Although you’re proud of your Duolingo streak or the Dutch conversations you have in your head, you still order your coffee in English. You want to practice the new words you’ve learned, but people revert to English as soon as they hear your accent. Even though you understand quite some words, to start a conversation in Dutch seems to much of a hurdle.
Learning a new language is hard. Starting out you will inevitably make mistakes, and that is just no fun… right?
In improvisation, we love making mistakes. Improv is all about having fun in failing, 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 perfect grammar or spelling, but about playing, laughing and just trying it out. We’ll do games and scenes from improvised theatre—in Dutch—that are perfectly designed to get you out of your head and into your creative self. You’ll be speaking without even thinking about it!
You don’t need any experience with (improvised) theatre. All levels of Dutch are welcome.
