About this site

I dislike having a website that is my name. But as a translator, I needed a website to post my privacy statement and my terms and conditions – a legal requirement.

So, you know, here we are.

At the moment, I am using this site to promote the things I do in the German town where I live: Bielefeld.

You see, I spend most of my working life at my laptop writing about the English of Dutch people and English as it is spoken around the world. But I can never not be a teacher, and getting out of the house is healthy, so here in Bielefeld I teach one-on-one English lessons while walking. I’ve also started an English book club, and I read English stories to kids at the library.
