Fáilte Isteach conversational English classes

We run free conversational English classes for people from new communities through our Fáilte Isteach project - both general classes and classes specifically for Ukrainian refugees.

Fáilte means welcome and that is the spirit of Fáilte Isteach - with classes taking place in a friendly small group, cafe-style setting over a cuppa.

This work is resourced by our SICAP programme and the International Protection Integration Fund.
