During my time at UC Berkeley I took three Dutch courses with Professor Jeroen Dewulf and Esmée van der Hoeven. Dutch 171AC: From New Amsterdam to New York was my favorite class of Fall 2017. Professor Dewulf truly cares for his students and made the curriculum fun and enticing to learn about. Starting out with this course I became encapsulated in Dutch history and wanted to further my education in this subject. In Spring 2018 I took Dutch 1 and Dutch 100 both with Esmée van der Hoeven. I am incredibly happy that I finished my last semester of college with Esmée because she is great at teaching the Dutch language! I looked forward to attending her classes every day! Both Jeroen and Esmée are wonderful professors that I felt I could ask for help at any moment, and can confidently say they expanded my knowledge beyond measure this school year!
