English Conversation Circles

We know firsthand that language is one of the biggest barriers facing newcomers to Canada. That is why our priority is to help you overcome this barrier. There are many ways you can make quick progress in learning English. The secret can be summed up in three words: Practice, Practice, Practice. That’s right–you need a lot of practice and we can help!

At CultureLink, we provide you a safe and pleasant learning environment, along with great mentors to help you practice your English. We are the first agency that has implemented the “English Conversation Circle” as an informal way of learning English through networking. We offer various English practising programs for different clients to meet different needs.

If you have a fairly good grasp of English and need the opportunity to speak more, you can take advantage of the mentorship programs offered by the Community Connection Program, and also may benefit from the “Let’s Talk” conversation circles provided by the Library Settlement Partnership.

English classes are  provided to Hungarian Roma refugees through the Roma Settlement Services and Syrians through special job-related conversation circles.
