Multilingual LC workshops create a relaxed opportunity to discuss cultural issues from different perspectives and bring international and local students together. LC events offer the participants a chance to brush up language skills and learn more about intercultural communication and different cultures. The spring semester 2020 multilingual workshop will be organized at the Language Centre, room 310 (Fabianinkatu 26, 3rd floor) 19 March 2020 from 17:15 to 18:45.

In language clubs you can meet new people and talk to students and native speakers of the language in question. Clubs also help you activate, develop and keep up your language skills in a relaxed setting. Clubs are partly planned by the participants and the club hosts are usually native speakers of the group language. Come and join club meetings and bring a friend – beginner's skills are enough to get by! You can also join in the middle of a term. If needed, Finnish and English can be used as intermediary languages.
LC events and Asian language clubs are provided by the Language Centre and open for all University of Helsinki students and staff as well as collaborating high school teachers and students. The club meetings and LC events are informal gatherings and they yield no academic credits.
