Table Talk

Ever since the days of prehistoric man, words have been bandied about over broken bread, with the cave-dweller’s friendly “Ugh” slowly giving way to talk of love, current affairs, politics or simply what we did today. If you’ve ever had a hankering to bring something new to the table — say, another language — then members of DU’s University College Modern Language faculty have the perfect soiree for you.

A Taste of Language pairs a spread of international bites with thirty-minute lessons in a cornucopia of tongues, from everyday French and Spanish to the über-hip tones of Chinese and Arabic. Meet up tonight between 6 and 8 p.m. in Sturm Hall, 2200 East Asbury Avenue, on the University of Denver campus. The program, aimed at snagging fall students, is free, but reservations are required; make yours by August 28 at 303-871-3155 or www.universitycollege.du.edu.
Wed., Aug. 29, 6-8 p.m.

KEEP WESTWORD FREE... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Susan Froyd started writing for Westword as the "Thrills" editor in 1992 and never quite left the fold. These days she still freelances for the paper in addition to walking her dogs, enjoying cheap ethnic food and reading voraciously. Sometimes she writes poetry.
