TalkTUM[i:] Language Café

Different languages will be offered by native speakers at various language tables. The group size per table should be around 4-8 people. The café will take place for two and a half hours each week.
There are no preconditions for participation, but the concept is not adapted to absolute beginners with very little language skills (i.e. students who have just started an A1.1 course!)

Weekly, students meet at the tables in the Magistrale for up to 16 languages. During the last semesters there were tables for Chinese, Czech, Danish, English, Esperanto, Farsi, Finnish, French, German as a Foreign Language, Hebrew, Hindi, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Norwegian, Portuguese, Russian, Swedish, Spanish, Vietnamnese.

Are there any more this semester? Be curious and step by!

Let's go virtual in Winter Semester 2020/21: When, where and how?

The TalkTUM[i:] Language Café takes place virtually in winter semester 2020/21 during the lecture period every Tuesday from 16:00-18:00h. This winter semester, the Language Café is organized by TUMi.

The concept stays the same: with a cup of coffee or tea all students interested in languages meet at the virtual tables, speak foreign languages and German, and practice and improve their language skills in an informal setting.

Winter Semester 2019/20: When, where and how?

The TalkTUM[i:] Language Café takes place in winter semester 2019 during the lecture period every Wednesday from 15:00-17:30h at the Magistrale (starting with 16th October 2019). With a cup of coffee or tea all students interested in languages meet at the tables around the big tree at the end of the Magistrale in front of finger 09. Indicate your participation and interest in our facebook group TalkTUMi Language Café. Then everybody knows which language tables are offered. 

Step by and join us, even if it's just for an hour! Especially during the first weeks further new language tables will be opened. We are happy to help you and set you in contact with native speakers and learners respectively.

New: you can add the TalkTUM[i:] Language Café to your TUMonline study schedule!

Note: Most likely our The TalkTUM[i:] Language Café will continue until the end of February, so that you can take a break during the examination period.

Talk Languages in a relaxed atmosphere

With the ongoing internationalization of universities, we experience a growing interest in other countries, cultures and languages. The TUM with approx. 6000 international students bears great potential to experience this world at one place.

In the TalkTUM[i:] Language Café we would like to bring together domestic and international students to experience other cultures, meet new people and strengthen their language skills in a relaxed and informal way.

Next to the well established Language Café on the Main Campus, the start of the Language Café on Garching Campus in winter semester 2014/15 was very successful with up to 12 different language tables, organised by the Departments of Informatics and Physics, together with TUMi.
