Language teaching, translation & research


G.Dijkman has taught Dutch as a Second & Foreign Language since 1993. As a self-employed language consultant ZZP'er, he currently teaches at NEDLES, TOPTAAL & ROCvA, Amsterdam. He enjoys teaching communicative language skills at CEFRL levels A0-C1 and specialises in writing skills B1-C1.


Apart from English & Italian into Dutch at near-native proficiency, he's familiar with Indonesian at advanced proficiency. Being a bit of a language fan, he worked with French, Spanish & German at basic proficiency too. Subjects on education, nature conservation & the environment are favourite.


Close contacts with Indonesia have resulted in historical research on Nusa Penida-Bali, the Greater Bird-of-Paradise in Aru-Moluccas & the ancient story of Calon Arang in Bali. More to home, Dutch Golden Age painter Servaes Nouts, Latin-Roman Civilisation & Archaeology have his interest. And last but not least, he loves digging into family history ????
