About ESIA

Welcome all to the new English Speakers in Action website. Hopefully you will find lots of interesting and useful information here about ESIA and about living in Hermosillo.


This site is aimed at both members of ESIA and at anyone considering a move to Hermosillo (or already here) and searching for like-minded people and the inside info on Mexican life. Although ESIA has been around for more than 15 years, this is a new website and we will be adding more and more information in the next few months. If you have any questions, suggestions or information you would really like to see on the site, please email us on esiahermosillo [at] yahoo [dot] com – we’re always looking for ways to improve the site.


You can follow links to ESIA’s Calendar of Events, useful websites, and pages with general information about ESIA and its activities. Send through any links you think should be included in the website!


For members of ESIA there are some additional pages with information intended only for you, including contact details for all current members. You will be provided with a password to access these pages at the monthly meetings or by email. If you have not received the password or have forgotten it, please email us and we will send it to you.


English Speakers in Action began in 1992 with the purpose of making foreigners living in Hermosillo feel welcome in Mexico and make their stay a lot more interesting by providing a means to make new friends. ESIA members are of many different nationalities, sharing a language in common. Some members of the group have been in Mexico for more than 30 years.

The group meets the second Thursday of each month September through June. We have an active social calendar, including Cooking Classes, Playgroup, Scrapbooking get-togethers, Ladies’ Night Out and seasonal events such as Halloween, Christmas and Easter parties. ESIA members are a great source of information on living in Hermosillo and often become lifelong friends.
