The “Speak Dating” is organized by Alliance Francaise, British Council, Goethe-Institut Taipei and Department of Cultural Affairs, Taipei City Government in collaboration with numerous European representative offices in Taipei in order to propose a chance for people in Taiwan to experience the languages in Europe. By speaking the unfamiliar languages face to face with the native speakers is also a first step to enter different foreign cultures.

It is a special event to celebrate the European Day of languages. This day reminds us that learning a language breaks down cultural barriers and opens the door to new friendships and professional opportunities.

The idea behind the event “Speak Dating” is: you learn two or three phrases for 5 minutes, get a stamp and then move on to the next language booth. With at least 3 stamps, try your luck and get a chance to win a ticket to one among 13 European countries!

In “Speak Dating” event, you will not only easily break cultural barriers, but you will have a taste of several European countries, you will be offered lovely surprises such as sweets, cookies, or any other tiny decorations or goodies that represent our EU countries.

In 2017, “Speak Dating” presents 12 languages booths: Danish, Dutch, English, German, French, Hungarian, Italian, Polish, Slovak, Czech, Finnish and Swedish.

*The event is free of charge and no registration is required. Come join us and date a European language of your choice!
