If you're feeling a bit nervous or need someone to go with, just introduce yourself to any of the organizers and we'll be more than happy to assist you in any way we can.

• Is it okay to come alone?
Almost the half of our guests are new to the group and to the event itself, if you see anyone with flags we encourage you to go an interact with others. Everyone here is chill and easy going! You will find new friends or someone to talk to in literally no time.

Who are we?
We are people of all nationalities and ages. People from all kinds of amazing backgrounds speaking all sorts of different languages from beginner to advanced. We get together for some good drinks, practice languages, make friends, and have a nice time. During our events, you might hear people having conversations in over a dozen different languages!

How does it work?
You will get different little sticker flags, your native language goes at the top. If you speak more than one, then the rest in orden of proficiency.

How much does it cost?
To cover our administrative costs and offer you the best experience we need your help! That's why we have a minimum consumption of 6€. There is no entrance fee, though.

People look young and pretty in the photos, am I too old?
Nah! We just have really good photographers. This event is for all ages. The majority is 25 to 40 but we get plenty of people from outside that range.

Where can I see all the pictures?
You can find all the pictures taken in each event in our Facebook Page, give us a like if you like what we do!
