Do you want to improve your conversational English and meet new friends? Then the English Conversation Circles (ECC) is the right place for you.  

ECC provides a safe space for undergraduate and graduate English Language Learners (ELL) to practice conversational English with friendly staff and students. This program offers students a place to make new friends and reconnect with old ones. Our facilitators create an environment to share resources for newcomers to Canada and the UWaterloo community, and they encourage and embrace intercultural discussions. 

The program is a dedicated space for open discussions about Canada, Canadians and the international community, with unique scenario-based activities to help with practicing your everyday spoken English. ECC meets twice per week for an hour, in a 6-week period. Sessions are led virtually by two full-time staff members. 

The Spring 2022 English Conversation Circles will have both in-person and online options. The program runs from June 1 through July 15, 2022 on Wednesdays from 3:00 - 4:00 p.m. (in-person) and Fridays from 9:30 - 10:30 a.m. (online).
