About Cafe de las Lenguas

The language cafe of the University of Groningen Language Centre is weekly organized in the Harmony building in Groningen (the Netherlands). Between 7-9pm you can choose a language table and start practising your language skills. After a while, you can switch tables and join another table. Watch the video below that briefly explains the concept.

What topics can you talk about? 

That's up to you! You can talk about lots of things. Get to know each other first. Introduce yourself. Where do you come from? What are your hobbies? When you want to really improve your oral skills according to the CEFR, you can think of other topics. Have a look at the Seagull project to get inspired.
