What we're about
Welcome to the Language & Culture Exchange meetup in Umeå!
This group is new.
If you want to talk with native speakers to learn a new language, improve your language skills, or are simply eager to discover new cultures, you have found the right place! ;)
The goal of this hub is to connect local people and people who have come to Umeå from other countries in order to help them understand each other's culture and languages while developing new friendships. Whether you are someone fond of foreign languages, a student, a recent immigrant, an employee of an international company or a world traveler, this group aims to bring together native and non-native speakers of many different languages from various countries around the world who have a passion for sharing their their culture, knowledge, language and overseas experiences while learning about others. We also want newcomers, couch-surfers and visitors to see, enjoy, and learn more about Umeå.
Any age, gender, ethnicity and social class is welcome. We will not judge you.
We meets every Monday and encourages long term friendships between members. Our members speak different languages including Swedish, English, and French. Come as you are; this is a casual meeting. Please RSVP to the event before showing up if you can, this helps us to keep track of numbers so we can plan/organize events in a better way. If you're new, just come to us and introduce yourself in a simple way.
