Come along on Saturday from 12:30 to 2:30pm for a chance to practice your language skills and interact with native and heritage speakers. This first session will be a free-form and informal session in our cafe space within our relaxed and inclusive Zero Waste Hub. There will be coffee, tea and cold drinks available for purchase as well as rescued pastries available by donation. We will have French, Spanish, Polish and English speakers facilitating but the more the merrier! Open to beginners, learners and linguistic veterans alike! This event is free.


The Zero Waste Hub is on the ground floor with a small step at the entrance. A ramp is available upon request. All the public spaces throughout the building are step free and there are gender neutral and powerchair accessible toilets (no changing places toilet) with hand rails.

SHRUB is a sober space with quiet music and low lighting. Noisy sirens do go through the neighbourhood. We do not have a hearing loop installed.
