About the event

There will be a table for each language requested. Feel free to move around to different tables if you speak multiple languages. We generally have English, Spanish, German, French, Mandarin, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Arabic, Russian, Italian and ASL tables.

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 meetup 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 meetups can get noisy and crowded (and fun!)

*This meetup is inclusive to everyone regardless of age, race, ethnicity, gender and sexual orientation. We want everyone to feel welcome here, and any discrimination or repeated, unwelcome advances are strictly prohibited– No means NO. Offenders will be asked to leave immediately and will not be allowed to return. If you have any concerns, please PM me directly.

Similarly, religious, political, and other ideological conversation is bound to happen. It is even encouraged, as it is through our differences that we learn from one another and grow with each other! However, we ask that you stop any disagreement before it becomes personal and/or nonconstructive. Again, if things get out of hand, folks will be asked to leave. Respect one another as fellow human beings, and all will be well.

This event has a group. You’re welcome to join the group once you register for the event.
