Somewhere to practice english (Lima)

Hi

I am English from the UK. My partner's sister's husband has been taking English lessons for his job (he is Peruvian) as he plans to move to Canada. He is good with grammar etc but he lacks the ability to speak as he has no confidence and is quite shy.

Can anyone recommend a place in Lima (he lives in Ate Vitarte) where he can go on the weekend as he currently works in La Oroya. His wife has asked that I speak with him which I am happy to do but every time I see him he is with his wife and children and is far too embarrassed to speak especially when he is being pushed to do so.

I would possibly like to meet with people who want to speak English (or who are Canadian, American or British) and go for coffee etc and make him feel comfortable.

Does anyone have any ideas? I will also tag along but I think the answer is to introduce him to English speaking people so he has no choice but to speak the language.
