Changes to the ESL Conversation Circle in January

There are exciting changes coming to the ESL conversation circle in 2019!  The circle will have a new home in the Academic Success Centre, Room N266 in North Campus.  The new coaches will be called peer communicators, and will continue to offer a variety of interesting conversation activities. Because there are several peer communicators, students will have the opportunity to practice English with different English speakers.

The ESL Conversation Circle has been a program in the library for over nine years.  Soon after it started, we added the Writing Circle and the ESL Reading Circle.  Many library staff have been coaches over the years and we would like to thank them for all their hard work, dedication and enthusiasm.  Helping students learn English has been a very rewarding and special experience for us.

While we are sad to see the circle leave the library, we are really excited by the new energy that the peer communicators will bring to this program.

We will have more details about schedules, how to participate, etc., in January.  

ESL Conversation Circle End-of-semester break
