Language Café – 24 November
Wednesday 24 November at 5:00 pm to 6:30 pm
Language Café is an informal language learning event, encouraging fun and friendly conversations. Our café is open once a week during term time. We welcome students and staff of all language levels and none.
What can you expect?
Join us at the Language Café and seize the opportunity to improve your language skills, learn about other cultures, and make new friends from around the world!
Language Café is run by volunteers who are either native or fluent speakers of many wonderful languages. Each week we introduce a new theme such as travel, festive traditions, music, and food so that every time you return you learn something new.
Every language has its own conversation group and where possible we divide groups by the language level from beginner to intermediate+. We tend to keep our conversation groups small so that everyone gets a chance to speak.
As you come in, you can help yourself to free tea, coffee and snacks. Please ask one of our Global Lounge Ambassadors to help you find the language table that you’re after.
What languages are available today?
Language Café is home to over 20 languages. The number of languages varies depending on the availability of our fantastic volunteers.
