Live. Play. Learn.

We already know that the best way to learn a language is through immersion. The Language Lounge is a great way to get that immersion as you come make friends, play games and live life in a different language.

Games

Board games and word games are a great way to increase proficiency.

Workshops

Organized workshops are scheduled for individual language.

Interaction

Social interaction with other learners helps cement your knowledge.

Learning Resources for Over 16 Languages

Available on-site

In order to help you practice your chosen language and spark conversation we have learning resources, games, videos, audio, and books for 16 languages.
If we don’t have resources for the language you’re looking for, just let us know. We get new materials all the time.
Do you want to donate some learning resources? We gratefully accept donations of books, games and videos in any language. Any materials in good condition and which you aren’t using regularly anymore will benefit learners at the Language Lounge

Language Workshops

workshops in 6 languages 

We organize workshops in a number of languages, and we are always eager to start new workshops as soon as we know there’s a demand. So don’t worry if you don’t see your language on the location schedule. Let us know when you come down! We keep score, and plan new workshops as soon as there is enough interest.
You can also let us know on the contact page.

WHY

Why Learn a New Language?

Travel The World With Confidence

It’s just common sense that if you can read the signs, order a meal and ask for directions, any trip to a foreign country will be easier and more pleasant. Where are you heading?

Increase Your Job Opportunities

Speaking multiple languages is always a bonus when you’re looking for a job. Even if the job doesn’t require you to speak a language, just knowing it makes you stand out.

More Perspective on Arts & Culture

As the Italians put it during the Renaissance: Traduttore, traditore. When a play, song, or other art is translated, it is invariably altered; betrayed. Experiencing it firsthand in its original form is much better.

Become a Better Learner

Some people learn better by reading, others by hearing, yet others need to “do” to learn. No matter your particular learning preference, at The Language Lounge, all of your senses become engaged in play, conversation and study.

Business Travel & Communication

With over a million and a half international business trips around the globe every year, chances are you’ll need to speak another language or two for work in the future.
You can start preparing today at the Language Lounge.

Speak With More People

Many online chat groups, WhatsApp groups, some dedicated to language, but even more dedicated to specific interests, like Manga, Inuit art, French films, and so much more, are accessible only in their language. Interested?
