Course dinner

Being a university student in Portugal, you would most certainly be invited to participate in a class or course dinner. This is an event which allows people within a certain group to socialize outside of the otherwise formal school or class setting, having conversations, interacting and sharing experiences, while having a meal and drink at a cheaper group price.

In trying to create such a tradition at the Department of Languages, Literatures and Cultures (LLCU) of Queen’s University, past and present students of Beginning Portuguese have socialized and shared wonderful Portuguese meals at Minos Takeout and Dining or at the Portuguese Cultural Centre of Kingston.
