SF Babel: San Francisco's International Language Exchange Meetup

  • Jun 11, 2013 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members


We try to provide a fun, friendly, relaxed group where you can practice speaking a new language and meet people from all over the world!

Our gathering takes place in a bar environment, so there is usually music playing and we hope to have a lot of people so it will be busy and bustling. This is obviously still a fairly new meet up, so invite lots of friends and just come hang out and practice another language!


The idea of the group is that you give help to the group (helping those who are learning your native language) and you get help from the group (you are helped by others who speak the language you want to practice). This way everyone benefits!

We typically have native speakers of French, Spanish, English, Portuguese, Korean, Japanese, German, Polish, Italian, Dutch, Turkish, Mandarin, Russian, Armenian, Arabic and many other languages.

When you arrive, just introduce yourself to Marcus and Matt and they will introduce you to others who speak the language you want to practice to get you started. It's fun and FREE!



We get started at 6:30 pm and the group is usually there until at least 11pm, but you can arrive and leave at whatever time you like.


If you have any comments, questions, problems, concerns or ideas, just talk to Marcus or Matt about it. We will do our best to make sure you have a positive experience!

Remember, this group is a hobby for us; we run it just for fun, we love it and we hope you will love it too!

      Hi Matt, I am also interested in practicing my english as I am italian. But I guess finding someone who speaks english won't be a problem!

    • Matt W.

      You got it! I'd love to talk to you in English and help you with any problems/questions you have. Marcus, I'm sure would too. There will be a few other native English speakers as well. Definitely not a problem!
