This committee is responsible for the quarterly magazine of our association, the TWISTER. Of course, a magazine does not write itself! The committee members write articles, create linguistic puzzles and take care of the lay-out and distribution of the magazine. If you’d like to write something for the TWISTER, you can find all the information you need in their FAQ.

TripCie (Trip Committee)

TripCie 2019-2020

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, there is no TripCie this year. 🙁

Because the VakanCie (see below) wasn’t enough already, the TripCie is responsible for organising a second, shorter trip abroad at the end of the year. In just a few days, you’ll get to know all about the destination’s culture and, of course, language!

VakanCie (Holiday Committee)

VakanCie 2019-2020

Tess Huijting, Anna Lina Litz, Merel Drop, Veronica Voevodina, Isaac Eaton

This committee is dedicated to organising an amazing holiday abroad every year. We step outside the Netherlands for an intriguing quest for culture and language. The VakanCie organise the entire trip by themselves, from the very first destination brainstorming to the accomodation, flights, and fun activities!
