What is an International Language Exchange event ?
During an International Language Exchange event, you will have the opportunity to practice one or more languages by interacting with the different participants.
What languages are represented during the event ?
We never know in advance the languages that are represented during the event but it is certain that the participants come from different countries.
Can I arrive after the event start time?
Yes of course. But don't arrive too late to take advantage of the event.
Is the event free for students ?
Yes, the event is free for students.
What should I do when I first come to the event ?
Go and see the local organizer who will explain how the event works and will be happy to answer all your questions.
I work and I study. How do I know if I am considered a student or a non-student ?
If you spend more time studying, you are considered a student. And vice versa.
Can I buy my ticket on-site ?
For the safety of our organizers, no cash payment is accepted on-site. Only online payments are accepted.

Right after the online transaction, you will normally receive an email from Place Sociale. This is your ticket ! If you have not received this email, please do not hesitate to tell us using the contact form.

How many events do you organize per year ?
Outside of public holidays or exceptional closure of the venue, the event is organized every week. This represents more than 40 events per year.
Why is the event paying for non-students ?
We ask for a financial contribution from non-students to finance the organization of the event (payment for the services of the local organizer and the promotion of the event). Part of the funds collected are also used to finance access to education for children in different countries. On this same idea, the event is free for students.
Why do I have to check-in before coming to the event ?
For organizational reasons (booking of the event venue), it is mandatory to check-in before coming to the event.
When and for how long are monthly and annual subscriptions valid ?
Monthly subscription is valid for one month from the date of purchase. Annual subscription is valid for one year from the date of purchase.
Is your online payment platform secure?
We take the security of online payments very seriously. That's why we chose to work with Stripe, a globally leading payment platform.
