Develop / Maintain Your Czech Speaking Skills at the Czech Table

This is an opportunity for Czech language speakers to keep their language and cultural heritage alive in Seattle. The group meets weekly at the Continental Restaurant (4549 University Way NE, Seattle). Native speakers and students learning the language meet together.

The Czech Table meets every other Tuesday, 4:30-6:30 PM during University of Washington Quarters. This is an established, on-going group that follows the University of Washington schedule. They meet every Tuesday during the Autumn, Winter and Spring quarters. If there's a Czech class during Summer, they will be meeting then, too. All Czech speakers are invited to visit the Czech table whenever the U is in session. See the web site for more information http://www.students.washington.edu/paul/groups.html or send an email to the Czech Table Czech: C'esky' Stuul
