Trying Tongue Twisters? TEDxSaxion vs TEDxMünster

Posted on May 9th, by Nadi in Blog. No Comments

Due to the fact that understanding each other is crucial in intercultural encounters, a big challenge in planning our next event “TEDxSaxionUniversitySalon Crossing Borders” (in collab with  TEDxMünster) is the fact that we speak different languages. However, it can also mean a whole lot of fun when you simply dare to speak each other`s language.

On the occasion of the “Dag van de buurtaal” (“neighbouring language day”) today we decided to cross the borders of our tongues and tried to pronounce tongue twisters in each other`s languages! Of course we filmed it for you, so check out the video!

Want to try those tongue twisters as well? We wrote them down for you:

German tongue twisters:

Russische Russen rutschen russische Rutschen russisch runter.

VIP EVENT: Brave New Deventer #BeConnecTED

Posted on December 10th, by Annouk van der Lely in Blog. No Comments

Hi there! At this year’s conference Brave New World in Deventer we had our wonderful friends from TEDxMuenster visiting us and we wanted to show them, and others, the cool and unique parts of Deventer as well as giving them an extra special program. Together with some other guests (e.g. winners from past events) we created a VIP pre-event through Deventer. Did you miss it, but are you also curious about what Deventer has all to offer? Then I’ll take you through the program! Around 10.15 our first guests arrived at Deventer Schouwburg. There was some time to relax, grab a coffee and take pictures with the TEDx flag.

We asked all our guests to write a short story about themselves, for example about their interests, their work/study or a funny story. We then gave everyone a one of these stories, … Read More »

Organizing the VIP event: my experience

Posted on December 1st, by Annouk van der Lely in Blog. No Comments

It has only been a few days after the TEDxSaxionUniversity Brave New World conference, but wow! What an amazing experience, I’m pretty sure that I’m not the only one who still feels energetic and inspired because of it.

In case you haven’t seen me around yet, I will give you a small introduction of myself. I’m Annouk van der Lely and currently in my second year of Tourism Management at Saxion University of Applied Sciences. I like to see myself as a global citizen and an open-minded, curious girl.

One of the subjects I have in school is Event management (love it!) and for this module we had to pick one event out of six events that were offered and help organizing it. Oh, I couldn’t have been happier that I chose the TEDx VIP event, because it has been an extraordinary … Read More »
