European Day of languages: the "Speak Dating" event
Do you like learning languages? Are you interested in European cultures? Do you want to meet people from Europe? Then join us and have a “date” with European languages!
The “Speak Dating” event is a project of the European Union National Institutes for Culture in Hong Kong (Alliance Francaise, British Council, Goethe-Institut Hongkong and Italian Cultural Institute of Hong Kong) in collaboration with numerous European Consulates General in Hong Kong and supported by the European Union Office to Hong Kong and Macao. It is a special event to celebrate the European Day of languages. The day is a reminder of the many benefits of language learning, and how it can break down cultural barriers and open the door to new friendships and professional opportunities.
This year, “Speak Dating” offers free language sessions in 14 languages: Czech, Dutch, English, Finnish, French, German, Hungarian, Irish, Italian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Spanish and Swedish.
The idea behind the event “Speak Dating” is: You learn two or three phrases for 5 minutes, get a stamp in your “European language passport”, and then move on to the next language booth. You will win small prizes after successfully finishing your language session. In the process, you will also be able to gather more information about the cultural and linguistic diversity of Europe and where to study the European language you like.
The event is free of charge and no registration is required.
Come join us and date a European language of your choice!
