Sunday Evening Books, Reading and Discussion Session [Cancelled]
Hey Everyone, Let's get together again this Sunday evening for our usual reading session. =) The way this works: We usually start with a bit of discussion on who's reading what and what they think of it. [This could go on for about an hour]. Then each person will read / study whatever they like, on their own. There is no official end time for this event. The point is to dedicate some time to reading, together in a relaxing set-up. This is important for us as we are mostly busy people who may not have enough of a chance to dedicate time to reading during the week. The main language of the event is English, however we usually have people who speak various languages, so it's possible to get help if you're trying to read a book in a language that you're learning. I've put this event on auto-repeat as we organise it pretty regularly, but please note that it will only take place if enough members have signed up. If you'd like to make sure that the event takes place, please RSVP before Tuesday as that's when I'll decide whether the event takes place that week. Our usual instructions / coc apply to this event. Please make sure to read them. Cheers, A+

What we're about

This group is dedicated to languages and linguistics, as well as the culture and history attached to them. If you'd like to learn, practice, discuss or share your knowledge of languages, this is the right place for you.

The group was founded in 2011, by my friend Carmen, who came across the idea while visiting Sweden. At the time there was no such groups in Zurich, and she decided to start one. Throughout the years this group has given many people the opportunity to teach and learn a variety of languages. We intend to keep it that way. =)

Join the group, attend our events and have lots of fun learning new languages and improving existing skills! And if you'd like to organise your own language events, please drop me a line.

The original title of the group was "Zurich's Language Exchange", and as of January 2018 we changed it to the current one. This was due partly to our community evolving, and the fact that we are now doing quite a bit more with languages than simply exchanging them. We have been digging into literature and having hours long linguistics discussions. We have been exchanging golden nuggets out of culture and history. And we felt that the group needed a title that reflected that. On the other hand unfortunately the group's name had been copied too many times, resulting in confusion for the people trying to find our community. [Please note that we are not in any way associated with any other language groups.]

Oh, and we now have a Slack channel that we use to discuss events, activities and all related topic. If you'd like to join, please drop me a line with your email address so that I can invite you.

Mind you, this group has a code of conduct (

Cheers and see you all soon!
