What we're about

The purpose of this group is to bring together people who are interested in international friendships, languages, and cultures. This group is for everyone who loves learning languages, has either lived in other countries or just moved to Florida, or is interested in language and intercultural training. The group meets on a regular basis at a local restaurant to eat, drink, chat, share stories, give advice, ask others for their opinion, help, and support, and to make new friends with similar interests. The group is lead by Renata, a multi-lingual/ multi-cultural language, intercultural, and communication skills trainer with international living and working experience who loves to bring together people from all over the world to start a roundtable of international friends.

FREE ONLINE Language & Culture Meetup (Zoom)

Online event

This group of like-minded polyglots and global citizens meets online every last Friday of the month.

I usually present a language and culture related topic, which leads to comments and group discussions. We also brainstorm topics, practice other languages, and chat in breakout rooms. We cover topics related to multi-lingualism, different countries and cultures, relocating, or experiences abroad, and we share stories and help each other with recommendations, tips and tricks. Everybody is welcome!

SPECIAL TOPIC for May 28th, 2021:
PERCEPTIONS & ASSUMPTIONS IN INTERCULTURAL COMMUNICATION
Our personality, the culture(s) we are accustomed to and that we have learned to navigate, as well as ever-changing circumstances influence what perceptions we have, what assumptions we make, and how we behave and communicate based on those perceptions and assumptions. I will share some background information about this topic in a presentation to stimulate group discussion afterward. Learn something new and share your language and cultural experiences with others!

SPECIAL TOPIC for June 25th, 2021:
LANGUAGE & CULTURE - HOW ONE INFLUENCES THE OTHER
There are many theories about the influence of language on culture and vice versa. I will introduce some of those theories including examples as well as observations from my own multi-lingual and multi-cultural life before inviting the group to share their stories and insights. Learn something new and share your language and cultural experiences with others!
