Virtual Language Café – 22 April
Wednesday 22 April, 2020 at 1:00 pm to 2:30 pm
Our beloved Language Café is now hosted online
This virtual event presents a great opportunity to improve your language skills, learn about other cultures, have fun conversations with others and make new friends from around the world, without leaving your room!
How to join us online
Please click your chosen language group below to join us at 13:00 (GMT).
We recommend no more than 6 people per group, including the volunteer. If your chosen group is full, please visit another one.
We will update the links to the virtual chat rooms a week before the event.
We encourage you to run a quick test 5 minutes in advance. Although any device can be used, we recommend that you choose your computer instead of your phone for a better experience.
