Polyglots Team Monthly Chat (Americas) for June Postponed

Hello dear Polyglots!

This is just a small post to let you know that for this time only, June’s Monthly Chat for the Americas region originally scheduled for June 3rd has been postponed for June 10th instead, since the community has a lot of events going on this week! (shout out to our friends in the APAC region! And another to the collaborators in WCEU!)

Have a safe, productive week, and see you next Tuesday! <3
