t understand you!” Moreover, in the evening on Monday he asked me to help him with his homework! What have you done?! 😊 How could you manage?! 😊 He never does his homework at school, maybe, during the break time before the lesson starts if the teacher is strict enough! 😊 I’m really impressed by the teaching skills of you! Thank you very much! It’s very important for me. I’ve wanted to introduce Egor to this kind of studying for a long time. He’s been never interested until now. As I told you, I’ve done a lot of language courses in England. I love it, I miss it very much. I’m happy that Egor seems to like it too. I think that in spite of the fact he’s doing a short course he’s going to have a great breakthrough in his English studies.Read less

    Speaking is always the most challenging part of any new language, and with Dutch it feels even more difficult for me personally... I just can't gather the courage to try and verbalise sentences, but I am aware it’s maybe the most important part of becoming fluent. That’s what I most appreciate iRead moren our teacher at Una Paloma Blanca - however broken we may speak, she's always encouraging, fun and has a friendly, empathetic way of correcting us. That’s highly important to keep the motivation going and practice even outside the group, in real life.Read less

    Being a marketer in a foreign country comes with its own set of challenges. Knowing the local language is not just a plus but a prerequisite. Hence, soon after I arrived in the Netherlands, I started my hunt for a language class. After scouting for days, I stumbled upon Una Paloma Blanca’s creativRead moree website. A couple of email conversations later, I found myself at their Eindhoven facility. I loved the vibe and decided to give it a shot. Soon after, it became a home away from home for me as I formed instant friendships within my group. Their one-of-a-kind learning material (an illustrative book that you would not want to put down) and immersive lessons helped me learn the language quicker than I had anticipated. Furthermore, it aided my understanding of the cultural nuances in the Dutch society that gave me an edge in interviews and formal conversations. I cannot thank my teacher enough (who went above and beyond every time) for her constant motivation and support. To all the fellow expats looking for a fun way to learn Dutch, I say go for it!Read less

    Learning a new language is challenging and Dutch is no different. Learning how to speak confidently and have day to day conversations in Dutch as an expat is challenging. During the summer course what I liked the most was that we focused on the message we were trying to convey and how to properly saRead morey it instead of only correcting us. The balance between study material and outside activities makes the course not feel as intensive and actually makes it fun. The teachers also did a good job encouraging us and motivating us into starting conversations. For anyone looking to improve their vocabulary and gain confidence in conversing in Dutch I really recommend Una Paloma Blanca’s summer courses.Read less

    Learning Dutch is hard enough, but without the right, dedicated teacher, it would be impossible for someone to learn. I have been studying at Una Paloma Blanca for almost 3 years. I find spoken Dutch the most difficult part, because the Dutch people have a certain accent which is not easy to learn. Read moreHowever, the teachers are so nice at this school and they encourage you to practice every time even if you don't speak perfectly... and basically, this is the whole point of following a Dutch course.... TO LEARN! This is what I always appreciate about my teacher: her teaching style, the way of explaining grammar to me, the empathy that she always shows me (not only to my broken speech). My teacher makes me feel part of this family. It is highly important to have the right teacher for your needs, who knows how to keep you motivated in this process of learning a new language all while integrating into Dutch society. Read less

    I love the flexibility of UPB, how supportive the teachers and workers are and how easy they made it to learn a new language. They are helping me a lot with my difficulties learning Dutch and allowing me to communicate with people in fluent Dutch.
