Speak Dating’language exchange programme launched in the year 2010 by language enthusiast Bénédicte Hennebo in partnership with Eton Institute, the largest language training centre in the UAE, has moved its venue to Eton Institute’s latest addition ‘The Coffee Lounge’. The Speak Dating event held once a month on Sundays brings together the multi-national and multi-lingual community of Dubai by matching their native language with an interested learner with a common interest, creating an opportunity for practicing each other’s languages.
Moaz Khan, Marketing manager at Eton Institute commented: “Since the launch of the Speak Dating event in the year 2010, it has attracted over 500 language enthusiasts and has been very well received by the diverse and multi-cultural people of Dubai. We were always keen to host the event at Eton Institute and the addition of our very own coffee lounge facilitated this move. Participants are sure to love the new venue which shall remain home to Speak Dating for years to come.”
Bénédicte Hennebo, linguist and founder of the Speak Dating concept, said: "Eton Institute has been one of the first partners of the programme when the idea was launched back in May 2010. This new development will enable us to work even more closely and efficiently. I am thrilled to welcome all the participants and look forward to the new exciting opportunities this new season will bring."
The Speak Dating event is hosted once a month to facilitate language matches and those who have found suitable language exchange partners are encouraged to continue the conversation in their own time. Participation at the event is completely free and attendees can avail discounts on courses offered at Eton Institute as well as on beverages available at Eton’s ‘The Coffee Lounge’.
