What we're about

Born in another country? Visiting or working in the New York City area?

Let's practice your English!

Unlike an ESL class, here we discuss interesting topics, socialize, laugh, and learn in an easy, effortless way.

No pressure, just practice!

The atmosphere is relaxed. We meet in a public place and enjoy tea or coffee and snacks. Friends are welcome!

We meet on weeknights, weekends, and in the daytime. Join us! You will enjoy yourself as you improve your English conversation skills and learn about American culture and idiom.

Please join us!

We look forward to meeting you. And helping you to practice your English!
