About Language Cafés

The Language Cafés offer an opportunity to converse in one of many languages in a friendly, informal setting.

(Please note: The aim of the Language Café is stimulating conversation. It is not a language class and isn't really suitable for complete beginners)

Here's how it works:

  • Come to the venue
  • Buy a coffee or a glass of wine
  • Join a table with the country flag of the language you wish to speak
  • Meet new people, practise and improve your language skills
  • There is a small charge to cover room hire

"Because of you, Monday afternoon has become the most wonderful moment for me during the whole term."

"Conversation level Norwegian in 20 hours? Not a realistic goal by any stretch of the imagination. However, 20 hours is, I believe, time enough for an adsorbent mind to gather techniques, guidelines and examples. All of these have been provided in abundance by Hazel Nowell at Lancaster Languages."

"I contacted Lancaster Languages for a two week intensive English course for our Japanese Business Development Director. It was very short notice, but they arranged a very successful and beneficial course."

"Lancaster Languages enabled us to send a Pole to work offshore in Malaysia, West Africa and the Gulf of Mexico, a Peruvian to present complex metallurgy to the Texans and an Italian to run projects in this country and Singapore."

"The teacher evaluated my mistakes and started a rigorous plan in order to develop and improve my pronunciation….now I know how to recognise my mistakes and try to avoid them."

"With the great help of Lancaster Languages, I passed the IELTS test with 7.5 overall and was accepted as a graduate student at the University of Cambridge."

"I would definitely recommend Lancaster Languages for their professionalism, flexibility and friendly approach."

"The tailored course provided exceeded our expectations, particularly in the combination of language learning and cultural activities, which were perfectly suited to the work we were developing."

"When my wife and I were looking for someone to teach us Norwegian we contacted Lancaster Languages. Nine months later we are ready to move to Norway."

"I work in agriculture and Lancaster Languages organized an ideal programme including indoor classwork and field trips - farm visits and participation in an auction."

"The intensive course at Lancaster Languages allowed me to grow significantly in the mastery of professional English, thanks to the personalised programme created and adapted from the analysis and evaluation of my needs."

"I joined a British/Italian company to start up the business in Japan and the company provided a valuable opportunity for me to learn real English on a tailor-made course with ‘Lancaster Languages’."

"Lancaster Languages provides personalised lessons depending on your goals and needs. They provide me what I need to improve my English pronunciation... I am very pleased that I could achieve one of my targets for pronunciation. I greatly appreciate their support!"
