All Languages Party: Potluck Food Edition!

Café Belcampo

Dear Language Lovers, What could possibly be a better way to spend your Friday evening than meeting nice people, practising your favourite languages, and sharing some tasty international food? We present the Amsterdam Language Cafe - Potluck Edition, where you can practise ALL languages, bring your own favourite dish from your home country, and taste the specialities of other people's countries. The concept of the Amsterdam Language Cafe is simple: all nationalities are welcome and you can practise all the languages you would like to. Enter the Hallen on the entrance of the Tollensstraat (Bilderdijkkade) and it is immediately on your right. You will get a sticker with your name on it, you fill it in with the languages you speak and the languages you want to practise, and your language learning experience can begin. The night will be finished at around 10:30pm. Doors are open all evening, from 7:00pm onwards. This time we have a special theme: Potluck. You can bring your own meal if you want to (between 7:00 and 8:00pm) and you can share it with others. At 8:00pm we open the buffet. Of course, it would be great if you could make something typical of your country. If you could post it in this group what you are planning to bring (starter, main dish, or dessert), then we can check if the balance among the dishes is OK. Please note that you cannot bring your own beverages since we host the night in a Cafe that sells drinks. Furthermore, we do not have an oven, so if you want it warm, then please bring it warm. We will also ask for an entrance fee of €4 for the organisation of the event and to support our ALC Children in Slotermeer who need supplementary Dutch and English lessons in order to succeed in their studies. Please bring some coins with you for the entrance fee. For the drinks you can pay in cash or use the PIN of the Cafe. A final extra of this night is that Dutch Language School Koentact (www.koentact.nl) is going to raffle a free Dutch Language Course (value: 430 euro) and every visitor has a chance to win it. See you guys soon! Tot snel! Hasta pronto! A bientot! Koen, Zyad, Orsi, all the volunteers, and the Belcampo team "Learning a new language is the best excuse to meet new people!" • What to bring Your language skills and 4 euro cash

Koentact Open Evening: Free Dutch Trial Lesson & Level Assessments

Dear (Dutch!) Language Lovers, Please note: this event is not the usual Amsterdam Language Cafe (ALC)-Meetup, but we think it could still be a very nice event for those who want to learn (or improve their) Dutch. Especially since the ALC was initiated by this school 6 years ago. So it will have the same social & positive spirit! What is Koentact? Koentact is a Dutch language school located in the Jordaan area of Amsterdam, close to the 9 streets. Koentact offers Dutch classes for beginner, intermediate and advanced levels through a unique out-of-the-classroom method (called 'Field Trips'). Every 6 weeks there are new lessons starting and before the start of a new session, Koentact hosts an Open Evening. The first upcoming event will take place on Tuesday June 25. How does the Open Evening work? During the Open Evening you can get to know the teaching team, have a chance to win a free course and learn about the teaching method. If you are a complete beginner in the Dutch language, you can follow a Free trial lesson. The doors are open from 18.45 till 21.00 o'clock and we start at 19 o'clock sharp, so make sure you are on time. If you are an intermediate or advanced speaker of Dutch, you can come after 19:15 o'clock and do a proficiency test. Also make sure to register here for our Open Evening: https://goo.gl/vX1MaZ. Of course, you will also be able to officially enroll in one of the Dutch language courses of Koentact during the Open Day and... you can win a free course (with a value of 440 euro). There are evening classes, day classes and intensive weeks. For more information about Koentact's classes, please have a look at the following website: https://goo.gl/NdxOEZ.
