Who and Where We Are

The English Speaking Club of Malaga (ESCM) is a social club that was founded in 1971 by nine friends of various nationalities. This circle of friends grew over the years and continues to attract interest from expatriates and Spaniards who want to maintain and improve their English. The focus of the club is to get to know and understand other cultures, to learn and exchange Spanish and English languages, and to share social relationships in a friendly atmosphere. Prospective members may come to club meetings three times. On further visits, they are expected to become a member and pay the €10 yearly membership fee.  

Club meetings are from October to June twice a week, on Tuesdays and Fridays. Tuesday meetings are held in English. Friday meetings are a mix of English and Spanish.
  • Tuesdays 6 to 8 PM (18-20H) at Bodega Bar El Pimpi, Sala Antonio Gala, Calle Granada, 62, Malaga
  • Fridays 6:30 to 8:30 PM (1830-2030H) at Hotel Ilunion, Paseo Maritimo Antonio Machado, 10, Malaga

We hope to see you!
