'Intercambios Connection' is a place where native speakers and foreigners meet to share language and culture in a friendly atmosphere.

It is an effective and fun way to learn or better your knowledge of any foreign language, meanwhile making new friends with persons from different parts of the world.

At our sessions, you will generally find different groups of people dispersed among different tables. Though at times, you will find a small group speaking in French or maybe Italian or  German, the most commonly practiced is  English in exchange for the local language.

The meetings take place weekly.  To participate, it is necessary that you request a meeting placement indicating the language of choice.

In case you are unsure what to do when you arrive, you may ask the  bartender who can indicate you to NIK|LAS representative.


How does it work?

You should first contact us to request an intercambio session indicating availability and language of choice. On the desired evenings, a session of 30 minutes is arranged between a native that speaks your chosen language. In that timeframe, you are expected to converse in your language as well as the language of your partner for the evening. The format is flexible, so you may talk as little as 30 minutes or as long as 2 hours if you wish to, and about any topic that comes to mind. We try to change your partner for each session, so you can meet other foreigners, and improve your ability to understand the language you wish to practice when spoken with different accents.
