Workshop for tutors of Dutch in the UK and Ireland

Teaching Dutch to audiences in the UK and Ireland: Online event

20-21 November 2020

The Association for Low Countries Studies (ALCS) organised its first language teacher workshop which was delivered online and was open to all teachers of Dutch in adult education in the UK, Ireland and beyond. This event was generously sponsored by our long-term partner, the Nederlandse Taalunie.


The programme varied from sessions on vocabulary and learning psychology, creating learning communities online, to personal language journeys and the sense and nonsense of grammar teaching. There was also a virtual borrel with our 2020 Taalunie writer in residence Niña Weijers. And of course there was plenty of opportunity to meet colleagues and exchange ideas.

The workshop was free and were very excited to bring together the UK and Ireland’s Dutch language tutors. We often work on our own and don’t have ready access to colleagues to exchange ideas and experiences. This two-day workshop was meant for tutors to connect and inform.
