  Arqus Café (University of Leipzig)

The Arqus Café is a virtual meeting place where students of the Arqus University Alliance can practice their foreign languages outside of language classes. Cafés are not language courses, but an opportunity to use your foreign languages in a relaxed atmosphere and in a small group. Previous knowledge of the language of study is therefore useful, but not a must.

Current language cafés: Arabic, Chinese, Brazilian Portuguese, English, French, German, Italian, Lithuanian, Norwegian, Spanish, Turkish.

Third edition: September 6- December 17, 2021
Info and subscriptions

Coinciding with the Erasmus Days, three days of celebration of the Erasmus+ Programme in Europe and beyond, the Arqus Alliance invites you to special Arqus Cafès on October 14, 2021.
