The Department of Language Education of Stockholm University organises Language Cafe sessions where students and university staff from a CIVIS member university get the opportunity to practise languages in an informal setting, together with other students and native speakers.

What is a Language Cafe?

The idea of a Language Cafe is to practise your language skills and cultural awareness by talking to native speakers and other learners, informally, over coffee or tea. The cafes are run by student native speakers on a voluntary basis. No credits are given and no teachers are present, unless they are learners, too. You are welcome to participate on a regular basis or drop in spontaneously. 

Languages available

20 languages are currently offered and you can participate in as many sessions as you want! 


Check out the Språkstudion website to see the latest schedule for Language Cafes, which restarted in September 2021.


The digital language cafes are FREE and open to students and staff at universities across the CIVIS Alliance. If you want to start attending, then you just need to register using you university email address.

You can join the the Language Cafes online via the e-meeting service Zoom.
