Conversation Tables are casual gatherings to converse over coffee and tea in a specific language. They are facilitated by language faculty and do not require an RSVP; thus, participants are welcome to drop in! ALTEC currently supports Conversation Tables in more than ten languages. The tables that previously met in person in The HIVE @ALTEC are meeting online in the spring semester. Please check regularly as we are adding more details and languages.
