Language and Culture Table Program

Language and culture tables have been part of the International House's long tradition to promote multicultural environment. They are informal weekly one-hour gatherings in which interested University of Chicago students and scholars, native and non-native speakers, can meet to speak in a foreign language to develop language skills and to promote cultural enrichment through conversation.
