Learn to Speak ‘Amsterdam’ Workshop
Learn Dutch 'the Mokum (Amsterdam) way' and you will feel like a real local! This workshop lets you enjoy the pronunciation, sounds, words and expressions.
The ones you really ought to know if you want to speak this old Amsterdam' language!
The genuine 'Mokum' language is mainly based on old Jewish (Yiddish) dialects and Bargoens (the language of the underworld). We have found someone in a backstreet on the sixth floor in the centre of the Jordaan area, a person who can speak virtually only Mokum and expects everybody to do the same.
Meet 'Tante Sjaan', she will tell you all there is to know about this weird language.
While you enjoy a 'pikketanissie' (a shot of Dutch Gin), you can practice all you have learned. Finally, you will all together sing a real tearjerker and play a part in a short streetscene, just to exercise the right jokes in your recently aquired language.
