What we're about

A group where polyglots, and language lovers can meet together, discuss language learning and improve our language skills together. You don't need to be a 'polyglot' to join us - whether you are learning your second language or your tenth language, you are most welcome. Come and help create a vibrant language learning community in Christchurch.

The purpose of this group is:
1. To bring language learners/lovers/users together in a fun, social environment.
2. To share techniques, resources and ideas to help each other with our language learning journey.
3. To provide opportunities for members to converse with other speakers of their target language(s).
4. To provide an opportunity for members to develop their own language exchange partners through connections they make at the meetings and also by working together with other local language conversation groups.
5. To help members develop their skills switching between languages by allowing a multilingual environment.
6. To make new friends and discover new cultures through languages.

We plan to hold our meetings using several different formats. To begin with, an event where we could all practice any languages that we may have in common. As the membership grows, we could from time to time have hold events which focus on on different languages such as Chinese. If you have any ideas/suggestions for this group or are otherwise interested in helping us organize events, then we'd love to hear from you!
