Language Café (English only)
By Global Lounge

Language Cafe (English only) on 30 November is CANCELLED


Due to UNISON strike action, the 2pm English and 5pm All-Languages Language Cafés will be cancelled on 30/11/2022.


On this day (Wednesday, 30/11) the Global Lounge will be open from 10:30 am to 5 pm for casual use – students are welcome to use the facilities and meet friends, tea coffee and biscuits available as usual.


For more information about the industrial strike actions in November taken by UCU and UNISON, and also to find out what support is offered to students, please see the University of Bristol and Bristol SU pages. For UNISON members’ position, please read this article.



If you’d like to sharpen your English skills in a friendly, informal environment, why not join our English-only Language Café?

We welcome students and staff to come along and chat with a fluent English speaker, in the comfort of the Lounge. Whether you are a beginner or advanced learner, everyone is welcome!

Simply drop-in to the Global Lounge on Wednesdays during termtime, between 2 and 3:30 pm. Every week we introduce a new theme for you to chat about, for example travel, festive traditions or food. The Café is run by a wonderful team of friendly volunteers, who’ll be happy to answer your questions while you enjoy free tea, coffee and snacks.

Our Language Cafés can be popular, so we recommend turning up early to ensure your place.
