What is a language cafe?

At a Language Cafe session, you practise your language skills and cultural awareness by talking to native-level speakers and other learners over a cup of coffee or tea. Språkstudion's language cafes are run by students on a volunteer basis, with no formal language teachers present. Cafe sessions allow you to practise a language you want to improve at in a relaxed environment, regardless of your current level.

Who can participate?

The Language Cafes are open to all students and staff at the following universities:

  • Stockholm University
  • All CIVIS universities
  • Hankuk University of Foreign Studies, South Korea
  • Leipzig University, Germany
  • Osaka University, Japan
  • Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México, Mexico

Alumni from Stockholm University can also sign up by emailing info@sprakstudion.su.se.
You are welcome to participate on a regular basis or drop in spontaneously. The language cafes are a complement to your more formal classes and participation generates no course credits. We don't save the information of your presence at the language cafe.

To sign up for the cafes, please use our registration form.

Where are the cafes held?

During 2021, all language cafes will be held through Zoom. To take part in a cafe session, you need to download Zoom and activate your camera and microphone. Using a headset is recommended.

The cafe meeting room in Zoom will open about 10 minutes before the start of the language cafe. When you enter the room, you will first enter the lobby. Staff from Språkstudion will then let one person in at a time and make sure that you're placed in the correct cafe group.

Available languages

Each language is scheduled for one or two sessions a week. The list of cafe languages depends entirely on our current coordinators, and we are always recruiting new language cafe coordinators in as many languages as possible. Would you be interested in coordinating a language cafe in your first language(s)? Read more about the coordinator role here and contact us for more information.

Welcome!
