What we're about

A place to make new friends, socialise and learn about languages and culture in friendly language-focused mini-meetups!

The Edinburgh Language Exchange aims to foster a community of individuals interested in exchanging experiences and knowledge on languages, travel and culture, from all over the world. Our Code of Conduct sets out the basic Be-Nice rules, to ensure a convivial and inclusive atmosphere!

We strive to ensure our meetups are open to everybody, whatever their language experience - it's not your level that counts, it's all about the desire to communicate!

As social-meeting restrictions continue to be imposed and relaxed in waves, the start of 2022 will focus on encouraging everyone - you too! - to help organise mini-meetups for 5-10 people, focused around a single language. We can announce events for anyone who would like to organise a small one-off event centred around a single language with any activity - walking, culture club (book, music, museum, cinema, ...), food and drink (pub meets, dinner outings), sport (playing, viewing), or anything you would want to meet people and chat about in a new language...!

We look forward to seeing you all and remember: "To go fast, one goes alone; but to go far, we go together."
