English Conversation Group
The English Conversation Group for newcomers meets 3 mornings per week with the goal of providing opportunity for people of from various linguistic backgrounds to come together in an informal environment where they are comfortable speaking English with other people in their community. We talk about anything, as long as it is in English! Sometimes speakers are brought it to talk about specific topics, such as health, stress reduction, etc, and after the presentation the participants talk about what they learned or perhaps what they did not fully understand.
Services are available by appointment for eligible newcomers including those who have recently gained Canadian citizenship, permanent residents, refugees and refugee claimants.
