What we're about


Columbia Association's (CA's) monthly World Languages Café is a place to speak a language you know or one you are learning, converse in a friendly atmosphere, meet new people who enjoy learning about other cultures, increase your fluency by speaking and listening, pick up useful phrases to use when traveling and recall your childhood language.

World Language Café's are held once a month year-round on the fourth Tuesday of the month from 7-9 p.m. at the 50+ Center of the East Columbia Library (6600 Cradlerock Way, Columbia).

Come in and and join the language table of your choice. Language tables are hosted by a native speaker who will facilitate conversation. Languages include American Sign Language, Arabic, Chinese, Dutch, English, Farsi, French, German, Hebrew, Hindi, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish and Turkish.

For more information, to find out if there will be a native speaker of the language you are interested in practicing, to become a native speaker table host, or request that your email be added to the World Languages Café email group, please contact Laura Smit at 410-715-3162 or International@ColumbiaAssociation.org.
