Speakeasy. English conversation.


Talking about leisure, hobbies or hot topics in your language learning, for your oral expression, guarantees progress!

Speakeasy sessions are conducted in groups limited to 8 people. They are led by a native speaker of the language selected with whom you can talk about various subjects.
Help with grammar, vocabulary and expressions is given at the end of the session.
Speakeasy sessions are aimed at a public of intermediate (B1/B2) to advanced (B2/C1) level. The sessions take place in The Speakeasy room (near the Language Resource Center).
Speakeasy is framed into a continuing training system supervised by the Human Resources department – Continuing Training.


« Speakeasy prompts me to converse from a different theme every week. The professor allows me to enrich my vocabulary around these themes and the participants contribute by bringing their own experience.

It is a good way to develop your English while interacting with colleagues that you don’t meet on regular basis or have never met.« 

Françoise F. (France), HEC Staff Member.
