8th Edition of the Arqus Cafés: Registration open


Students and staff from the Arqus universities, which includes also the University of Padua, can now register for the eigth edition of the Arqus Café, which will run from 11 March to 21 June 2024.

The Arqus Café is an online space where members of the Arqus universities can meet in small groups to practice and improve their language skills in a relaxed atmosphere. It’s a great opportunity for students and staff to expand their language and cultural knowledge informally together with other learners. All levels are welcome, but it works best when participants have a minimum of an A2 level. Please note that the cafés are not language courses.

The cafés take place once a week for one hour online via Zoom. The tutors guiding the Arqus Café sessions are native-level speakers who have received training in leading language cafés. This time we are offering cafés in German, English, French, Italian, Khmer Lithuanian, Portuguese, Spanish, Turkish and Ukrainian. In addition, Arqus is now offering cafés at two different levels for some languages: beginner/intermediate (A2-B1) and intermediate/advanced (B2-C1).

Registration is now open and closes two weeks before the end of each language café.
