Open Day and Marché Méditerranée 17 December! - Taalhuis Amsterdam

Open Day and Marché Méditerranée 17 December!

Would you like to learn a new language? In January our new courses will start again for all languages!

Open day
We would love to welcome you at our open day on Saturday 17 December to meet our teachers, follow a trial lesson, and enrol for your next language adventure. The sessions will be held at Tweede Schinkelstraat 26 and via Zoom. For the trial lessons there’s a maximum number of seats available for each session, so please register here to secure your seat.

Marché Méditerranée 
On our open day, you can also buy products from the Greek supermarket Bakaliko, buy Italian home accessories from Amaregalo or handmade and zero waste products from Little Quiet Ideas, dolls from Atelier Bruin, handmade jewellery and pottery from Fusionne or Broche Magique and taste Maison Genevieve truffels and Italian snacks from Polpetta – Lokale Gastronomie. In our Café Méditerranée we will be serving fresh crêpes and vin chaud (glühwein) all day! And there will be a small book market where you can exchange books in all languages, and buy books/materials we don’t use anymore with discount.

The trial lessons will be followed by a round of “speak-dates” (short conversations in all the languages that you want to practice) and a borrel starting at 17:00!
