Our language discussions are a wonderful opportunity to view the Phillips Collection and practice your language skills in a friendly and relaxed setting with the help of our native language facilitators. Both beginners and more experienced foreign language speakers are invited to join us. Experienced speakers will take part in the discussion and will be available to facilitate conversations, answer questions, and make you progress! We'll do our best to make you feel comfortable and have fun while meeting other Phillips Collection and ICDC members who share the same interest in foreign languages.

Are you a native speaker?
If you are a native speaker of the languages we are practicing this month, and would like to share your language with other club members, please e-mail us at Info@InternationalClubDC.com.

Please note that outside food is not allowed.
