The Language Cafe connects recent Arabic migrants whose native language is not English with English-speaking members of the community who want to learn or improve their Arabic language skills.
What is the Language Cafe?
Do you want to practice your Arabic language skills with a native speaker? The Language Exchange aims to connect Arabic speakers in Oxford who do not have English as a first language together with people learning Arabic.
Meet with others to both improve your own language skills and help someone with their English. This is a great chance to get involved in and bring benefit to the local community, as well as to help you with your studies!
The Language Cafe takes place weekly on Wednesday's 7.30-9pm at Oxford Hub from 16th January to the 6th March.
Please note: the Language Cafe takes place on the first floor of the Turl Street Kitchen. As this is an old building, unfortunately there is no step free access. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about accessibility.
If you are an Oxford resident interested in volunteering then please email email@example.com.
Who can take part
