9 Oct. 2019. tíc has officially started its ‘no books/no teacher/no pressure/all levels welcome’ Dutch conversation group. The idea is to discuss a pre-designated topic for the evening to guide the flow of conversation.

On our first get together, we split up into 2 groups and gave Dutch conversation our best efforts while sharing a drink and getting to know each other. The shock of the night was that the person in my group who carried much of the conversation was actually the person who has been in the Netherlands the shortest amount of time! (Shout out to Wendy, carrying on interesting conversation after only 6 weeks here!) Especially after talking with her, we were all inspired to make more effort to use Dutch and plan to have this meet up again. A special thanks to our native speaker member, Marloes, who joined the meet up and chatted with us too! Who says language learning has to be boring or stressful?
