Studying and Student life

Language Café

Are you interested in foreign languages? Do you want to learn all about other countries and cultures in an informal way? Are you planning on studying abroad? Or maybe you are an exchange student who wants to meet Dutch students and learn their language? This is your chance!

Each semester, there will be two or three a Language Cafés. For every language there are native speakers present (English, German, Dutch, French, Spanish, Chinese, Italian and Portuguese). They can't wait to tell you all about their language, country and culture. The Language Café is a perfect opportunity to practice your language skills or just meet new and interesting people! For students and staff.

Quotes by participants of the pilot

"An excellent idea. I think that was quite obvious since people didn't feel like leaving. It was a very friendly atmosphere and it's also surprising to see how languages (no matter the level you speak them) can connect people."
