How does the Language Cafe work?

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.

At in-person events we offer free coffee, tea and snacks, and bags of fun!


Volunteer with us

We’re always on the look-out for more language volunteers. Please check our volunteering page for more information.
