Buenos Aires Multi-Lingual Language Exchange Night
An Indian, a Russian and an Argentine walk into a bar… “Ouch!”
This isn’t just a bad joke, it’s also a reality. Every week in an Irish pub in the heart of Buenos Aires people of all nationalities, including local Argentines of course, come for a drink, a chat, and even a bite to eat. Some come to meet new people, some looking for a date, some even come straight from the airport looking for a couch to surf on! But most come with the intention or at least the excuse of practicing another language.
How does it work?
It’s probably the most relaxed kind of language exchange you can imagine. There are no rules, you don’t have to pay for anything or write anything down and nobody is going to tell you what to do. You can talk to whoever you like. To make it easier to find your perfect language exchange partner(s) just find the little table with the flag stickers. There’s a kind of system worked out in which the sticker that represents your native language goes at the top, and the rest follow in order of ability. You’ll see people wearing flags from most European language speaking countries, as well as Slavic, Arabic and Asian languages. Of course the most common exchanges are Spanish, English, Portuguese, German and French.
So that’s ‘What’ and ’Why’. Who, When and Where?
Everyone is invited and nobody is excluded. People here are very warm and inviting. Nobody get’s left behind and as you come back the second and third time that you start to recognise some people. The event is every Tuesday in the Micro Center. To see more info, photos and to find out about Slavic and Asian nights check out the page at facebook.com/mundolingo
