This is what participants say:
Albert, thank you for giving me permission to make mistakes in Dutch. I am more rustig en ontspannend with my willingness to speak Dutch to Dutch people who speak perfect English. Your de-coding of the language gave me the keys to the Kingdom so to speak, since you let me in on the secrets (geheim) that no Dutc person ever shared with me. If I lived in Holland permanently, I would make you my talencoach in het Nederlands. Dank u wel! Ik ben blij!

After 20 years of traveling in the Netherlands, six years of living here, and 3 attempts at learning Dutch, I was unsuccessful at having Dutch come out of my mouth. After two weeks of inensive Dutch with you, Albert, sentences are now beginning to formulate. I have experienced a serious 'doorbraak' for which I am extremely gratefrul. You brought me back the fun and enhanced my life in Holland

I found this course to be very well designed and executed. The way in which Albert teaches the course keeps you interested and on your toes and is a fun way to learn. After doing a few Dutch courses before and learning nothing I found I learnt a huge amount during this course and it is a great springboard into the Dutch language
I have a good foundation of Dutch grammar and vocabulary, but fail to use what I know because traditional learning methods didn't bring me to a comfort level about my abilities to learn Dutch. I like the psychology of this class- the use of humor, the 'reality' - rather than rote exercises, + be kind to yourself mentality. I like the word explosion eye-openers and realizations that learning is fun.
A very fun and effective method of learning Dutch grammar and predicting Dutch vocabulary. As grammar is the hardest, most boring and most essential part of a language, it is important that it is learned effectively
A transforming experience - it opened more communication options with family, neighbors, friends ... and strangers. It is really the foundation for my integration into Dutch society and culture. It creates for me more possibilities than when I first alked in the door a week ago. But I must continue to stretch my use of Dutch daily in order to echieve a more expansive useful understanding of the Dutch language. This was but a start.... Expect to work with me much more in the dcoming days, weeks, years!
A fun, intuitive course that fit my learning style perfectly. I now have a much better understanding of Dutch (and even English) ande have gained the confidence to speak Dutch in any situation. Albert was extremely knowledgable on every facet of language learning and helps to keep the learning of Dutch interesting
A fantastic course for a few reasons:
1) It focuses on logic and visualization, which helps in learning to learn.
2) The course works in steps which are easy to take
3) The instructor Albert is excellent and a very nice person to interact with
I would highly recommend this course. It was not intimidating (as I would have expected) and made the whole learning process enjoyable.

A great 7 days, intense and full-on but with practice and confidence much improved Dutch is guaranteed! Albert is a great teacher and will recommend to others
This was a very positive experience. There was no way i would have been able to learn as much as i did without Albert's motivation, insights and approach to Dutch teaching. Albert took the class serious, he was professioanl and genuinly concerned about helping us to get better. As I continue my Dutch experience, I would certainly look to Albert to solidify my ailities in the future. Thank you!
Excellent 7 days. the Kaizen approach was reinforced and I saw my Dutch improve step by step
Albert's Dutch BrainWash Course is an entirely different approach to learning a language than I have experienced before. Rather than memorizing lists of words and rules of grammar, the approach is much more interactive and builds on previous knowledge of languages. During the course I learned almost as much about my own languge as i did about Dutch. Albert addressed many - if all - of the obstacles that have prevented me from learning Dutch in the past
Great course! I had a fantastic week! Learned new words, grammar in a structural manner. I met many interesting people. Had a lot of fun! Opened the door to learn Dutch in a different way. Gave the the confidence that I will / am able to speak Dutch

I have tried many courses in the past but have not learned a usable system. Albert taught me a system I can now use to improve my Dutch. thge system is not difficult or frustrating like many other language experiences. I now feel confident that I will speak Dutch better every day
