Language Tables

Oldenborg Center at Pomona welcomes you to join its foreign-language tables. Converse in foreign languages at tables mentored by native and advanced speakers.

Fall 2021 Update

Beginning the week of September 27, most language tables will return to an in-person setting on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays. Mondays and Tuesdays will remain online.

We welcome 7C students, faculty, and staff to attend. Though the tables will take place in the Oldenborg dining hall they will not be scheduled during lunch time, and there won’t be any food allowed. 

Please review our FAQ for additional details.

A language-specific schedule is available below. To access the weekly schedule and Zoom links for our online tables, please visit the Oldenborg Language Table Sakai Calendar.

If there is a language you would like to practice that is not listed here, please email Oldenborg or call (909) 621-8018.
