Hangout in English!

Do you wish you could practice English in a fun, natural setting?  Why not  “Hangout in English!” with The Boston School?

Where we meet…

On the first Monday and the third Thursday of the month, we meet for an informal dinner or drinks in Zurich. Some recent places we’ve gone to are b.good and The Oliver Twist Pub in the Niederdorf, Restaurant Commihalle for their Lindy Hop dance class night near Central, and Paddy Reilly’s Irish Pub near Paradeplatz.

Who comes…

Each week is a nice surprise – people sign up usually 2-7 days in advance.  I have met people who are Swiss with dual nationalities, others who have spent time abroad learning English and many others from all corners of the world. 

We can travel without leaving Zurich by meeting newcomers not yet able to speak German.  They include university students and professionals from Sweden, China, Uruguay, Spain, Germany, Canada, Australia, England and the USA.

This gives a chance for local Swiss to share stories and pass on practical advice.  But mostly?  We just get to know each other.

To join us…

 There are two ways to join us. Firstly, if you are a member of or wish to be a member of the meetup community: www.meetup.com.  You can then request to become a member of either  “Hangout in English!” or “Aargau – Hangout in English” or both!

Something new: In-Company Hangout in English!

To assist employees who may not have the time to commit to homework or attend class on a weekly basis but nevertheless would like to practice their English skills, The Boston School is offering an In-Company Hangout in English!

Although it is no substitute for a long-term course, employees will appreciate the chance to speak English in their canteen or break room during a sesson of Hangout in English!

Cost for the company is CHF 120.00/hour.  This can be reduced in price when employees agree to pay a nominal fee of CHF 10.00 each time they attend.
