English Conversation Circles
The English Conversation Circles is an interactive online program for undergraduate and graduate students who are looking to talk with other students and build confidence in their English conversation skills.
The goals of the program are to help build students' vocabulary and ability to converse in casual conversation, to familiarize them with Canadian content that is not part of a structured ESL program, and to work on discussing topics that are relevant to them.
The program is facilitated by our friendly writing advisors and runs for six weeks through Microsoft Teams. Students are assigned to small groups, and will meet virtually once a week over the six-week period for facilitated discussions on different topics related to life in Canada.
The Fall 2020 program runs September 14 – October 30. To register for one of the English Conversation Circle sessions, please send an email to email@example.com.
Please note that English Conversation Circles do not run during fall reading week (October 12 - 16).
