Q – Are the events free?
A – Yes, they are free.

Q – Do I have to pay anything to attend the meetings?
A – No, as stated above, the entrance is free.

Q – Do I have to register somewhere or tell somebody that I’ll come?
A – No. There aren’t any lists, just come.

Q – It’s my first time, what should I do?
A – You should come and say that it’s your first time to one of the organizers that are at the entrance. They will explain you how the meeting works.

Q – When are the meetings?
A – We’ve got different meetings several days a week, please check our schedule. The most important one, the official MoscowLEM meeting is on Sundays from 18.00h.

Q – Do I have to buy a drink to attend a meeting?
A – No, you don’t have to… but consider doing it. Imagine three hundred people going to a bar and not drinking, the meeting would not last long as the bar would kick us out. One drink is around 200rub and we think it’s a fair amount for an evening of language practice with natives.

Q – Where are the meetings?
A – Each event we organize has its own name, and its specific location. Therefore we help people understand that events are not the same by separating the venues. To know where will be the meeting you want to attend, you should check the schedule or the event itself. We update this constantly, so please make sure you subscribe or join our mailing list to keep up to date.

Q – How do I get to the meetings?
A – Each event’s description has specific instructions on how to get there from a metro station. We include this as some foreigners need an easier explanation to get there. We will not give a phone number to tell you how to get there nor we will come and collect you from any point of the city.

Q – How do I subscribe to get notified about new upcoming meetings?
A – On Facebook, go to this page: https://www.facebook.com/RatPackEvents/events and click on the button “Subscribe” and you’ll be subscribing to the events we organize in Moscow.

Q – How do I join the mailing list?
A – Soon.

Q – Where can I find you in Social Networks?
