French Edinburgh


  • 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!
