What we're about

Do you wish you could practice English in a fun, natural setting? Why not "Hangout in English!" with a professional English teacher from The Boston School?

When and where we meet...

On the first Monday and the third Thursday of the month, we meet for an informal dinner or drinks in Zurich. Every few months or so we change our venues. Lately we have been meeting at Lion Club (https://thelion.ch/) on our Monday nights and for our Thursday evening event at b.good in Oerlikon. It's really close to the Oerlikon train station and is a casual restaurant that offers vegan, vegetarian as well as meat burgers in a quiet setting.

Who comes...

Each week is a nice surprise. I have met people who are Swiss with dual nationalities, others who have spent time abroad learning English and many others from all corners of the world.

We can travel without leaving Zurich by meeting newcomers not yet able to speak German. They include university students and professionals from Peru, Russia, Italy, France, and Germany.

This gives a chance for local Swiss to share stories and pass on practical advice. But mostly? We just get to know each other.

Recent changes...

We charge CHF 5.00 per person and is collected in cash when you attend. This is to discourage no-shows and also to help towards the host's own personal costs.
