One language sets you in a corridor for life. Two languages open every door along the way.

Tandem

Tandem is a way of mutual learning and teaching languages. Basically, you will find someone who would teach you a foreign language and you would teach him yours in return.

The main advantage of Tandem is that it will be just you two who will set the time and the intensity of the courses! You can form as many couples as you wish.

Come to the Tandem evening on Monday 10 February to the P.M. club! See the facebook event.

Café Lingea

Café Lingea is a conversational meeting where we informally chat in different languages (English + some chosen). Café Lingea takes place in a different coffee shop or restaurant each time, so it is also a good opportunity to discover some new places in Prague. Join the Facebook group ISC Café Lingea!

Café Lingeas are here for you every 2 weeks!

Café Lingea

What languages do we speak?
Usually we speak English and one other language (Spanish, German, French, Russian and also Finnish for instance.) What language we will speak next time can be found on our website or in the FB group (ISC Café Lingea).
Can I come if I am not fluent in the spoken language (or if I am beginner)?
YES, for sure. Café Lingea is here because we want to meet not only to talk but also to learn few phrases, vocabulary and also something about the other culture. So you surely do not need to be afraid to come.
