Where can I practice foreign languages in Marseille?
Even though being in France allows you to work mainly on your french, it’s also an opportunity to learn new languages. Indeed, you can make the most of your Erasmus experience and work on a language you’ve always wanted to learn. Thus, here is a short article on some examples of where to practice foreign languages in Marseille.
Meetup is an online platform that allows events organisation. What you have to do is to create an account and select your location and hobbies. Then, you can see all the events available and when and where they take place. If you want to participate in an event, you just have to tick the box. You’ll have to pay for some events when it comes to language courses, but the discussion events are usually free. For instance, the “Marseille International meetup association” organises discussions between French locals and foreigners or expats.
Some facebook groups such as Blabla Marseille propose meetings in bars between international students to practice foreign languages (not only English).
You can also create a Facebook group or a discussion to practice english online and meet other students. Don’t hesitate to join Facebook pages such as Erasmus Marseille 2018-2019 to get in touch with the different Erasmus events that will take place during the year. The Erasmus students network of Marseille also gives some advice.
