❓Can I come if I am a beginner/haven't started learning yet?
👉Language learners and enthusiasts of all levels are welcome! That said, you will get the most out of the event if you can speak at least a little in the language you are learning.

❓Can I come late?
👉Yes! You can come at any time you like after the event has started.

❓What time does the event end?
👉The official times for the event are 4-6 PM. There are usually a large number of people who stay until 7-8 PM.

❓How often does this event take place?
👉Every weekend!

❓Can I move between tables?
👉Of course! If you are practicing multiple languages you can move between tables as you wish. Just make sure you spend some of the time helping people with your native language!

❓Where is the English table?
👉Every table is an English table! Just go to the table with the sign for your native language and meet English speakers learning your language to practice with.

❓Is there an X language table?
👉All tables are based on attendance, our popular tables are listed above and we try and connect people that share language interests at the event. We are happy to open a table for any language - just comment below and arrive on time :)
