Language Circles are a free time activity coordinated by the Centre for Language and Communication studies, and they're meant for the students of University of Turku. Language Circles are a great opportunity to get to know other people, cultures and languages. Groups are available in different languages, and the idea is to use that specific language in the group so that the native speakers can help non-native speakers practice their language skills.
If you want to join a group, contact the group leader.
