Develop your communication skills and engage in thoughtful conversation from 3-5pm every Monday

Fresh Start is a project run by Together for Change, which seeks to offer social spaces to connect people who are new to our country together.

They have been running English Conversation Cafes at the Belgrade for the last 3 and a half years. We offer a space for people to gather together, practise their conversational English, develop confidence in their speaking, and make new friends here in Coventry.

Over 300 different people have joined our sessions over the past 3 years, and many have said how much their confidence has grown.

One young Sudanese man said “I started learning English in college, but I still thought that my English was very bad and I wouldn’t be understood. So having the chance to practise what I’d learned in college in these Conversation Cafes was very important, as I learned new words and, more importantly, realised that my English was better than I thought.” He has now got a job working for Amazon.

Please be assured that the Conversation Cafés are still going ahead during lockdown.
