The Team

Organizer: Cynric

Hello! My name is Cynric. I am happy to be part of the AvaLingua Exchange team and I will be organizing events in The Hague. After attending a few of the AvaLingua Exchange meetings, I became part of the team and hosted the first AvaLingua Exchange @ HOME meeting during the corona time.

My passions include dancing and learning new languages. Being born in Curaçao I grew up speaking 4 languages (Papiamentu, Dutch, English and Spanish). And up till today I still like to learn new languages. At the moment I am practicing my Russian and German. I enjoy being able to communicate with people in their own language as I believe that this allows them to express themselves best.

I like that with AvaLingua Exchange we are able to bring people from different cultures together - people who are eager to learn, practice and help one another. This way we can get to know each other and share our passion for languages.

Organizer/Founder: Avalon

Hi everyone! I’m Avalon, a Dutchie who has been living in many different countries, who loves to discover new cultures and different ways of thinking. I’m a cultural anthropologist and teach Dutch to foreigners. I grew up close to the sea, which is one of my favorite places to be!

In 2014, I organized the first AvaLingua Exchange Meeting (called Language Exchange Nijmegen) in Nijmegen, only because I wanted to meet Spanish speakers. It turned out that a lot of people showed up at that first meeting and because I enjoy organizing and connecting people, I decided to make it a weekly event. During the last years it was not only me who organized the meetings, but many people helped me during the time I was abroad or at the other side of the country: Emilie, Jana, Suzanne, Janice, Robert, Manu, Kiki, Sophia, Antoine, Marleen, Fiona and Özlem, thank you! Right now, Thijs and Henrique organize the meetings in Nijmegen, Emma and Alankrita in Rotterdam and Cynric in The Hague. Every now and then, I join the meetings and help with the organization. I support the team and together we create the AvaLingua Exchange community!

It’s always an honor for me to organize the meetings. Every meeting I have the chance to meet wonderful people from different countries. I see a lot of happy faces and all the time new friendships are made and we speak a lot of languages. LANGUAGES, FRIENDS & CULTURES. Connecting these that's what it's all about and my main objective in life.
