English Conversation Group

Fireplace room- Community Center Building

Join this group to talk with our volunteers, Grandma Gloria and Uncle Warren!

Come to the Fireplace Room to meet with meet new friends, share stories in English and listen to others’ stories. Enjoy coffee or tea and treats. Just come, listen and talk in English! It’s FREE! All residents are welcome, even those who already speak English.

For the next 13 weeks, each session of the group will have a foundational focus that one can prepare mentally or come equipped with applicable vocabulary or phrases. No preparation is required and the group may stray from the topic; yet, this is a wonderful way to incorporate new words, expand your knowledge of phrases and grammar, as well as measure how far you have improved on the topic!
