Language Tables offer you the opportunity to have guided conversations in your languages of study in a relaxed environment. These informal gatherings are facilitated by native and near-native speakers, and aim to increase your confidence and ability to communicate in French, Spanish, Italian or Portuguese through cultural topics, games, discussions of current events. All levels welcome. Check out the calendar to find when people interested in the language you want to improve are meeting next.

For the Summer 2020 Term, Language Tables will be held online for French and Spanish.

No registration is required. To join a session:

Each term, a series of cultural activities are proposed to students looking for more opportunities to learn about Romance cultures outside the classroom. These activities aim to connect you to the French-, Spanish-, Italian- and Portuguese-speaking communities on campus and in Vancouver. Consult the calendar regularly to see what’s happening next and how you can experience these cultures without the jetlag! All levels welcome.
