About the Event
You’ve been in the Netherlands for a while, but you still get nervous when you’re about to order a coffee in Dutch. Or you try to speak Dutch to people on the street, but they revert back to English as soon as they hear your accent. You understand spoken Dutch reasonably well, but in a group conversation you get lost. Do you recognise any of this?
Learning a new language is hard. Using a new language is even harder, especially with those annoying Dutchies who keep using the opportunity to show off their English. Starting out you will inevitably make mistakes, and that is just no fun...right?
In improv, we love making mistakes. Improv is all about learning to fail and be happy, having permission to be silly, to laugh at yourself. It is the perfect tool to get more comfortable with the Dutch language.
Improv Your Dutch is not about studying proverbs or learning the irregular verbs by heart, but about connecting, making yourself understood and just trying it out.
