Conversational DC


Join us to speak Arabic in an immersive, free, social environment at The Green Zone, a Middle Eastern Cocktail Bar in Adams Morgan. The format is simple: show up, meet some new people, and have fun. No English allowed. Bringing a buddy is encouraged!

The event is upstairs, where we have our own bar (complete with an Arabic-speaking bartender). Around the room will be facilitators and listeners with stickers. Facilitators are fluent and/or native speakers that are there to keep the conversation going. Listeners are language-lovers that are just there to observe and absorb.

If the event is sold out, we will admit walk-ins after 6:30 pm until we’re at capacity. If you arrive after 6:30 pm with or without a ticket and the room is full, you’re welcome to hang out downstairs.

If you’re a native or fluent speaker that would like to help facilitate, send an email The Event Leader will get in touch with you.


What if I’m too scared to speak?

Totally understand. It’s nerve-wracking to put yourself out there and make mistakes. Fortunately, you’ll be surrounded by people making mistakes. To make it easier, bring a buddy. We will also have “listener” stickers for those who just want to absorb.

Do I have enough language experience to do this?

People that have zero language experience are still welcome to come. Maybe you’ll pick up a word or two.

Is the event free?

YES! But drinks are not. Happy hour is until 8 pm. Please purchase drinks from the upstairs bar.

Are drinks free?

No. Tip your bartender!

How do I know there will be good speakers there?

We make sure there are fluent speakers at each event. Contact if you’re interested in being a facilitator.

Will there be future events in other languages?

Yes! If you have a specific interest, email
