What's a kletskop?

Kletskoppen 2018 was a great success!

On Saturday 27 October 2018 the second edition of Kletskoppen was held, a fun science day about (child) language, for the whole family. And what a beautiful day it was!
Language researchers from the Radboud University and the Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics showed in a playful way how language works. Visitors were welcomed to participate in interactive demonstrations, surprising children’s lectures and crash courses in foreign languages. There were multilingual book readings, crafting with words and much more…
See below for an overview of the programme. And don't forget to take a look at the pictures and the aftermovie.
A report on the day appeared in de Gelderlander and on Kennislink (both in Dutch).

We are already looking forward to the next edition. Will you be there as well?

Kletskoppen 2017

What a wonderful day of language fun was Kletskoppen!

You could teach a parrot to talk, invent a new word at the Word Factory, learn sign language and loads more at Kletskoppen, the first child language festival in the Netherlands, which attracted more than 800 visitors, at least 300 of whom were children. It was a day for young and old, about child language and how children learn their first language (or languages), and a day about language for children.


Wat a beautiful, busy and succesful day it was! See below (or click here) for a photo report of the festival by Valerie van Hazendonk and Laura Luca (Jabber)

Short movies

In the period preceding the festival, we shared some sneak peek videos of the demonstrations that you could see at the festival. And we made an aftermovie. See below! (in Dutch).
