Cafe de las Lenguas
In addition to these courses, Groningen also offers you a place to practice the languages you're learning. Café de las Lenguas organizes gatherings at the Harmoniegebouw of the University of Groningen. You can choose a language table and practice your language skills by simply conversing with others. After a while, you can choose to switch tables and engage in conversation in another language.
