Virtual Language Café

Language Café was launched in November 2019, and we are delighted that it has proven so popular amongst students and staff. We have enjoyed seeing so many familiar – and new – faces coming to our sessions each week.

We’d like to take this opportunity to thank all of our volunteers for their time and commitment, and for helping to make Language Café such a success.
