Walking into the second floor of the B.Hive cafe in Hamra, your ears might be drawn to the pair communicating in German to your right, the trio sharing a laugh in Italian in the corner or the group at the table huddled in pairs communicating in Arabic, Spanish and English. These were among the various languages spoken and taught Wednesday during Let's Talk Language's language exchange."Being a polyglot is important because with the internet and everything being so interconnected, learning another language brings you closer to the world and your surroundings," Let's Talk Language's country coordinator Farah al-Zarkout told the Daily Star.She described the exchange as a "social event" that provides a platform for learning about new languages and cultures while also meeting new people.For LL5,000 ($3.33) individuals can spend two hours exploring a variety of languages at a coffee shop on Hamra Street.
