Our conversation cafe sessions are informal drop-ins to help people develop their language skills and practise their spoken English.

The sessions include discussions around topical subjects, as well as about life in Barnsley. We also have trips and days out in the summer!

All sessions are free and there is no need to book, just come along.  Everyone is welcome.
