Authors

Jenny van der Toorn-Schutte

In 1979, Jenny van der Toorn-Schutte was put on the spot as a Dutch teacher: she had to teach Dutch to a group of Vietnamese boat refugees. Fortunately, an interpreter was available for the first few weeks who could explain to her the difference between Vietnamese and Dutch: a tone language versus an inflected language. This experience led her to write Basisgrammatica. At the same time, she took part-time courses at VU University Amsterdam towards a degree in Intercultural Educational Sciences. Later on, she completed a doctorate in Applied Linguistics at Radboud University Nijmegen. 

Over the years, she has taught Dutch to many other nationalities, preferably using her own teaching material: Klare taalBeeldtaalEenvoudige basisgrammaticaOp wegOnderweg and Wegwijzer.
