Meet the board: Anne-Lise Artaud

I arrived in the Netherlands in August 2012. It was a sunny day at the train station in Rotterdam. I am French and was supposed to stay for 1 year of study and then go back home. Well, as you might have guessed it already it didn’t go as planned because I am still here!

I just fell in love with the country and its culture. There was something about the Netherlands that made me feel better than in my own country. So, after 1 year of study in Rotterdam, I decided to give it a shot and stay an extra year. I moved to Tilburg in 2013 to study at Tilburg University. I went afterwards to work catching all opportunities, so I could start my career before going back to France. It went so well that I decided to stay and later on to go to Dutch class to integrate better in my new country. There I met other internationals like me, who introduced me to the club. I am so thankful that I was given the opportunity to be part of this club. It really helped me to find my place.

I like challenges, so I went for the event team with my friend Jessica and I can say that it was worth it. Actually the full experience of travelling and establishing myself in another country was worth it.

tícMovie Night: The Good Liar Review

by Tanya Krupiy

22 Nov 2019. On Friday we went to see a movie ‘The Good Liar.’ The movie took unanticipated turns and kept the audience in suspense. I found the quality of acting very good.

We went to the Havana café for drinks afterwards. It was a very relaxed evening. I had a lot of fun hearing about cross-cultural experiences in different countries. I laughed so much that my mascara started leaking at some point.

Global Climate Strike

by Anne van Oorschot

The date chosen for a Global Climate Strike in The Netherlands was Friday, 27 September  2019 in The Hague. Since I live in Tilburg, my day started with a bike ride to the train station where I started off for The Hague. It was heartening to see I was not alone – trains to The Hague from across the country were crowded with climate strikers carrying signs. (more…)

tíc raising awareness for Make-A-Wish Nederland!

tíc has set a goal to support a different charity every year whether by fundraising, event participation or volunteer work.

This past June, tíc chose to support the charity Nacht van de Vluchteling (Night of the Refugees). A small of group of tíc members not only participated in the event by walking a 20 km route, they also raised a total €950 for the foundation!

This year, our members voted on their choice of charity from a list of worthy causes including the Ronald McDonald Huis Middenwest-Brabant (Tilburg), CARE Nederland, WorldGranny, Connect2Us and Moviera (Tilburg).

We are happy to announce that tíc will be supporting Make-A-Wish Nederland this year through combined contributions of time, goods and monetary donations from the Tilburg MeiMarkt.  We’re proud to be working with Make-A-Wish and we look forward to raising awareness for this charity.

tíc’s first Dutch Conversation Meet-up!


by Jessica de Swart

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?

President’s message – Oct 2019

I don’t know about you, but sometimes it seems life is so busy and goes so fast that if you don’t slow down, you’ll miss it!  I made a commitment to myself to take a step back and start enjoying more of the things I love doing. And one of those things is being the president of tic!  With such a busy work schedule, I found myself passing on some of the fun activities the event team has been putting together. This club season, I decided to have more fun with my fellow club members while also taking more initiative to get the club increased exposure in the community. (more…)
