About the event

There will be a table for each language requested. The language list as of 2/20/24 is as follows:

Arabic. 5

ASL  1

Basque  2

Bengali  1

English  18

Esperanto  1

French  28

Galego  1

German  4

Greek  3

Hungarian  1

Italian  12

Japanese  7

Korean  4

Mandarin  8

Persian  1

Portuguese  9

Russia  6

Spanish  46

Turkish  3

Please stick to speaking the language of the table. For example, avoid having a lengthy conversation in English at the Spanish table. Of course, it is always okay to clarify things in English, but in the spirit of the event, try to avoid speaking it as much as possible unless you are at the English table.

If you don't speak any other languages but are still interested in joining us, come help others improve their English! We have people from all over the world who come to practice their English, and they always appreciate having a native speaker to help them.

This is a casual, social event with a large number of attendees. You will have the opportunity to practice speaking other languages and meet people from all different cultures and backgrounds, but if you are looking for a quiet, intimate conversational group, you may want to look elsewhere. Translation: Our events can get noisy and crowded (and fun!)

Something is wrong with your website. I'm trying to buy a ticket for the Feb. 21 gathering, but when I open the Quantity box it's blank and won't let me choose a number for attendees. Looking forward to the event.
