Leith Conversation Cafés


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 you language skills
- share stories, experiences and ideas
- develop new insights
- build friendships
- gain confidence
- practice your English
- learn about their local area
- and feel more at home in Leith.

We meet:

* Monday mornings: 10.30am to 12.00pm at Out Of The Blue Drill Hall Café, 30 - 38 Dalmeny Street, Edinburgh EH6 8R

* Monday evenings: 7.30pm to 9.00pm at Yellow Bench, 31 Crighton Place, Leith Walk, Edinburgh, EH7 4N

* Sunday afternoons: 4.00pm to 5.30pm at Sketchy Beats Café, 208 Great Junction Street, Edinburgh, EH6 5LW

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.
