Hot Topic: How to Raise Multilingual Children

Tilburg International Club Multilingual Children Webinar18 March 2021. by Anne-Lise Artaud. We had a very lovely evening around a hot topic for us expat. How to raise multilingual children? This subject was presented and all our questions answered by an experienced researcher that has herself personal experience on this matter. It was very interesting to learn about the flexibility and resilience of children that from a young age are able to learn and retain different languages.

Language forms part of our identity

The Netherlands is a country that welcomes a large number of immigrants and expats, making it a very culturally rich and diverse nation. A part of this cultural diversity is the great variety of languages spoken both inside and outside the home. And, language forms an important part of who we are.

#TBT Paradox borrel

Tomorrow we’ll be online again for another fun borrel/game night. For #ThrowbackThursday, here’s a look back at one of our borrels from 2014 at the Paradox! (Hopefully we’ll get back to hosting in-person barrels again soon!)

x—x—x—x—x—x

by Patricia Gonzalez. Confession time. I’ve lived in Tilburg for two years now, practically in the neighborhood of Paradox, and I profess to be a lover of all things jazz. Yet I had never been there until the night of TIC’s borrel. It wasn’t because I had never heard of the place. Paradox is a popular jazz venue among Tilburg residents and the non-profit foundation has been around for almost 30 years. Still, I had never gone. (more…)

“Beerophiles” gather… hilarity ensues

Tilburg International Club Beer Tasting 5 March 2021. by Essi Koskela. Unlike the several devoted beerophiles attending the tic beer tasting event, I was hesitant at first. My preference has settled in the plain pilsje and lager after years of empirical research, and I was not sure I was ready to challenge this concept.

The Experience

Unfooled by my prejudice, I set out to experience the selection of four local craft beers: a hazy landbier (Beerze Classic),  IPA, a subtle triple (School Strafwerk), and a thick, rich porter (Engelbertus Zachte Heelmeester). Joining us online was our beer master, Hans from HetBierMoment. Thanks to tic, 4 beers + a beer glass were delivered straight to each participant’s door.  That’s tic service at its best! (more…)

Anita has something to say about Morning Mug

Tilburg International Club coffee morningAnita says…

If human ingenuity has no limits, that of the tíc Events Team manages to exceed even that. In the midst of a pandemic, which qualifies pre-eminently as force majeure, no one would have blamed the team if they had shelved their efforts and waited for more propitious times. But no, on they soldiered, even when their numbers were reduced owing to a crop of adorable babies. Mazeltov!

Expanding our virtual world

Indomitable, they grabbed the virtual world by the horns and ran with it.  Virtual parties with Netflix and boardgames, then with goodies delivered to the door, same with a virtual beer tasting session, and the Book Club zoomed on regardless and for those starved of human company the Morning Mug was born.

Meet our New Partner – STE Languages

We are pleased to announce our new partnership with STE Languages!
Together we look forward to expanding resources for expats in Brabant.

Tilburg International Club partner
WHO ARE STE LANGUAGES?

STE Languages is a vibrant, intercultural hub where different cultures meet. Internationals come here to strengthen their language skills, which ultimately results in better performance, improved command of the language and feeling more at home in The Netherlands.

Tilburg International Club partner

Our students work towards a goal to improve their language skills, with particular attention given to daily practice. As a result, a foreign language can start to feel familiar and that can have a lasting impact. Our students come from all over the world and that makes for interesting conversations and gatherings. That cultural diversity brings along with it a wise message: language enriches, connects and gives colour to life.

We offer face-to-face and online classroom courses, integration & language exam preparation, qualified and passionate trainers, tailor-made solutions and much more.  LEARN MORE.

#TBT: Trip to La Trappe Brewery

Tomorrow, we will be doing an at-home beer tasting workshop presented by Hetbiermoment. For #ThrowbackThursday, let’s take a look at our tour from 2018 to Koningshoeven monastery to visit the Trappist Brewery, famous for La Trappe beer!

Tilburg International Club La Trappe tour 2018x–x–x–x–x–x–x

22 September 2018. by Elaine Ferguson. A group of enthusiastic beer tasters assembled outside the La Trappe Monastery in Berkel Enschot. Coincidently, the majority of our group consisted of Australians although some were from Sydney.

Antonio our guide met us at the gates and we preceded to the brew room where he explained the process (see link below), but the most important part for us to remember was the 2nd fermentation!! As once the beer is bottled, it continues to ferment. So, the longer you store it, the better the taste. (more…)

Unfortunately, none of us escaped – Eaten by Sharks!

Tilburg International Club Escape Room5 Feb 2020. by Essi Koskela. Enabled by Confundrum Escape Rooms based in Canada, 14 eager tíc members gathered behind their computer screens for a virtual escape room experience.

Prisoners Hatch a Plan

Participants were divided into two rooms, after being captured by the evil pirate Blackbeard and thrown behind bars on his ship. As the clock started ticking, we set out to explore the 3D virtual room for clues and useful items to try and escape. (more…)

Finance Series: Dutch Income Webinar review

Tilburg International Club Dutch Taxes28 Jan 2021. by Val Fraser. In times of lockdown and loads of negative news, getting a notification about Dutch Taxes would usually be the straw that broke the camel’s back!  But this was not how I felt when I was advised that tíc was arranging a workshop on dutch taxes.  In fact, the worst thing about taxes, would be paying too much or getting fined!

Our Presenter

Tim Dircken, fellow tíc member and financial advisor from Dircken and Partners Financial Services, kindly took us through the Dutch tax regulations and obligations, answering all our intelligent (or not) questions with patience and simplicity.

This webinar was the first of a series of finance-related series focused on Dutch income tax, subsidies and specific arrangements for expats. (more…)
