Language dating

Practice language with a colleague!

Language dating provides an opportunity for employees with different mother tongues to practice each other’s languages together alternately. It is up to each ”language pair” to decide when and where to meet. You may for instance  have lunch together, go to the Oslo Met’s Language Café or maybe go for a walk in the park.

To participate, please register so that we can help you find a language partner. In cases where there is not any colleagues with mutual language interests, it might take a little while before we contact you.
