TU Delft Library

Opening Language Library & language workshops

1 October 2014

TU Delft Library’s Language Library is renewed! The collection now contains more than 150 translated books of Dutch literature. It has over 35 different languages, ranging from Chinese to Macedonian and Greek to Russian.

Event date: 1 Oct 2014 17:00 to 19:00
Location: Hive, TU Delft Library

It can help everybody of TU Delft to practice reading in the language they want to learn. So it can help you to improve your Dutch, learn a new language or familiarize yourself with the Dutch literature and the particularities of Dutch culture. To learn more about it, come by at the opening of the Language Library!

 (The new Language Library of TU Delft is inspired by the concept of the Schiphol Library, which helped this project of TU Delft students.)

Opening Language Library

Come by at the Hive to have a look at the beautiful collection of books and for a social drink.

Tandem Delft


The Tandem Delft project is based on the idea that the best way to learn a language, is to practice it. This project provides a platform for students and other interested people within Delft; to meet with native speakers from all around to put their knowledge into practice; improve their skills and in return teach someone else their own native language.
