My Monday evenings are always reserved for chatting in German with strangers. This is when I join the people at the Café Lingua event organized weekly at Café Mascot. At seven o’clock the whole huge first floor of the place, and some of the upper one as well, gets filled with people chatting in different languages.
Café Lingua is an event for anyone wanting to practice speaking a language they have learned before. Every table is marked with a language or two and both native speakers and others gather around to chat and have a nice evening together. The official hours are from 19:00 – 21:30, but many stay until much later.
Café Lingua is open for all, so just get a drink from the bar and take a seat! The tables are so many, that I’m not even sure what languages are represented, but usually there’s a chance to brush up your English, German, French, Spanish and Japanese at least – and Finnish, of course! And native speakers are always warmly welcomed to the tables.
Like said, I’ll be at the German table, so come and say hallo!
