English Corner allows newcomers to practice communicating in English, make new friends, and together find opportunities to contribute to the wellbeing of the community.
Each week in an English Corner, a small group comes together to discuss a meaningful topic with the help of a trained volunteer. These spaces provide a warm informal environment that encourages fellowship and the building of friendships. The program belongs to the participants, and together a group defines its own activities and plans its own social gatherings and service projects. We believe that effective communication of our thoughts and feelings is essential for leading a successful life in a new place.
