Conversation Café

Conversation Cafes are free community events that encourage casual, lighthearted conversation among Manchester residents. By bringing immigrant and non-immigrant community members together, these “Cafes” provide a friendly space for New Americans to practice their English skills while also creating a unique opportunity for everyone to learn, network, and develop new friendship. There’s often delicious food involved, too!


We believe these interactions are crucial to breaking down barriers and building trust and respect across our community.

Conversation Cafes are hosted in partnership with English for New Americans (ENA) and they are held in different locations throughout the city. If you have an idea for a future Conversation Cafe theme or venue, please let us know!
