Foreign Language Groups

The Commonwealth Club has hosted foreign language groups as an exclusive benefit for Club members for many years. In February 2015, the Club moved its headquarters to 555 Post Street, an interim location prior to settling in our future home at 110 The Embarcadero (estimated Fall 2016). Due to space constraints at our temporary location, language classes are now meeting off-site at spaces selected by the individual groups.

Commonwealth Club members generously volunteer their time and talents to host these foreign language discussion groups. Each group is managed independently by the leaders listed below. Please contact them directly to inquire for more details and to confirm meeting schedules and availability for your attendance.

Thank you for your interest in these volunteer-driven groups!
