TorontoBabel: Toronto's International Language Exchange Meetup


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 usually have about 100 people so it will be busy and bustling. With so many people speaking it can sometimes be a bit loud, but this is your chance to practice your language skills in a real-world context with real people!



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 Anna and Eduardo 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 7:30pm 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 Anna or Eduardo 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!

    I really loved it. I met some people from France and they tried to teach me some day to day conversation in French. I think I have to practice what I learned for the next week hopefully.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
