It has been so cold last weekend! It was the first time in the whole year we saw snow in the Netherlands.  Volendam & Zaanse Schans looked like a Winter Wonderland. And Happy Valentine's Day! Yesterday we visited an elderly home with a group of 15 students to celebrate Valentine's Day with the residents. It was a lovely afternoon with a lot of fun! Please add our Board account on Facebook to stay updated about all our other events!

Dutch Movie Night: Alles is Familie
Date: 20-02-2017
Time: 20.00 - 22.30
Price: FREE
Location:
CREA Theatre


In the FREE Dutch Movie Night ISN gives you an insight in the Dutch (film) culture. We show you movies that were made in The Netherlands, and that most of the Dutchies will know for sure.
No worries… the movie will be shown with English subtitles, so you can actually understand what is being said. ;)

The first movie of this semester we are going to show you is Alles is Familie (Family Way). The movie is a romantic comedy about (guess what)...family!
All the members of the De Roover family have ended up at a point of no return in their lives where crucial choices have to be made. Winnie - you might recognize the actrice from Games of Thrones - wants a child. Her husband Rutmer wants to get in touch with his feelings. His brother Charlie doesn't want any responsibilities. Their brother-in-law Dick wants his deceased wife back. Head of the family Arend wants to be happy. Mother Jeannette wants somebody to want her.

The event is free for ISN Amsterdam members and for students at the HvA and UvA. You can just come in and show your ESN/student card, so bring all your friends for a fun night out. NO reservation is needed, hope to see you there! :)

NEWS

The Buddy of the semester competition!

Are you part of the buddy program? This semester the most active Buddy group will receive a prize (which is dinner for all or tickets to the cinema)! So make sure you post a picture in the Buddy Facebook group when you're hanging out together or attending a buddy activity and who knows you'll be eating sushi or watching an exciting movie at the end of the semester! 

Dutch (delicious) food!
So you've been in Amsterdam for a few weeks now, did you try any of the typical Dutch food, next to the stroopwafels? Did you already eat kaassoufflé, frikandel, broodje kroket, patatje oorlog, drop or poffertjes? Or the (for foreigners) less-known stamppot, hete bliksem, ontbijtkoek or rijstebrij? Probably not. Shame on you! Well, you'll have plenty of time the next few months to try all these delicious Dutch dishes! Check out this buzz-feed list for some specific places in Amsterdam to try some good food! (The list also contains some 'normal' food recommendations, if you don't like the typical Dutch taste).
