Where young Internationals meet up with the "real Viennese"
They do exist though: places and occasions, where you can get in touch and experience "international Vienna".
Since a few years an event series known as "Speak Dating Events" has been established which promotes personal exchange between both young people from all over the world as well as Viennese students and professionals.
The breezy crowd of language aficionados gather within the relaxed atmosphere of a big Vienna down town coffee house to talk about everybody and his dog – as well as about life in Vienna!
This extraordinary meeting is hosted by Eton Institute Vienna, whose particular concern it is not to just offer trainings in more than a 100 languages but also to deliver knowledge on different cultural backgrounds and to promote exchange.
A variety of different social events and cultural evenings constitute the ideal framework.
Janille from the Philippines is participant right from the start, "Coffee house atmosphere, variety of languages – what a nice opportunity to socialize with interesting people from all around the world and from Vienna - and to make new friends!"
Claus from Vienna says, "The Speak Dating Events are a great occasion to speak English in a nice and relaxed atmosphere, an easygoing way to stay fluent in English."
To many internationals these events are the first opportunity to network with each other but also to get in touch with the Vienna community. The equally young and international Eton Institute team moderating those gatherings takes care to make these evenings a happy and joyful experience for everybody.
Next upcoming Speak Dating Event will be May 28th 2014, join for free!
