Globe Conversation Group 

Globe Conversation Group happens both online and in person. Each group is led by a Globe volunteer and usually has no more than 10 people. We talk about anything and everything, from culture shock, manners, festivals to our views on freedom and love, for example. It is a fantastic way to share your own culture and values with others, learn about the British culture, as well as having fun together in a smaller setting. We currently run 5 groups during the week.
