Language Café

About our Language Cafe:

BaselConnect's Language Cafe is a project that first started in the early 2010's, as a response to Basel expats' need to practice their German and learn other languages as well.

The Language Cafe is free and open to members and non-members. Registration is necessary, as places are limited and invitations for the virtual sessions must be sent well in advance.


Sessions take place every 2 weeks and are 2 hours long. In the first hour, participants speak German with each other and in the second hour, the group breaks out and the subgroups can practice other languages.

Language requirements:

We are looking forward to welcoming participants with a B1 and over German language level.


Participants can register using the form to the right. They will receive a calendar invitation including all the log on details.

Virtual session requirements:

We use Google Meet to organize our virtual sessions. To access them from a mobile phone, participants must download the Google Meet app. Participants logging on from their computers can access Google Meet on their browser from the link they receive in the invitation.
