About the ESC

How did it all start?

The ESC started in the mid 1970’s in Strasbourg, with regular coffee mornings and other social events centred on the US Consulate, which was not the “fortress” it is today. The first members were often expat wives seeking friendship and companionship in what can be a very stressful endeavour – coming to live in a foreign country. French friends were then introduced to the circle and, from these origins, the ESC has grown.

The ESC provides more than just socialising.

For some it can be a lifeline, providing contact with other English speakers and potential friends.
