If you are using English as another language and want to practise talking with Native English Speakers, this is the place for you. Anyone of any faith or no faith is welcome. The club motto is: Have Fun With Friends – and we do!
For almost two decades the International Welcome Club has been offering the hand of friendship to people from anywhere – yes! Even Edinburgh!
Started as a Friday evening social gathering running from September through till the end of April, the club is an ideal way to key into a new city, a new culture and a new language. In the summer time the Friday activities are suspended in favour of away days visiting interesting places and keeping costs at a minimum. In other words we HAVE FUN WITH FRIENDS. Outings include trips to the island of Cumbrae, walks up hills and along canal banks and around lochs, visits to various shows and even a trip to the Highland Games.
Our summer CEILIDHS in the CRYPT are a great introduction to Scottish music, dancing and socialising without alcohol. There is always a light supper and a top rank accordionist who ‘calls’ the dances so everyone can join in.
A weekly English Language Conversation Corner is a popular event attracting between 30 and 40 people each week. This is normally held in the Church’s Crypt Cafe area. Native English speakers are the Hosts at each table and their Guests are people who want to practise using their English. Right now, we have moved this activity online (see above).
