What we're about
Mundo Lingo is a sociable and completely free new way to practice another language in Wellington and make local friends as much locals as tourists.
• We organize one weekly event: • • Every Thursday at 7pm at El Barrio
How does it work? Every participant is given a selection of flag-stickers to stick on their chest. These flags represent your languages and go in order of ability from native at the top to weakest at the bottom - Easy! We give you one piece of advice: "Stay standing and only sit down for a private conversation".
Why? Because if you stand it's easier for people to catch your eye and come and talk to you, and visa versa. It allows people to move and flow from group to group in a way you just can't achieve sitting down.
Who are we? We are people of all nationalities and ages. People from all kinds of amazing backgrounds speaking all sorts of different languages from beginner to advanced. There are no limits and nobody is exempt. We get together for a good night, practice languages, make friends and have a nice time. In any one event you might hear people having conversations in over a dozen different languages!
How many people go? - We usually expect at least 50 people per event. Most of our participants are not members of MeetUp so don't be put off by low numbers here, we're a well established event.
People look young and pretty in the photos, am I too old? Nah! We just have really good photographers. This event is for all ages. The majority are 25 to 40 but we get plenty of people from outside those parameters too.
