Starting with January 31, 2022, the Stockholm University announces the beginning of a new series of Language Cafes, organized within CIVIS. Those interested to get notified when the schedule is published and the cafes start are asked to sign up using this registration form.
Language Cafe sessions offer the opportunity to practise languages in an informal setting, over a cup of coffee or tea, together with other students and native speakers. The 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.
Starting with the spring term of 2022, the Stockholm University hopes to offer both on-campus language cafes, as well as digital language cafes through Zoom.
The Language Cafes are open to students and staff at all CIVIS universities, but also to students and staff at the following universities: Hankuk University of Foreign Studies, South Korea, Leipzig University, Germany, Osaka University, Japan, and Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México, Mexico.

Students and staff who are interested in participating for language practice sign up for the spring term through our registration form. All participants sign up individually using their official university email address and receive a confirmation email.
