World Languages Cafe

The World Languages Café, a collaborative effort between UWB Global Initiatives,  International Student Facilitators, and the Cascadia Language Learning Center is an informal conversation group to practice foreign languages and engage with speakers from across the campus and community. Tables are designated according to language and participants can choose the most appropriate table to join.

Languages

At previous sessions, the World Languages Café has included active groups speaking Spanish, French, Japanese, Arabic, Chinese, German, Vietnamese, Korean, Russian, Swahili, and English. New languages are always welcome!

Guidelines

• All language levels are welcome.
• Participants can be foreign language students (i.e. taking a language course at the UW or Cascadia) or wish to practice a world language they already know.   
• Participants strive to speak in the language of the table they have chosen.
• There are no specific topics; discussion is free-flowing. However, participants may incorporate activities or compile a list of questions in their language to stimulate conversation.
• No long-term commitment is required.
• This is not a foreign language tutoring event.
 

 

All members of the UW Bothell and Cascadia community are welcome!
