BISM Conversation Café

Practice English! Learn American Culture! Make new friends!

Come enjoy coffee, tea, and conversation with American and international friends. Each week, we discuss a language topic related to life and culture in the U.S. and review common vocabulary and idioms used in conversational speech. American volunteers lead table discussion groups, allowing each person to participate in the conversation.
