“Languages Cafe” holds daily language exchange events, with no specific level requirement for any language and free of charge for anyone.
“Language Exchange” is an event where participants take time to causally teach and learn each other’s languages. For example at “ENGLISH ONLY CAFE”, there are thirty minutes sessions alternating between English and Japanese conversation time, so that both language speakers have a chance to learn and teach a language. This is not only fun, but also a very effective method of acquiring a language.
During the language exchange, members will talk about topics of their choice. The conversations are conducted not one on one, but in small groups of three or four people so it is easier to engage in a conversation without it being awkward even for beginners of either language.
Although the main purpose of this event is for language learning, making friends here is also encouraged, and often times members will have small after parties to go get dinner or drinks.
