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 (at least at A2 level).

The language cafes take place ones a week.

We are looking forward to meeting you there!

The language cafes are expected to start in the second week or third of lectures (the start date can be found on StudIP).
The meetings do not take place on holidays and during the lecture-free period.
You can join the Language Café groups at any time in the semester. For organizational reasons, we kindly ask you to register on StudIP. Just click on the Language Café in which you are interested. You should already have a language level of at least A2.
