Nagoya international English speaking Community for expat and locals "English Cochin"


   Welcome to the international English speaking Community for expat and locals “English Cochin”! This is a group for people who want meet people and to talk about various topics in English in a relaxed environment. We hold a regular meeting every Saturday night near Nagoya Station for 15 years. In each meeting, we have not only Japanese but also people from around the world to learn other culture and make friends through English. We welcome everyone regardless of their age or country. If you are a foreigner who want to improve English skill, I think this group helps you because some of regular members in this group can speak English well. If you visit Nagoya for sightseeing, you can get useful information from locals and you can make a lot of local friends.
