English conversation opportunities


These are not Friends International activities, but some that we recommend and trust.

QUEST English conversation hour

QUEST English Conversation Hour is just that: an opportunity for international visitors, students, professionals etc to practice English, in a friendly and informative environment. All questions welcome, even the difficult ones, big or small! Includes coffee, tea etc and cakes (lots!), informal conversation, discussions in small groups, activities, presentations, on a broad range of subjects, applicable to everyday life and more… A good starting point for exploring life and culture in the UK, as well as learning a bit about Christianity.

Time: once every two weeks, on Thursdays, at 6pm until 7.15pm (18.00 – 19.15)
