What we're about

This is a meetup group for helping in learning foreign languages. Doing it together is more fun.

Luxembourg, being a country that host multiple nationalities, gives us a vast opportunity in this area: lots of native providers, and I am sure, lots of people who want to learn more languages. French, German, Russian, Luxembourgish, Spanish, Portugese, Chinese, Italian, Korean, Polish, name it.

I hope you would find what you are looking for here.

Language Exchange in the Park

Kinnekswiss Park

Keep your finger crossed for OK weather and please bring something to sit on!

This is a language exchange event for those who want to learn or practice French, German, English, Luxembourgish or any other language you find an interlocutor for. Especially in Luxembourg, speaking multiple languages is an essential skill. The journey of learning a language is a discovery road in which it is great to meet advantaged/native speakers and language learners with who you can practice your listening and speaking skills. All levels are welcome, and you’re also welcome for a drink and a chat of course.

* Please sit with a group of your preferred language exchange, you will recognize them by the language signs/windchimes
* Each group can have a maximum of 10 language practitioners. If there is more than 10 people in one group, please form 2 smaller groups.
* Wearing a mask is mandatory in accordance with the Luxembourgish regulations.
* Please do take responsibility to maintain social distancing.
* By arriving to this event you agree that the organizers cannot be held liable in case any of the participants violate the current regulations
* Feel free to post a message in the group if you are looking for an interlocutor for a language other than French, English or German. (Most of the times we also have Luxembourgish).
* BYOB but do not get intoxicated in public.
* Current covid restrictions: https://covid19.public.lu/en/sanitary-measures/gatherings.html

We are meeting at 4PM in our old spot: parc Kinnekswiss (next to Avenue de la Porte-Neuve).by the dead tree. Watch out for the flags. Bring blankets, chairs, drinks and food if you like 😊
