Do you speak English as a second language? Want to practise and learn more English in a supportive group? Then our conversation groups could be for you.

Diverse group of people talking

Our conversation groups

The groups aim to assist adults who already possess an Intermediate level of English or above. By engaging in discussions, sharing ideas, and participating in group activities, we strive to enhance your confidence in spoken English.

If you are uncertain about your English proficiency level, you can take advantage of a free online English test that will provide you with an approximate assessment.
