If you’re looking for a quick and easy way to get some English practice, why not try one of the language exchange meet ups organised in Budapest? There are several to choose form, but going to the Drinks and English Pest is one of the most popular ones.
This conversation club is a meet up organised in Budapest by a local language school with the aim of popularising English and uniting like-minded language learners. It’s aimed mostly at young professionals or internationals who are invited to attend the meet ups to get conversation practice or do some general networking.
The Drinks and English meetups take place in Budapest, on the Pest side of town. Since this is a very informal event with a strong emphasis on simply meeting other people who speak English, it starts in a bar in the 9th district. You can find the meetups gathering in Vinopiano – a local wine bar, or if you’re not much of a wine drinker, you have the option of visiting Eleszto, a bar focused on serving local craft beers and joining the event.
The Drinks and English Pest event takes place every second and fourth Tuesday in a month. The meetup has been organised since 2013 and shows no evidence of stopping in the near future.
Organised by a language school with a stable presence of professional English teachers means that this is a great way of improving your language skills while having fun. You can get free conversation practice and meet other young internationals in a casual and relaxed environment. You only have to pay for your own drinks but are rewarded by spending some time with other English speakers and enjoying a few excellent local drinks.
