Multilingual LC events handle 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. In the Spring semester 2019 there will be one LC event on 21st March 2019 at 17.15 – 18.45 in Language Centre room 310 (Fabianinkatu 26, 3rd floor).
Asian language clubs (Japanese, Chinese and Korean) meet at the Language Centre every two weeks on Friday afternoons at 14.15 – 15.45 in room 205 (2nd floor). In the upcoming Spring semester the first meeting will be held on 1st March and the last on 26th April 2019 (1.3., 15.3., 29.3., 12.4. and 26.4.2019).
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 – a beginner level is enough to get by! You can also join in 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. The club meetings and LC events are informal gatherings and they yield no academic credits.
