Language Coffeehouse

Take a break from studying to order and enjoy kaffe and kanelbullar in Swedish, chai and chakli in Hindi, or gazoz and kuru pasta in Turkish!

Instructors and students from the Less-Commonly-Taught Languages Center will teach you how to place your order in Swahili, Quechua, Irish, Persian, Vietnamese, Hungarian, or one of the 15 languages we offer. Then you can place your order at the Language Coffeehouse and enjoy free drinks and snacks from around the world.

Have you ever wondered what sorts of treats people enjoy in Greece or Ethiopia or Egypt, or how to sign your order at the new Signing Starbucks in DC? Stop by the Language Coffeehouse in the WPU Assembly Room on Friday 2/14 between 11:00 and 1:00 to find out. This is the international study break you have been waiting for!
