Founder

Welcome to the #LingosFam!

Hi, Iโ€™m Vanessa, the founder of Sydney Lingos.

I started this community in 2017 when I moved to Sydney after some time abroad in France, and I was looking for a way to connect with others through language practise.

Like you, I know what itโ€™s like to navigate life in a foreign country, and just how daunting it can be at times to learn a new language and meet new people.

Growing up half Chinese-Malaysian and half Australian, as well as learning multiple languages over the years, I've spent most of my life bridging gaps across cultures.

My goal here at Sydney Lingos is to help international and local language learners connect, make friends, embrace other cultures and improve fluency!

We have a fantastic community of over 10,000 friendly, open-minded and benevolent members. Many of whom will help you practise your target language(s) as well as teach you about their cultures, countries and life in general.

I hope you will share the same with them.

See you soon!

DON'T JUST TAKE OUR WORD FOR IT

Sydney Lingos

I attend the Wednesday meetup as much as possible, and I have to say that without fail, this wonderful gathering of awesome people never fails to make me smile and lift my spirits.

The atmosphere is intoxicating and the people are the most friendly, supportive and encouraging and more than one could ever hope for in regards to language learning as well as cultural learning. Learning about life in general as well!

There are no words that I could express to convey my gratitude to this meetup and the people involved. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart xoxo

It was such a good place to meet friends from different countries: Korea, Colombia, Japan, US.

I had a fabulous time tonight at Cheers Bar with new friends. It's good for chatting about hobbies, exchanging ideas and listening to others sharing the funniest things that happened on the other side of the world.

Will come back again! Hope to meet you guys next time ๐Ÿ˜

Having been to most of the regular events in Sydney, I can honestly say that Sydney Lingos is my favourite by far.

It feels like a family ready to adopt you. Everyone's open to start a conversation and listen to your story. It's a great way to get information and meet wonderful people in general.

Some of these guys have become my very good friends and together we organise BBQs and house parties. It feels good to know that every week I can see them again!
