What we're about
This is THE group to expand your language abilities! We are a real-life united nations! All attendees are given a label to indicate the languages they speak or want to practise - so simply look for someone with a label that matches yours, and your conversation starts! All levels welcome.
Our joint languages so far include Arabic, Catalan, Danish, Dutch, English, Farsi, French, German, Greek, Italian, Japanese, Lithuanian, Malay, Mandarin, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Spanish, Turkish, Urdu - and we even managed to match up 2 Welsh speakers to practise. Let's try to expand the list!
It's a relaxed group, in a pub - so simply join us for a couple of drinks - beer, wine or coffee - and get those languages into practice! At times, you will be speaking your native language for people to practise with you, and then you will have the opportunity to practise your foreign languages with other native speakers. Come practise 2, 3 or 4 languages within one evening!
We start at 7, and stay in the pub all evening until 11, so plenty of time to practise more than one language with different people. Do not worry if you can't join us at 7 - any time is OK.
