Language café

At the library’s library café you have the opportunity in an informal and fun way to practice a new language through conversation over a cup of tea or coffee. Language is at the heart at this café. The language café often has a language leader but it is the participants who decide what the discussion is about. A language café can take place between one and two hours and occur regularly. Some language cafés are part of a study group and others are drop-in classes where advanced registration is not required. Language café is open to the public, free of charge, and is based on active participation. At the International Library, we often have language cafés that practice Swedish, but there are also other languages.


On the library’s ground floor there are public toilets for visitors.
