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
  • And it’s FREE though donations are appreciated for special events
