SMECは、神戸のJR元町駅スグに新しくオープンした英会話カフェです。
2011年に岡本でスタートし、2015年11月から神戸元町の"Bar S"alu (バルザル)をお借りして
毎週土曜日にだけオープンしています。

あなたは、最近英会話を楽しめる友達と出会いましたか?
英会話を楽しむことは、新しい出会いを楽しむことです。
SMECは、週末のパーティーで友人とビールを楽しむように、土曜の朝に美味しい挽きたてのコーヒーを片手に、英会話と新しい友達との出会いを同時に楽しむことが出来る唯一のカフェです。

フリートークを主に、レベル分けなしで自由に会話を楽しんでいただけます。

​"English , your passport to tomorrow."
この言葉のように、英語を話すことは、素晴らしい明日への手段です。
英語を話すことが目的ではありません。その場に居る人たちと出会い、話すことを繰り返す日々に価値があると信じています。​

土曜の朝は、一人で居るより、英語を話せる友だちと居る方がずっと楽しい。
人々がSMECに集う理由はそこにあります。20代30代の社会人の方に多くご利用頂いています。
あなたと一緒に、楽しい土曜の時間を過ごせることを楽しみにしています。ぜひ、ご参加ください。
