An Evening of True Stories II

December 6, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm


We’re back for another evening of real stories before the holidays. Let’s get together to share (and listen to) true stories in the most useful, honest, supportive, inspiring and transformational way.

Anyone who wants to share their story can do so for 5 – 7min and tell true tales about life, experiences, passion, goals, taboos, cultures, romance, adversity – you name it. We believe every true story is an opportunity to learn something about others, ourselves and has the potential to make a difference to our understanding of the world around us.

Our goal is to meet monthly in a prejudice and judgment free environment to share true stories that make us think, laugh, cry, hope, wonder, learn and care. Nobody is forced to tell a story, so feel free to come and just listen to others’ true stories.
Sounds interesting? Come join our 2nd session. Bring friends if you want but above all, bring ears to listen, a mouth to tell and a heart to feel.

Admission: Free (but your kind donation will help pay the rent and for refreshments)


Q: What type of stories can I tell?
A: We want people to share real life stories about their lives – experiences trying new things, taking on challenges, stepping out from their comfort zone, hilarious faux pas, travel adventures and misadventures … as long as it is their own real story. This is NOT an event for debates, political speeches and religious sermons. We also do not tolerate offensive, hateful and objectifying talks.

Q: Does my story have to be in English?
A: Yes, because we want to hear stories from all over the world.

Q: Can I come and just listen to others’ stories?
A: Yes, definitely.

Q: What do I need to do if I want to share my story?
A: You can send a brief email to together with a short description of your story or you can also just come on that evening and tell the host you would like to share your story.

Q: Can I tell my stories in the form of a poem/song?
A: Yes! As long as you don’t read it from a paper.

Q: I have no experience in storytelling/public speaking at all. What if people hate my story?
A: You don’t need to be a master storyteller. All skill levels are welcomed.

Q: My English is not good. What if people don’t understand me?
A: If you need help with your story, feel free to email

Q: My story is not funny or interesting enough for people to listen to!
A: Our event is friendly, open, intimate and honest. This is not a stand up comedy night where you are expected to entertain the audience. Relax, take a deep breath and enjoy the empowering feeling of having a flatform to share your stories with an emphathetic and supportive audience.

I like Hon’s lessons because they are not boring. We usually practise by playing the games. It makes us to be active.

I did not expect some evident improvement in my English, as I use it on daily basis some years already. Today I see my pronunciation is really getting better.

I appreciate teacher’s approach in a seeking the most optimal approach and form that new knowledge is provided by.

I value teacher’s individual approach to the needs of the group

For a time of about a year, my English has visibly improved and my self-confidence has gone higher in situations when I have to speak English.
