Come to Chicago Language Cafe event at the beautiful Artifact Events space in Ravenswood! As always, this event is 100% free for you and your friends. There will be a full bar and delicious snacks available for purchase.
At Chicago Language Cafe you can make some new friends and practice speaking a language that you are learning or already know. There will be a table for each language represented. Feel free to move around to different tables if you speak multiple languages! We generally have English, Spanish, German, French, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Arabic, Russian, Italian and ASL tables.
Post in the comments if you're interested in other languages. We will have flags you can borrow to signify languages that don't currently have a designated table. This will help you to find some other folks who are looking to learn/teach the same!
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!)
