4. Who is the founder or owner of the company and briefly describe his/her past activities?
My name is Sylvia Clements, I'm the founder of M05499. I am a mining engineer. I used to hate languages at school. I did do a lot of research about learning styles, brain, teaching methods etc. and found out that there is not just 1 method for everyone. So I learned to use many teaching methods, and I decide which one to use after an intake. I have been teaching ever after graduating from the university.
5. What is your most popular travel package and why?
Total Immersion Level 1: learn the basics of Dutch in a small group. Hard work, but feels like vacation as well, because of all the little trips & walks.
6. What is the best compliment you received from a client?
That one of my former clients who participated in the language course for a journalists exchange is now once a year my colleague for the same program because she liked it so much. I still remember that she came to me on the first day: how will I remember all those new words? A year later, she passed the highest exam.
