Welcome to English Corner

An informal Conversational English Class given as a free community service.


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.

“I come to make new friends…”
