Polyglot Cafe is an opportunity for people of different backgrounds to get together to exchange language and culture. We'll meet at a cafe, bar or restaurant and move break off into smaller groups to speak a variety of languages. Do you speak or want to learn\practice Mandarin? Hang out with the Mandarin speakers, and maybe you can help them with English or another language while you're at it. You can also jump from one table to another and meet a ton of interesting people from a variety of backgrounds. Our polyglot cafe is a perfect microcosm of this country's most diverse city.

Currently, we have general multilingual meetings on the first Wednesday and third Friday of every month. On top of that, there are language-specific meetings throughout the month. Each meeting is at a different location to allow for a change of pace and so that we can discover the city together. If you have ideas of where\when to meet, also feel free to let us know.

Side note: If you want to stop receiving emails about new meetings, just uncheck the option in your communication settings.

Side note 2: When you sign up for this group, you'll be asked to pay your "dues." There are not actually any dues; this is just the way meetup phrases what we call optional donations. Consider it an optional yearly donation of $2 if you want to help us keep this group running. It's not much for one person but, if enough of us pull together, then I won't have to worry about paying the meetup fees anymore (around $150/year). Donations are not at all required, but certainly appreciated :)
