Join this free event, meet new people and practice your languages!

Join this free event, organized by Koentact Dutch Language School, to meet new people and practice your foreign languages.

And which way is better to start a conversation than about you favorite (local) food? Do bring some for yourself and to share! Don't forget a "gezellig picknickkleedje", invite your friends and let's have some fun in the park now that summer has finally arrived in Amsterdam!

Everyone is welcome. Our ALC's are joined by people through Meetup, locals and internationals, current and former Koentact students, Dutchies from the neighborhood, our teachers and their friends. All guests can practice Spanish, French, Norwegian, English, German, Russian, Dutch and many more different languages.

Normally there are around 100 people visiting our ALC's, so you will meet lots of great new people. Please RSVP here and, if possible, also join our event on Facebook, where we'll keep you posted about this August 9th ALC:

To snel! See you soon!

    Are there any native Italian speakers who would like to help me with a small web project? My company is launching a multi-ligual website and they are looking for someone that can translate some menu options, error messages, etc, into Italian. If you are interested please let me know and I will put you in touch with them.

      Sara, I beg to differ. I work in Information Security, and if only you knew what being on FB can do... The problem for me is that I work for a lot of banks and government dept's etc, and they regularly employ companies that trawl social media for anything you may have said or done, that concerns them, and this includes things that your "FB Friends" have said or done, even in jest.

      Thanks for the explanation, I actually thought you as an IT guy might have reasons like that, which I understand. But what about a fake Fb account without friends, just to access the infos & discussions?

    I went to the official BBQ spot in the centre of the park? I think it depends on what you call the centre as I asked several people and they all said that was the official BBQ spot, and there were a lot of small groups cooking???
    Hopefully better luck next time
    Fijn weekend

    In addition to Kiko the BBQ Master and Koen jumping up and down you will recognize the location by lime green tents.
    It's at the official BBQ location in the middle of the park. Coming from the entrance at the Stadhouderskade (center side) it's located behind the 'Openluchttheater' and the big fountain.
    Looking forward to see you tomorrow!

    You need to check out the eventspage on Facebook, starring our BBQ master Kiko!­ He's quite something!
    It's "bring your own" this Friday, however he will be there to help you BBQ your goodies. So what are you bringing to the party to enjoy & share? Don't forget something to sit on, mosquito spray and some nice cool drinks to celebrate the weekend!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
