Do you want to practice speaking Dutch in a group? You can do that in a language café! Together with other people from all over the world and a volunteer you talk about different topics: for example holidays or food. You do that in a fun and friendly way. You often play a language game or listen to a song. The following language cafés are organized in Nijmegen:

Nijmegen Library

The Nijmegen Library (Bibliotheek Nijmegen) organises a language café at various locations in Nijmegen. Look here for times and locations. You can join a language café for free and you do not have to register. On the Facebook page Taalcafé Nijmegen you can read about the topics of the language café.

The Nijmegen Library also organises reading groups. In a reading group you read books for adults, together with others. Without difficult words and with short sentences. You also talk about the story. The library provides the books.
