Communities

Practice your conversational skills and participate in cultural events in UBC and Vancouver.


FHIS Cultural Club

Practice your French, Spanish, Italian, or Portuguese through Language Tables and learn more about Romance cultures through food, music, films, and cultural events.

The FHIS Cultural Club is operated in tandem with the FHIS Learning Centre. To learn more, contact learningcentre.fhis@ubc.ca.

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.
