English Conversation Groups
English Conversation Groups are hosted throughout the year by dedicated Education Services volunteers. English Conversation Groups provide an online space for students to participate in community building and English language learning. The conversation groups are available to current and waitlisted students. The conversation groups offer students the opportunity to practice their English-speaking skills outside of the formal classroom setting, and outside of scheduled class time.
