Don’t mind if you are sociable or shy, in a conversation group you can find all kind of people. That is the perfect way to meet new friends and to practice your English as well.
The first thing that you need when you move in a foreign country is to meet people who don’t make you feel alone. Of course, it could be difficult if you can’t speak fluently the language of the country in which you are.
To help the new arrivals to integrate in the Irish society, Dublin offers a lot of conversation groups, mostly free, in which you could meet people and practice English in front of a cup of coffee or maybe a pint.
That is a very informal and easy way to meet new friends and, at the same time, learning English. I suggest you to have a look to the list of the groups available in the city at the moment, choose the place closest to you and try it!
