My name is Ren and I am a native Dutch speaker currently enjoying the hospitality of Somerset in the UK. I’ve been living here for 6 years after brief stints living in Ireland and Portugal.


I am a qualified administrator and secretary/PA and speak 5 languages: Dutch, English, German, Spanish and Italian. Admittedly, I don’t speak Spanish or Italian fluently. But I can certainly hold a conversation or translate a basic text when called upon. I am constantly working on improving my language skills through apps and language travel.

I am interested in creative writing, travel, history, languages and literature and am available as a virtual assistant for a cornucopea of tasks or even for a friendly chat for those wishing to emigrate or take a language course. I’ve been there, done that and am always happy to help.

You can use the contact me form and I’ll get back to you in the blink of an eye. Unless it’s in the middle of the night. Then it might be ever so slightly longer.
