Feel at home in any city.
SPEAK contributes to inclusive cities where everyone feels at home and where diversity is championed.
What we’re all about.
At SPEAK we bring together newcomers and locals living in the same city through community-led language groups and cultural exchange events. Through these experiences participants learn from each other, explore common interests and make new friends, breaking down barriers and tackling prejudice in their cities along the way.
Breaking the isolation barrier in 12 sessions.
