Programme for the next few weeks – don’t miss out on all the fun!
There WILL be language classes each week from 7:45-8:30pm for those who wish, but unfortunately NO classes on 22nd February or 1st March due to a different activity schedule for those weeks.
February 22nd – Chinese New Year Themed Evening (the actual date was 16th February!)
March 1st *To be held at Foxy’s Cafe Penarth* – All Things Welsh Themed evening
March 8th – Chill Night
March 15th – AMA in Sao Tome – A Charity working in the Portuguese speaking island off West Africa
March 22nd – Themed Evening – St Patrick’s Day (Irish) Celebration (17th Actual Date)
March 24th – Cafe Trip to Swindon/Cheltenham/Bath? To be decided asap!
March 29th – Quiz Night & Why Easter?
* Please note that on the 1st March we’ll be holding the Cafe at the Foxy’s Cafe opposite the Penarth Station. The Cafe will provide us with a Welsh Cawl (soup) with bread & cheese for approx £5 per person, then you can buy your own drinks or cakes etc as required. so we’ll collect the soup money on the door as your entry fee on that evening! It should be a fab evening in a truly Welsh local Cafe! We’ll do a quiz there plus hopefully some music & have a go at our Welsh National Anthem too!
Then after March 29th, we have our Easter holiday break & the Cafe will then restart on Thursday April 19th.
We’re hoping to plan a weekend away then for the weekend of 27-29th April 2018. We’d like to confirm this asap so will need to know how many may wish to join us? We’re checking prices at the moment for possibly North Wales (Snowdonia, Caernarvon Castle, Port Meirion etc) , or Bath/Salisbury Cathedral & Stone Henge, or any other suggestions!
See you Thursday
Don’t forget we’re on Cafe International Penarth Facebook too, plus Instagram & Twitter @cafe_penarth
Welcome to the Cafe International – the Cafe provides a social hub where folks can relax, have fun and meet so many new friends as well as find support in so many ways.
We welcome students, au pairs and any internationals living or working locally – whether you are new to the UK/Wales or have been here for some time. For those who wish we provide a free English language class from 7:45 – 8:30pm each Thursday evening.
We meet every Thursday evening (in term time) from 7:30 – 10:30pm at:
The Tabs Centre
Vale of Glamorgan
A programme of weekly activities for the term can be found on the What’s On? page on this website and on the Cafe International Penarth Facebook page.
Check out this communal poem we all wrote at the Cafe recently – it’s amazing!!
Our International Cafe
Is friendship, warmth and above all fun
Is simply the best way of socialising
and therefore making new friends
sharing stories over a cup of tea
is a very nice place to meet various
and other-country friends; So I like ‘here’.
Its a home where home is away
a lovely atmosphere that makes me feel like home
Love people – listening to stories
talking to people, wonderful people
shared cultures and food
lovely place…lovely people
Nice to see people enjoying themselves
Playing table tennis etc; its a good place
for meeting new people and I like the cafe foods
that great british menu; a roast and a stew
Its great to meet people from so many cultures
and interact with many cultures all over the world,
the possibility of travelling in and out of wales
I’ve learnt to speak to people, not just for English,
its social skills too. I’m so appreciative of people who
manage this cafe. I am meeting ‘the Diff’erent people
I’ll always be grateful to the cafe they offer amazing
experiences to me and my students
Now I’m one foreigner amongst many
The naturalness of a multi-culture community
Interaction with internationals on a regular basis
a fun way to learn about different cultures
where lives can cross paths and folks can shake hands around the world
This ‘coffee’ is the convergence of civilisations
There are very few places where I could be myself
Church, home and here
Blessings and love to you all!!!
