Are you a native English speaker? Do you enjoy meeting new people, especially those not from the UK? Maybe you’re learning a new language and want to practise it with a native speaker? 

Is English your second language? Do you want to practise speaking English with native speakers? 

If you answered yes to any of these questions, the Language and Culture Exchange is for you!  

How the event works… 

  1. Create a label to show your name and native language 
  2. Grab a drink from the bar and take a seat  
  3. Rules and instructions announced at 7.45pm 
  4. 1st half. You will speak to about 5 different people  
  5. Break time! Grab another drink from the bar  
  6. 2nd half. You will speak to about 5 different people  
  7. The bar is open until 11pm so feel free to stick around and chat to your new friends! 

You will have two options during each half: 

  • Speed Style – sitting face to face with another person and have approx. 2 minutes to chat before we move you round to meet someone new 
  • Stick to the informal seating area where you can chat and meet new people in groups 

In each case there will be conversation starters to help you strike up a conversation. There will also be volunteers on hand to make sure you are in the right place!
