Language Café

Language Café is run by Oxfordshire Libraries and is a safe space for you to talk in English and other languages. It is a place to meet others, ‘swap’ languages and practise speaking and listening in other languages. The session is led by library staff to maintain a happy learning environment for all.

These sessions are free – and open to all adults over 18 years old.
