About us

Hola! Salut! Salam!

We are a friendly group founded to help LSE students keep up with their language skills in a relaxed setting. We currently have six main language divisions: French, German, Italian, Malay, Mandarin, and Spanish. We’re pretty new but we have big plans for the year ahead, including:

  • Regular ‘coffee break’ conversation sessions;
  • Social events to celebrate different cultural festivals; and
  • Talks from multilingual professionals on how they’ve used languages in their careers.

We will also collaborate with the school newspaper, The Beaver, on a modern languages blog to which members can contribute! In addition, we’re pleased to partner with the LSE Language Centre and Bright Network to bring members even more events and opportunities.

We can’t wait to see you soon!

Bis bald! Jumpa lagi! Bù jiàn bù sàn!
