English Conversation Groups

Practice conversation with other English speakers. We pick a topic every week to prepare for the following week’s discussion. Conversation groups are led by instructors who are native speakers. Meet other students and practice new language skills. Each conversation group is one and a half hours. Every week is different!

Only $60 per person, per month or $25 drop in fee. Space is limited.  We offer free level assessments.

To keep the cost low, we need a minimum of three students per group or the sessions will be cancelled. Please register for the group you want to join, to help us with our planning.

Book: Born a Crime by Trevor Noah 

SOUTH AFRICA

Trevor Noah’s unlikely path from apartheid South Africa to the desk of The Daily Show began with a criminal act: his birth. Trevor was born to a white Swiss father and a black Xhosa mother as a time when such a union was punishable by five years in prison.
