Meet the newest members of Easy Languages

Easy Languages is not just an agency that organises language programmes abroad, we are a team of young people from all over the world: Spain, France, Belgium, Britain, Germany, Japan, Poland, America and Brazil. 

For most of the new interns this is their first experience in the working world, but not with languages or travel, as with most of the Easy Languages team who have travelled to various destinations around the world. 

Here are the newest additions to our international team!


Kim Schutter


What do/did you study?
I currently study International tourism management at NHTV in Breda (The Netherlands). I hope to start with the minor Aviation in September.  

What is your role at Easy Languages?
I am an intern on the Dutch market. My main tasks are customer care and translation. I will also be researching the trends and development within the 'Language travel market'.

Where are you from?
I am from Amhem, a city in the middle east of The Netherlands. I moved to Breda (in the south) 3 years ago for my studies. 

Why did you choose Easy Languages?
I chose Easy Languages due to the young and international approach. After combining an internship with improving my English when I was 19, I would now like to motivate other students to do the same. 

Which Languages do you speak?
I speak English and Dutch. I also speak a little bit of Chinese and Swedish.

Which other language(s) would you like to learn and why?
In the short term I would like to improve my French skills while I am in Brussels. During my 4th year of studies I hope to continue with my Chinese, especially reading and writing which makes the language challenging but interesting. 

What would be your perfect holiday?
My perfect holiday would combine an interesting culture and local cuisine with meeting new people. I would like to visit Russia, Iceland and Japan

What has been your best experience abroad?
Due to my tourism studies I have been able to travel and live in countries such as the U.S.A., Brazil, Sweden and now Brussels. In Orlando, Florida I shared an apartment with 5 girls from France, South- Korea, China, Jamaica and Venezuela. Experiencing these completely different cultures means that living abroad never boring!


Rob Emons


What do/did you study?
I study international business and languages at the HAN university of applied sciences. 

What is your role at Easy Languages?
I work as an intern for the Dutch market


Where are you from?
I was born and raised in a small town called Beers, it is in the south of the Netherlands. The nearest city is Nijmegen

Why did you choose Easy Languages?
My university was already familiar with Easy Languages and they told me that they had good experiences with the company. That was very important to me, but also the services that Easy Languages offer really appealed to me, because the company is active in a international environment. The international background of the company fits with my interests and education and I'm confident that I will gain a lot of new skills during my stay at the company.

Which languages do you speak?
I speak Dutch, English and a bit of German and French

Which language(s) would you like to learn and why?
I would like to learn Italian. I have always been interested in this country, the food, culture, landscape, football and of course the language. It's always a good idea to learn another language but I would like to improve my French and German first. 

What would be your perfect holiday?
That's a hard question to answer, I like lots of different types of holidays and destinations. 
But I wouldn't want to spend my holiday on the beach. I would like to visit museums, the countryside, different cities etc., but sometimes it is nice to relax on the beach or at the pool. 

Some vital things I would like to have during my holiday are; 

1. A beautiful landscape
2. Good food
3. Beautiful weather 
4. A peaceful environment (not too many tourists)  

What has been your best experience abroad?
This is my first experience abroad within the scope of my education. It is hard to say which was my best experience abroad, because I have had a lot of good experiences abroad. 

But my best holiday for the landscape was probably the trip on a night train to the PyreneesI ate the best food in MallorcaSea fishing in Norway was the best activity I have ever done on a holiday. Visiting my grandpa at the Île de Noirmoutier were definitely the most peaceful holiday.

Neufchâteau, France

French, English, Spanish and a little bit of Italian

Which other language(s) would you like to learn?
Dutch so that I can understand my Flemish friends when they speak in Dutch and so that I can practise with them :)

What would be your perfect holiday?
I would love to go to Chile, to discover the whole country and Easter Island

When I went travelling around Spain with my brother. We went to Zaragoza, Barcelona, Tarragona and Valencia – amazing cities!

Morjane Tahri


What do/did you study?
I am in my second year of "communication management".

What is your role at Easy Languages?
I am an intern for the Dutch market. I work on social media, attend fairs, contact schools, write for the blog and translate.

Where are you from?
I was born and raised in Belgium.


Why did you choose Easy Languages?
I've always wanted to study abroad and visit as many countries as possible. I applied to work at Easy Languages because it organizes those kinds of trips, and I wanted to see how it really works, and learn more about different possibilities at the same time.

Which languages do you speak?
French, Dutch, English and a little bit of Arabic. 

Which other language(s) would you like to learn and why?
Mandarin. Mandarin is getting more and more important, and is spoken by so many people.  It has a special, different alphabet, … and its difficult so I guess it is a big challenge. So I would like to learn it for different reasons, but I think it would be awesome to speak Mandarin!

What would be your perfect holiday?
Does a round the world trip count as a holiday? I think it depends on my mood, sometimes I just want the beach, sand, sea, sun and a refreshing drink, other times I want to take my backpack and explore new cities. 

What has been your best experience abroad?
I haven't travelled that much...yet! Although I will always remember the time I spent in a summer university in Morocco. I was able to see all the different cities in Morocco but the best was meeting new people. I had an incredible 2 weeks, in an amazing country with amazing people.

  1. German is the language that is spoken by almost 2 billion peoples around the world. Learning this language would give one self confidence to look the world in a different perspective. You have made me to realize that in a moment on reading this article. Thanks for sharing this in here. By the way you are running a great blog.
