A premium language learning experience for all of our students

Learn how your language learning experience with the Weaver School will be different from any language school you've ever experienced before.

Hi, I'm Lucas. Welcome to The Weaver School 😊

In 2018, I started an in-person English school in the Netherlands called 'Weaver English'. But after COVID hit, and suffering through numerous lockdowns, I had to rethink everything. The result was 'the Weaver School': an entirely online language school dedicated to helping adults become fluent in new languages quickly and effectively.

How my passion for language learning helps you learn languages

Most of my adult life has involved language learning. When I was 24 I moved to Spain and started learning Spanish. Later I would move to the Netherlands and learn basic Dutch. In 2022, I moved to South Korea and studied Korean for three months. Since then I've learned bits of Japanese, Mandarin, Vietnamese, and Thai. On top of all this, I've also been teaching English for the past 8 years. Combining these two experiences has resulted in me becoming obsessed with language learning and trying to create the best language learning experience possible for language learners like you.

Teaching methods based on neuroscience

Everything you'll do in your courses is based on the latest research in neuroscience and adult learning. Language learning as an adult is more possible than most think, but it's not as easy as when you were younger. Because of this, you have to learn differently and do more as an adult. Our courses are designed to help you do this as quickly and effectively as possible.

Relevant course ontent

Each lesson in every course that you take from us will have two homework exercises and one quiz. The exercises build on eachother and make sure to reinforce the material you learn in the video lessons. This makes sure that you actually absorb the material you're studying. We make this homework easy to do and keep track of.

Maximizing speaking time

If you want to become fluent in a language, you have to get as many repititions speaking that target language as possible. Our goal in this phase is to challenge you and guide you into making prodcutive mistakes. These mistakes are what will actually lead to you learning and making improvements.

Blended learning structure

In order to make the most of your time and money, our courses use a blended learning model to make sure you get the most speaking time possible with your language tutor. You'll watch precorded video lessons for learning new material and then practice that material with your tutor in live one-to-one lessons.

Everything is included

Digital flashcard packs, quizzes, monthly exams, everything you need to learn the material each week is included. I've used all of my past experience to create a total package offering that makes your entire expierence as easy and convenient as possible.

Experienced passionate teachers

I only work with the most experienced and passionate teachers. I personally designed or co-designed every course I offer, and I personally train every teacher to make sure they are giving you the proper correction and feedback you need.
