This program is designed to offer new English-speaking residents a place to feel safe using their new language and to offer them a place to be a community among friends. It is very important to note that these groups are not intended to usurp any English as a Second Language classes (ESL) in the area: in fact, they are designed to work in tandem by offering a place and a chance for ESL students to practice what they are learning. Classes run continuously. The times run from 45 minutes to 1.5 hours, with the less fluent classes having the least time. There are generally 6 students in each group, an ideal number for lively discussion.
Conversation Circles will begin later this month. Download flyers here for more information on dates, times, and locations:
