Scandinavian Coffee & Conversation

The Pan-Scandinavian conversation hour is held every other week at different locations in Bloomington, usually around 6 pm. This gathering is a great social opportunity for anyone who speaks a Scandinavian language (Norwegian, Swedish, Danish or Icelandic) to come together, establish connections and friendships, exchange ideas and information, practice speaking and understanding the language, and advance their oral proficiency. The Coffee Hour is student-run and meets at different locations depending on the organizer. Previous venues include IMU Starbucks and Anatolia Turkish Restaurant. The current location is the Runcible Spoon restaurant in Bloomington. For most current information and to subscribe to the Scandinavian Events list serve, please email Gergana May at
