Café Lingua is described as a live meeting place for words, talk and communication and offers people the chance to improve their language skills, find someone with whom to speak your mother tongue, share Icelandic with others and at the same time get to known new languages and cultures.

Guests can ‘speed date with a language,’ by rotating between languages every three minutes.

Everyone is welcome.
