What we're about
Do you enjoy speaking different languages? Why not join our meetup group and come and practise your -French, Spanish, German, Italian, English as a foreign language (EFL) (and occasionally other languages including Dutch, Portuguese and Mandarin Chinese) - conversation skills in a friendly, relaxed and supportive atmosphere at various venues in Reigate, Redhill, Merstham, Caterham and surrounding areas! Please give your first name when you join our group.
As well as providing opportunities to practise your foreign language conversation skills these meetups are also very enjoyable social events.
Please note that some of the venues we use also have gardens and/or tables outside. Please remember to check the outside areas too when you come to a meetup, in case the group is sitting outside. For example, the garden of the Market Stores pub (in Reigate) is accessed by going inside the pub at ground level, up the stairs to the first floor and then out through the back to the garden (which is at first floor level, as the pub backs onto a hill). Google maps automatically describes that pub as "Inside the Market Stores" and that description may automatically appear in a meetup advert, but some of our meetups do take place outside in the Market Stores pub garden (as well as inside the pub). In the "Photos" section of this website you can see photos of some of the venues we use for our meetups (please see the Reigate, Redhill and Caterham albums). The "Photos" section also contains photos taken in some of the countries where the languages we practise are spoken.
If you join our meetup group but would like to opt out of receiving emails about our events (or to reduce emails to a minimum) just click on your name to bring up your own profile (you can find your name in the list of members), then click on "Email settings" and then you can tick (or untick) the box "New Meetup scheduled" and any other boxes you like, to indicate when (if at all) you want to receive emails from our Meetup group. Even if you opt to receive no emails from our Meetup group you can always look at our Meetup page now and then and check our "Upcoming Meetups" section to see new events, to click to indicate that you are coming to an event, or to check for any potential changes to existing events. Meetup announcements are listed chronologically - to see the full list of meetups, please click on "Meetups" or "See all".
If you book to go to an event and then find that you can't go, that's not a problem but please do remember to change your RSVP from yes to no, so that the organiser of that meetup will know who's coming. "No shows" (i.e. booking to go to a meetup but not turning up and not changing the RSVP) can be very inconvenient for meetup organisers and persistent 'no shows' may result in being removed from membership of our Meetup group.
If you'd like to explore some interesting posts and websites in Spanish, Italian, French, German or Portuguese (including links to news and cultural sites, a free online language learning app, a free online multilingual dictionary and links re town twinning with France and Germany), why not visit us on Facebook at:
"Reigate, Redhill & Caterham Language Café"
Looking forward to meeting you at a language meetup soon!
