Welcome to the English-Speaking Community Website!

An association for English speakers in Strasbourg

Welcome to the English-Speaking Community (ESC).

The ESC is a network of English speakers of more than twenty different nationalities that offers a wide range of social, cultural and leisure activities in English. Whether you are quiet or outgoing, keen on literature or athletic, passionate about cultural events or just happy to share a drink, there will be something for you to enjoy and occasions to make friends.

Our calendar will give you an insight on what’s on in the coming months. Just keep an eye out and get in touch as some of our events are open to non-members as well. The ESC is a place where all English speakers are welcome to have fun.

We look forward to meeting you.

Whether you are new to the city or have lived in Strasbourg your whole life, if you would like the opportunity to attend our events, then please feel free to …
