Language Café

„If you know many languages then you have many keys for a castle.“
The french philosopher Voltaire said this sentence 300 years ago. We think that this quote still fits.

That is why we would like to invite you to our Language Cafés. The idea is quite simple: At a Language Café you can just drop by, chat with each other in a nice atmosphere and at the same time polish up your language skills, make new friends and find out more about other cultures. The meetings are led by native speakers. You should already be able to speak and understand the target language a little bit.

The language cafes take place ones a week.

We are looking forward to meeting you there!

Due to the Covid 19-situation we are offering our language cafes virtually. This list is constantly updated. Please check back regularly for new language cafés. You can join the language cafes at any time!
