Language Tables

View the schedule.

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.

Until further notice, Language Tables will be held online.
