Conversation Clubs

Experience the world at home

Practice in a Pressure Free Environment

The Best Way to Learn is with Others!

Our clubs help expatriates and their families feel more connected to their new community, providing a warm environment for forging bonds with our diverse region. 

Come Speak With Us!

Want to improve your French, Italian, Spanish and/or English skills? Do you like making friends and having fun? Then come visit our Conversation Clubs at Upstate International! Our Conversation Clubs offer an opportunity for speakers from different cultures to come together, practice the spoken language, and gain confidence in discussing different subjects. It is an excellent way to build language proficiency, as well as social and communication skills.

Each club emphasizes conversation rather than instruction. Conversation Clubs are open and free of cost for all UI members who want to enhance their conversation skills. No registration is required. Just show up and join the conversation!

Still not a member? Feel free to visit a class once before pursuing UI membership. After you’re a member, you may drop in whenever you like! If you have further questions, email us.


Want to Facilitate a Language Conversation? Conversation Club Facilitators help create opportunities for UI members to gain confidence by practicing their conversational skills. We welcome and appreciate all volunteer help! Sign Up
