English conversation clubs

English Conversation Clubs

Would you like to be able to speak English with more confidence? Then why not join an English Conversation club.

Run by trained volunteers, English Conversation Clubs allow you to practise speaking English in an informal, relaxed environment. The clubs are free and take place on different days and in different venues across the borough. You will make friends and get the opportunity to discuss lots of different topics. Each week you will find that you can express yourself better in English. There is no need to book in advance, you can just drop in.
