Ella has been working at Taalhuis Amsterdam as a Dutch teacher since the beginning of 2021. She studied history and is a francophile – a hobby that got out of hand and led her to study French as well. Ella loves swimming in open water, watching Nouvelle Vague films, cooking (although she will never be able to follow a recipe completely) and Dutch sayings. Her favorite Dutch sayings is ‘met de deur in huis vallen’ (’to fall with the door in the house’). That means to go straight to the point, usually unexpected.
