Every Friday from 6:30 to 8:30 pm, the Charla is a weekly discussion group for students, speakers and practicioners of English. Each week a group of Mexicans, Casa guests, internationals living in Mexico City, and others gather to discuss social and cultural issues in English. It is not an English class, but rather an informal and friendly discussion group. The group is free and open to everyone, regardless of proficiency level in English. Your 10 peso cooperation helps us provide coffee, tea and cookies for the event.
