International Café Evening

Our Cook

Invitation for September 28, 2013

International Cafe @ Facebook

Dear International students,

We hope you had a great summer! We look forward to the start of a new season, welcoming back old friends who have joined us in the past, but also meeting new friends as they join our meetings of International Café.

About us

International Café was started in 2008 to make students from abroad feel at home during their time in Groningen. It is a place to relax, meet friends from other cultures, and talk with friendly ‘natives’ about things you may not understand in the Netherlands. You can find more information about us and see photos of our activities on our website.

Our first Saturday evening this season

This season’s first regular monthly meeting of International Café will be held on Saturday, September 28 at the Hereweg 1 in Groningen, from 18:00 until 22:00 o’clock. There will be soup and bread, coffee and tea and homemade cake, and we usually begin with our meal at 18:30. This month there will be a short talk about cultural differences between Holland and the rest of the world! Because many of you may be new we will also be happy to talk further with you about any questions you may have about aspects of Dutch culture which you find challenging or puzzling. As usual there is plenty of time for games and conversation. One of students’ favourite games is shuffleboard, and we invite you to join in!


The evening is free, but there is a box where you can make a small contribution for the costs of rent and food. Please sign up for this meeting by Friday, September 27. Use the form below or join the event through facebook.

This will be our first official meeting of this season. We hope you can join us and bring your friends.

IMPORTANT: If you have signed up but for some reason are not able to come will you please let us know as soon as you can so that we know how much food will be needed!

Welcome! And bring your friends.

During college/school season we plan to organise a monthly event each last saturday of the month. This year also on October 26 and November 30, and off course we hope to organise a great Christmas Dinner as well (but that is still far away:)
