Language Cafe in Fribourg
Calendar: Social Events

*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings
City/Town: Fribourg
Event Type: Coffee/Chat
Meeting Point: Cafe des Arcades, Rue des Ormeaux 1

This is a language exchange event where both foreigners and locals can join to practice or learn a language while meeting people. Just come in and talk about anything you want, and stay for as long as you want.

Languages for this event will be English and French. However, if you know other languages you are welcome to join in. Its all about networking as well.

The idea is to speak in English for 30 minutes and then switch to French and so on. We can also rotate people around to make it more interesting.

Cafe des Arcades is located here:

The goal would be to make this a weekly event if there is enough interest.

Please mention if you will attend.

Will this event still be happening this evening?

I should be coming along and bringing a guest as well.

How will we recognise each other?

Yep, this event is still going on tonight peeps.... for the first time. There will be other attendees from onvasortir.com and couchsurfing.com. So feel free to join, and lets meet up.

I'll have a piece of paper that says "language cafe" on the table. Or, if I see you wondering around I'll wave at you.

Re: Language Cafe in Fribourg

Sorry I can't join you,, I am just too far away. But what a brilliant idea- we have the same thing here in Neuchatel, great for the café, plenty of drinks bought on a quite night, and great for all the participants. It took a while to establish, and many people are currently on holiday- so do persevere. Numbers will pick up in September. Enjoy and bravo.
