What we're about

This group is for all who love to speak or learn foreign languages. There is a similar meetup group in San Diego which I was active in, which has been around since 2015 and often draws 30-40 attendees in their events, and I'm hoping to get a similar group going here.

Events will include coffee, lunch/dinner or other gatherings where we can do language exchanges or just chat about anything we like. We'll try to post suggested topics ahead of events, so that you can look up words and sentence structures ahead of time and use them during the meet-up in your target languages. But you're free to talk about anything you like, in English if you want (though the use of other languages is encouraged.)

Check out the message board for various topics such as language learning resources!
