Erik Pleijte Lou

Founder and Teacher

My name is Erik Pleijte Lou and I founded Ilucu to become a fully independent language teacher. I am a native speaker of English and Dutch with considerable experience in teaching languages, as well as in translating and interpreting.

Other than a master's degree in Political Science from Leiden University, I also hold the Cambridge Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults (CELTA) and a French language certificate from the CLC Language Institute in Montréal, Canada.

Professionally, I began teaching English to adults in 2007 and further developed my teaching skills in the years that followed by branching out into teaching Dutch and French.

Also in linguistics, I have over 10 years of experience in translating and interpreting between English, Dutch and French having worked for - among others - the Embassy of Belgium in The Hague and such renowned translation agencies as TransPerfect.

Over the years, I've specialized in adapting my teaching methods to suit the needs of my students. I believe anyone can learn any language, so long as the teacher can engage the student and make the language relevant and fun!
