Are you a movie lover? Do you enjoy speaking other languages?

On the occasion of the European Day of Languages, the Language Tandem Programme is collaborating with the CERN CinéClub to offer you the possibility of watching a series of movies that share the common theme of communication.


Learning a language is like diving into another Universe. Movies can take us visually into other Universes.

Just like watching a movie, learning a new language takes us on an adventure, a discovery of something new. It can bring us new ways of looking at life; it can broaden our horizons.

The aim of this collaboration between the CinéClub and the Language Tandem Programme is to take you on this journey of discovery and we hope you will join us.

The series of movies, which started on 2 September, ends with an aperitif on 30 September where we can all get together. Please see the list of movies here:

  • 9 September: Italian for beginners  (in Danish and Italian, with English subtitles)
  • 16 September: Spanglish (in English and Spanish, with French subtitles)
  • 23 September: The Interpreter (in English, with French subtitles)
  • 30 September: Apéro & Lost in Translation (in English, with French subtitles)

The screenings all start at 8 p.m. in the Council Chamber (503-1-001).

We hope you will enjoy the theme of this series of movies and would love to meet you on 30 September for an aperitif. The aperitif will start at 7 p.m. and we kindly ask you to inform us if you plan to attend by completing the Doodle.
