What we're about

We are also on Facebook. Feel free to join us ( https://www.facebook.com/groups/2381334508814643/ ).

Do you want to learn or practice a foreign language and have the opportunity for a real language and cultural exchange? We are a group of people that get together to practice and learn new languages! Join us at our weekly language exchange meetings to brush up on a foreign language and learn something completely new about another culture! Our members split into smaller practice groups to improve their French, Italian, German, English, Spanish, Portuguese, Korean, Japanese, Chinese and many other languages, and you can also help other members to improve in your native language and learn your culture! We will also have other evening and cultural events such as ethnic restaurant events, cultural activity events, cultural related classes, outdoor picnics and happy hours to promote language practice and cultural exchange!
