Conversation

  • We’ll be downstairs in the basement
  • We host three friendly conversation groups in three different local cafes every week. Our conversations are an opportunity for people who have moved here from overseas to:

    • meet others you might not usually meet

    • expand your language skills

    • share stories, experiences and ideas

    • develop new insights

    • build friendships

    • gain confidence

    • learn about your local area

    • and feel more at home in Leith.

    The conversation hosts have a wide knowledge of support agencies, information services and local activities that they can share with participants when it is helpful. And three times a month we also invite workers from other organisations to join in our conversations and to share information with the group.

    The conversations are gently structured so that everyone has a chance to speak and be heard, however shy or confident you feel and no matter how many words of English you know.

    We look forward to welcoming you soon!

    NEW! Fabulously French mid-week get-together

    in the Café de la Poste (Southside)!

    A new friendly mid-week night-out in a different area of the city !

    We are very much looking forward to meeting new people, as well as the usual suspects!! And if you cannot come along exactly at 8pm... well, feel free to drop by any time afterwards!! (we're usually around until at least 11pm or thereabouts)

    The staff in the Café de la Poste are friendly - and French :) 

    I will be downstairs for the French&Wine, but will join for a drink afterwards.

    Looking forward to seeing you there!

    • Just listen! Or ask at the bar for the French group!
    • Practise your French and English over a drink in a small friendly international group. Just come whenever you can, from 7pm on Mondays.

      ATTENTION - THIS EVENT IS AN EXCHANGE, AND AS SUCH IT HAS TO BE SPLIT BETWEEN FRENCH AND ENGLISH EQUALLY, SO THAT NATIVE FRENCH SPEAKERS ALSO BENEFIT FROM IT.

      There is another French-only meetup every second Wednesday for those who prefer to speak French only. 

      Thank you in advance for your cooperation on this matter.
