Conversation Clubs:

GERMAN:  Stammtisch ("The German Table") at Mcmenamin's on Monroe in Corvallis from 7-9pm every other week, on the even-numbered weeks (2, 4, 6, 8, and 10). This is an opportunity for students, staff, faculty, and community members to gather and speak German, and/or speak about German-related topics. 

FRENCH:  Café-Rencontres Francophones Mondays 4:30-6:00, Clodfelters in Corvallis.   An initiative of the OSU French Department, Café-Rencontres is a casual French conversation group open to members of the OSU and greater-Corvallis communities. We welcome all levels of French from beginner to native, and we enjoy speaking French in a laid-back atmosphere. It's not a class, but we do offer feedback and help each other as we go along.

SPANISH:  The Spanish Club meets Tuesdays at 6:00 PM at the Cesar Chavez Cultural Center at Oregon State University.  This club is for all levels of Spanish and anyone intersted in learning about Spanish language and cultures of the Spanish speaking world.
