Are you a newcomer to Canada or been here a while and want to improve your English conversation skills? Are you finding it hard to practice your English and just want an opportunity to do so? Did you participate in the Share’s English Practice Groups (EPG) all around the Tri-Cities but haven’t found anything else yet? Or do you have a family member or friend that wants an opportunity to speak in English a bit more? Well, that’s where we can help!
The Coquitlam Public Library has been offering Intermediate and Advanced EPG sessions since October and they have been very successful. We meet weekly on Zoom and break into smaller groups to have a conversation about a particular topic. We have multiple facilitators who run each group and we have enjoyed getting to know each other. It’s a safe and welcome space, and we encourage and support our participants.
You do need to have a computer, smart phone or tablet to be able to log into Zoom and it would help if you have a camera and microphone attached to your device. A camera isn’t a requirement but a microphone is.
Our sessions are over for the fall. However, we start again on January 11th and 12th and run until the end of March. When you register for one day, it automatically registers you for the balance of the sessions. We run Intermediate sessions on Monday afternoons at 1:30 pm to 3:00 pm and Advanced sessions on Tuesday mornings at 10:30 am to 12:00 pm.
A few days before each session, you will receive an email with the Zoom log in information, as well as a list of the questions we will be discussing.
Space is limited for each session, so be sure to register ahead of time. Register for INTERMEDIATE SESSIONS HERE or ADVANCE SESSIONS HERE.
If you have any questions on how this works, please feel free to contact Ann.
