Who Is Taal Ja!?

Taal Ja! offers personal guidance and years of experience.

My name is Ine Valentin, trainer and promoter of Taal Ja!

After my studies of French and Dutch, and a sports career as a marathon runner (one of my many sporting hobbies), I gained work experience at various companies. Because of my husband’s work I lived a few years abroad, in countries like South Korea and Germany, where I learned to develop other talents.

In that period I also rediscovered the importance of language. I found that when living and working in a country whose language you don’t speak, it becomes much more interesting if you are exploring that language. Every day you will encounter situations in which it is a big advantage if you speak and understand the language. It expands your world and it becomes easier to make social contacts.

Back in the Netherlands I have given Dutch language lessons at a language institute for a couple of years. Thus was born the idea for Taal Ja!: Language training tailored to the needs and agendas of those who want to learn or improve their Dutch language skills, presented by a trainer who has experienced not only linguistic but also cultural differences. Experiences that you can take advantage of!

Taal Ja! provides more than just knowledge of the Dutch language. I bring years of international  experience in different areas, which helps me to have a better understanding of your situation and your needs.

Quotes from customers:
Tijdens de lessen was het gemakkelijk en gezellig praten met Ine. Binnen een paar maanden kon ik mij al goed verstaanbaar maken in het Nederlands. Ik kan haar van harte aanbevelen!” Marcela Dobyasova, the Czech Republic.

I was fortunate to have Ine teach me Dutch over four months, during which time, she taught me not only the basis of Dutch but more importantly she gave me the confidence to speak Dutch in public. Her lessons were interesting and she would always think outside the square for different teaching methods that would better suit me individually”. Carly van Doorn, New Zealand.

“In de loop van een jaar heb ik een keer per week met Ine samen gezeten om mijn Nederlandse taal te verbeteren. Voordat ik Ine ontmoette, was ik al 5 maanden in Nederland en had wat basiskennis van Nederlands, die toch onvoldoende was om andere mensen goed te kunnen begrijpen. Ine begreep precies hoeveel motivatie ik had om snel te leren en wist welke leermaterialen het best zijn. Het belangrijkst voor mij was, dat ik iemand had met wie ik elke week  anderhalf uur Nederlands kon spreken. Daardoor was ik na 6 maanden al zover dat ik moeiteloos met mijn collega’s en mensen op straat kon praten. Ik wil Ine zeker aan iedereen aanbevelen. Niet alleen is ze een top lerares, maar ook een interessante en prettige persoon met wie het altijd leuk is een gesprek te voeren!” Kärt, Estland.
