Language Tables


Oldenborg Center at Pomona welcomes you to join its foreign-language lunch tables. Enjoy lunch and converse in foreign languages at tables mentored by native speakers.


When Pomona classes are in session, Monday through Friday, 12:00pm to 1:00pm.


  • 5C Students – swipe your mealcard at the door
  • 7C Faculty and Staff – sign in for lunch as a guest of Oldenborg
  • Community members may attend at Oldenborg’s discretion and incur a charge.
  • Oldenborg does not provide take-out.

Chinese, French, German, Japanese, Russian, and Spanish tables meet daily.

On Wednesdays, we also feature beginner tables in these six languages. Oldenborg requests that lunch guests honor its tradition of supporting foreign languages; those who wish to converse in English are respectfully asked to visit other college dining halls.

If there is a language you would like to practice that is not listed here, please contact the Oldenborg Center at 621-8018 or email Oldenborg.
