Café Lingua is a platform for those who want to enhance their language skills, Icelandic or other languages, a place to communicate in and about various languages as well as a gateway into different cultures. The goal is to “unveil” the linguistic treasures that have found their way to Iceland, enriching life and culture, as well as giving world citizens the option to express themselves in Icelandic and to introduce their mother tongues to others. The Café Lingua events of the autumn are held in the culture houses of Reykjavik City Library, “Veröld” – the Vigdís World Language Centre and in “Stúdentakjallarinn” at the University of Iceland.
Everybody interested in languages and in contributing to the linguistic landscape of Reykjavik is welcome. Free admission.
The project is run by the Reykjavik City Library and the Vigdís World Language Centre.
Cooperation partners August – December 2017:
Faculty of Languages and Cultures, Icelandic as a second language , Russian and East-European studies and the student associations Linguae and Huldumál at the University of Iceland, The Icelandic Village, individuals from the Philippines living in Iceland and the multilingual women’s choir “Múltíkúltíkórinn”.
