Invitation for January 31

International Cafe @ Facebook

Dear International students,

What a wonderful time we had with so many of you at the Christmas dinner! As the new year has begun we would like to welcome back many old friends and to invite new friends to participate in our meetings of International Café.

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.

This meeting

This year’s first regular monthly meeting of International Café will be held on Saturday, January 31 at the Madoerastraat 16 in Groningen, from 18:00 until 22:00 o’clock. There will be soup and bread, coffee and tea and homemade cake. This month we will have a relaxed evening of games and conversation, and give you a chance to let us know what you think of International Cafe. Because many of you may be new we will also be happy to talk with you about questions you may have about aspects of Dutch culture which you have encountered. These meetings are always a great opportunity to meet students from different countries as well as some Dutchies! One of students’ favourite games is shuffleboard, and we invite you to join in!

Want to give a short talk?

If you would like to give a short talk about your country sometime please let us know! We welcome new ‘speakers’ for our evenings and it is so interesting to learn about our friends’ home countries. We have a beamer, so you can use power point.

Sign up

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, January 30.

We hope you can join us and bring your friends.
