Summary

Usually nicknamed Arv or Art within his inner circle, he is a self-proclaimed one of the most amiable guys in town. A kind of jack-of-all-trades with a colorful background, Arv/Art enjoys a set of varying hobbies and past time activities which range from reading good detective stories, traveling to interesting & intriguing places, to playing the game they play in Heaven every Saturday and Sunday, when he can squeeze in the time. Currently works full time as a language teacher, he cherishes the fact that he's helping out in shaping the minds of today's young people, in one way or another. With a knack of several languages, mostly European ones, he joined Polyglot Indonesia last year to meet up with like-minded people who share his enthusiasm in practicing and learning foreign languages.

 

Motivation

Arv/Art has always been interested in meeting new, interesting people with certain affinity towards foreign languages. This definitely hits home when he was introduced to local Polyglot Indonesia community through a close friend from Abang None Jakarta circle, Non Mira. What had started out to be some fun pastime activity to fill the time has since then developed into an innate passion in meeting people and practicing his language skills in Jakarta meet-ups. Current motivations include expanding the Dutch table at Polyglot Indonesia Jakarta and probably picking up another language on the go.

Biography

Having been privileged enough to spend most of his student days abroad and coupled with childhood exposure to local schools, Arv/Art has acquired a high sense of tolerance and personal choice. With an international business background in international marketing/management from the Netherlands, he had worked as an education consultant for some years upon his return to Indonesia, during which time he had found his true passion in teaching, initially English language subject and branching out to Indonesian quite recently. Equipped with a CELTA certificate from University of Cambridge ESOL program, he continued to pursue his true passion in teaching and has switched to a full time English teacher profession since the end of the first quarter of 2017. In the near future, Arv/Art is anxiously hoping to continue his study further, most likely back home in the Netherlands, until he can achieve one of his major life goals in successfully getting a Ph.D degree someday. As the former British prime minister of the late 1990s stated in his biography: "Where you end up in life shouldn't depend on where you started out!"
