Europe Direct Leeds runs an adult language exchange which aims to help adult language learners to practice their new language skills. This can be between two native speakers or as part of a group that brings together native speakers and learners. You find each other through our language exchange folder and we can even book a table for you!
To be part of the Language Exchange at Leeds Central Library, you will have to register with Europe Direct who are based in the Information Centre on the second floor. For more details, see the documents below (how it works can be found in the terms & conditions), or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We very much agree with the World Cafe Guidelines:

Unfortunately we cannot always judge how good a resource is as we don’t speak all these languages. We can also not take responsibility for anything that is located outside our website. If you have any suggestions about improving our list or adding to it please let us know.
Not sure what you level is, how to get started, why to learn a language? Have a look at Lingu@net Europa, the multilingual centre for language learning.
