't Boekske

Your self-paced monthly programme

  • Did you start learning Flemish, but have you (kind of) given up?

  • Heb je veel geleerd, en begrijp je ook veel, maar spreek je veel te weinig?

  • Does the thought of going back to avondschool or do more grammar exercises make you nauseous?

  • Maybe you feel like you lost the connection to this language?

  • But, do you have to admit, are you being hard on yourself? Are you beating yourself up a little bit (or a lot)?

You might feel ashamed each time the conversation goes back to English. 
And you wonder how, at this point, you are going to get back into it.
.

What about another way?

I’ve helped plenty of learners to speak Flemish without making them study boring things. And it still worked. Why?

When learning a language, we easily forget certain things:

  • study or passive input of the language is just one part of the formula, joy and relevance are equally, if not more important parts in succeeding
  • no one is motivated when they’re studying with material that they’re not interested in, or that doesn’t inspire, making it feel like school again
  • negative thoughts and shame can really block you, and no amount of revising or traditional language classes can solve that – it’s a deeper process.
This membership is designed especially for you,
if you want to treat yourself kindly,
express yourself in Flemish through reading & listening
to inspiring topics, introspective writing.
And a connection with a likeminded community:
all people like you, who don't shout to be heard,
but still have a beautiful voice to be freed.

    What's inside?

    35 pages full of inspiration and authentic Flemish content, designed to help you connect to the language ánd yourself.

    I will use my voice to guide you through a calming exercise to set the tone for this moment of me-time.

    Through carefully selected questions you’ll reflect and write your thoughts & feelings in Flemish. This will help you develop both your language skills and inner voice.

    On each theme, I have interviewed some Flemish women and asked them to reflect on the subject. You’ll listen to a normal speaking pace and can read the accompanying transcripts. On top of that, I’ve prepared an article (with audio) to go even deeper.

    About me

    I’m Sietske and I’m an adventurer, language lover and introvert.

    My journal is my everything! 

    I started designing language resources for introverts when I recognised that our inner life often offers much more inspiration than awkward or forced conversations. I personally love the conversations that I have with myself and can learn most from my own inner voice.
