Are you a newcomer Canadian who wants to improve their spoken English? Join us for English Corner, a conversational group for newcomer Canadians. There is no cost, and no registration is necessary – just drop in and check it out! English Corner happens at our Crescent Beach location, 2916 McBride Ave, which is accessible by transit (#351) and has plenty of free, street-level parking. Sessions are held Wednesdays, 1-2:30 pm in the Media Room.
Under the direction of our experienced volunteers, Diana Wilkes and Elaine Biagioni, participants learn about one another and about Canadian culture and society through informal discussion of family, hobbies, customs, recreation, food, and much more! The format for English Corner is intimate and relaxed. Participants practice conversational skills while developing cultural competency and learning about other cultures. There is also an EC Book Club, led by Lynn McKay, where participants read a book in English, and come together to discuss it.
