Come and sign up for the language café! We are looking forward to meeting you there.

Students who are passionate about languages have the opportunity to join us in their free time to chat about all things related to languages and cultures in a relaxed and casual environment. Tutors of native-speaker level will be there to co-ordinate the events. Participants are encouraged to actively contribute to the sessions and have their say in planning future topics and activities. Emphasis is placed primarily on conversation - language and culture should be experienced and discussed together.

Language cafés meet both online and on-campus every week during the lecture period.
