Maud Beersmans graduated in the field of sociolinguistics and language education in 1992. Following her studies, she started working as a language trainer of Dutch as a second language. She is very enthusiastic about the courses she gives at all levels to foreigners with a higher level of education at Babel Languages. These courses include both group and individual tailor-made courses. Maud believes it is important that students work actively with the language, learn how they can independently develop their language skills as well as learning from and with each other. She enjoys the interaction between the students amongst each other and between the students and the trainer. On the back of her business card she quotes: “For the things we have to learn before we can do them, we learn by doing them.” Aristotle
In addition to giving training courses, Maud is the Education Manager and responsible for the planning and quality of the courses given at Babel Languages.
