Let’s Pub

Hello everyone!

On the 29th January we will be hosting a pub welcoming the new exchange students and of course our old student back to Linköping! The pub will be held in Gasquen, Kårallen in the afternoon.

For the first time in our history the EAA will host a pub welcoming the new exchange students and of course our old student back to Linköping.

Held in the great Gasquen in Kårallen, we will open up the doors for all of you and we offer tasty food, a wide range of beer at affordable prices and some snacks. The first 80 guests who arrive will get the food for free, and after that it costs 30 SEK. So make sure to be there on time!

During the pub you can ask all the questions you’ve ever been wondering about to the Board and we’ll promise to try and answer them. There will also be an opportunity to ask about the spectacular member sweethers. Any questions? Please ask us during the pub! ( ^_^)b

So whether you’re a member or not doesn’t matter this night, just come and join us in Gasquen and have a good time!

We’ll see you there!

Language Buddy

Is two evenings a week simply not enough for you or have you had problems timing it so that people who speak your language attend the Conversation Corner?

EAA will be holding a Language buddy program during the semester to help people who wants to learn their language better find someone to have a more comprehensive exchange in experiences with. Be it Chineses, Swedish, English, Korean or Japanese.

If your interested please fill out the form below.

Time: October 19th, 12 o’clock

Let’s Cinnamonrolls Day!

The annual cinnamonrolls day is coming up and nobody likes cinnamonrolls more than us at the East Asian Association! Therefor we will treat those who attends Conversation corner October 2nd to this fine traditional swedish pastry. There is a limited number of rolls so dont be late!

“In Sweden, the country of its presumed origin, the cinnamon roll takes the name of kanelbulle (literally: “cinnamon bun”), and October 4 has more recently started to be promoted as “kanelbullens dag” (Cinnamon Roll Day).[3][4] Swedish kanelbulle dough typically also contains cardamom (powder or buds), giving it a distinctive flavour. A German variety originating in Hamburg and its surroundings is the Franzbrötchen, a cinnamon pastry inspired by the non-cinnamon French croissant.” – Wikipedia
