As you can imagine, she was certainly not speaking slowly for the benefit of foreigners! She pointed out the tables, shown in the photo above, and said that the girls will stay in the same place they are assigned and each time the bell rings, the guys will move up a table.You can tick off “Ja” or “Nee” for if you'd like to see that person again. and stood there wondering what-the-hell I was I doing, when I decided to simply approach a group of guys and girls waiting for us to start and said hi!I actually had little interest in finding the girl of my dreams (I'm leaving in 3 weeks! Doing it in a language I'm not yet fully comfortable in just made it all the more interesting 🙂 I find it incredible when people tell me that they have “nothing to talk about” when they find an opportunity to practice a language, and suggest that all you can do is discuss .So, I'll actually tell you exactly what I remember talking about last night.
Someone trying to get a date would have found it to be a bust, but I found it to be excellent travel vocabulary practice!I sat down to my assigned table, said that my name was Benny and she said she couldn't see me on her sheet. Being confused about my own name was hardly the best start 😛 I'd make this mistake several times in a row actually!In later mini-dates, I just started mid-conversation and skipped the boring “Hello, my name is Brendan” intro.I just wanted to get some Dutch practice because they had been notoriously hard to hang out with as friends!You generally don't meet someone up for coffee or lunch; you have to propose a time long in advance and understand the Dutch need to be organised; something which contrasts with my preference for spontaneity.
