Language Meetups

What are Valar Language Meetups?

Valar Language Meetups aim to facilitate networking among Valar students and alums who speak languages other than English. Each meetup will have a specified target language and be held entirely in that language. This means that the communications, supplementary materials, and live interaction will all be in the language set by the event. By participating in these casual meetups, we hope Valar's global community of learners will feel more connected to others who speak the same language.

How do I host a Valar Language Meetup? 

We are always delighted for student and alums volunteers to lead Language Meetups! Responsibilities of Language Meetup volunteers include:

  • Coordinating with Valar staff to determine suitable dates and times for the Language Meetup;
  • Translating event descriptions, announcements, discussion questions, and prompts into the target language;
  • Facilitating and leading the Language Meetup as scheduled;
  • Sourcing materials in the target language that will spark discussion among participants (if relevant).
