Nadia Crickx | Office Assistant
Learning a language is just like travelling, broadening your view of the world. And just as Nelson Mandela so beautifully put it into words: « If you speak to someone in a language he understands, you reach his head. If you speak to someone in his own language, you reach his heart. »

I help in the performance of everyday tasks at Ruysschaert, such as the monitoring of registrations. I make sure that each registration runs smoothly from start to finish.  

If you have any questions regarding the registration of your child or about our courses or you just want to know just how all this works, then you can reach me by telephone on +32 9 281 01 53 or by email at nadia@ruysschaert.be

My areas of interest: running and travelling (and preferably at the same time)

Dirk Braet | Coordinator English Courses
I've been putting heart and soul into Ruysschaert. The management says that I'm a real teambuilder and that's exactly what I like, giving impassioned teachers that extra little push to help them grow. Every course is an adventure full of challenges, and that's what I enjoy.

My interests: good food, sailing,..


Maarten Huvaere | Coordinator English Courses
As a coordinator at Ruysschaert I put an incredible amount of energy into providing young people with close support, teaching them and witnessing their growth and I, in turn learn from that process. I'm glad to be able to be a part of  a professional organisation that stimulates people to give the best of themselves and offers them chances to blossom and to push their own boundaries. As a lover of languages I am convinced that language and literature allow us to better understand other people and to value them even more.

My interests: reading, fine conversation, good food, festivals, the sea, an excursion with friends,...


Charlotte Haeck | Coordinator English Courses
Working as a coordinator at Ruysschaert gives me fulfilment at so many different levels and continues to influence me in a positive way every time. It gives me the chance to accompany other teachers in their quest for inspired and purposeful teaching and to enthuse young people for language in all its facets. Language is my first love and to be able to share it with so many other people, with the focus on quality is what Ruysschaert means to me.

My interests: In my everyday life I'm a language teacher, event planner, flower arranger and music lover.


Annelies De Ruyck | Coordinator English and German courses
At Ruysschaert we focus not only on the language knowledge of the pupils, but we also want to help young people develop on a personal level. That's what makes our courses unique, the attention to each individual. In my role as coordinator of the English and German courses it is with great pleasure that I coach our team of teachers, accompany the pupils and ensure that the activities are managed efficiently. Through the mix of lessons and activities you can witness how much pleasure pupils get from learning a language. The smiles on the faces during the course are living proof that we're getting it right!

My interests: music, dance, running, reading, languages, good food, family and friends


Glynn Dierick | Coordinator English and Dutch Courses
“The frontiers of my language are the frontiers of my world”.  In my task as teacher and coach, I want to help push these boundaries, in a warm and open learning environment; to challenge pupils and teachers, so that something that at first seemed impossible, suddenly becomes a success. Again and again, I'm proud when a course participant is subsequently astounded by his own abilities. That's what gives me energy.

My interests: travelling, literature, history, cooking and fine food


Joachim Peeters | Coordinator Dutch Courses
Being at Ruysschaert is like coming home. The cordiality, that warm feeling, an emphasis on strong support and a focus on human values ensure that you can and may  grow both as a person and professionally. As a coordinator I link the vision of the organisation with the courses at each location. I, along with the team, make sure that every course participant feels at home and in this way dares to speak another language, dares to learn. As a didactic coach I help teachers to discover new learning methods so that they too, as teachers, can grow.

My interests: musicals, politics, city trips, family, well-being.


Randy Van Lierde | Coordinator French, German and Dutch courses
Ruysschaert for me is: witnessing a pupil with a vocabulary of oui et non or ja und nein grow into a young adult capable of using a foreign language as a fully-fledged means of communication. At Ruysschaert I'm responsible for coordinating French, German and Dutch courses. At every course I try to get young people to soak up a language by immersion in an agreeable and stimulating manner.

My interests: sport, travelling and getting to know the local language, (German and French) literature.


Maxime Holst | Coordinator French and Dutch Courses
As a language teacher, I find it important that the young people be exposed to a foreign language by total immersion when they want to learn one. At Ruysschaert, we not only offer lessons, but the extra activities and the active involvement of all the Ruysschaert staff also help the pupils and teachers to remain motivated a whole week long and to give the best of themselves.

My interests: MotoGP, photography, literature, technology, music.

Alessandra Bilani - Ruysschaert Language Academy

Alessandra Bilani | Coordinator English and Dutch Courses
 At Ruysschaert you get the chance to work for a whole week and to teach in a way that is tailored to the needs of the pupils. Due to the fact that you are always with them, even outside lesson time and at the meal table too, you quickly build up a bond with the young people. You can then feel very proud when you see their progress! It's because of these moments and the pupils' gratitude at the end of the week  that I always return to Ruysschaert with great pleasure during the holidays.

My interests: acting, singing, literature, learning languages and travelling.
