305 people went


FREE MAJOR EVENT (expect 100+ attendees)

Location: Foodcourt of the Sheppard Center (lower level).

Socializing + language exchange till 6 pm + optional dinner afterwards (depending on the interest level of members by then).

Welcome to join us anytime before 5 pm.


We will have two main areas:

Area (A): One for socializing and language exchange in a casual setting

"Free-style" language exchange from 3:30-5:30 pm. Kind of like TorontoBabel's style, but we do it in a food court, in a way that fits our group, where it's totally free without alcohols. Free spring water will be provided.

Area (B): Another follows a relatively systematic and organized procedure to facilitate effective language exchange among people originally from all over the world.

You are free to switch between these two areas and among language groups. See one of the Co-hosts for any assistance you may need.



(0) Co-hosts and volunteers will set up a table with sign-up sheets and place signs on tables for various language areas as well as selecting an area as "Area (A)".

(1) When you arrive, please sign up and

* (a) get a red sticker and write the native language (plus advanced languages) you can teach, and

* (b) (optionally) get a blue sticker and write the language(s) you like to learn in the order of preference.

(2) (Round I) Go to the area assigned by a receptionist according to your birth birthday month if it is between

* (a) January and June, go to the area for the language you like to learn, or

* (b) go to the area for the language you can teach. *

* Next time we'll reverse the order for (a) and (b).

(3) (Round II) Around 5 pm, everyone move to a different area
