English Discussion Groups

Small group discussions for learning and practicing conversational English and exploring American culture.

This is a free class, so just come and practice your English!

About the Class...

We believe the best way to learn English is to speak it as much as possible! Therefore, we place you into small groups where you have the chance to have more practice. With each topic we teach you new vocabulary, phrases, and idioms. And we try to have thought provoking discussion questions to challenge you to express your thoughts in English. Our tutors will help you with pronunciation, but mostly they are there as friends. We try to invite you to our homes for special events, holiday celebrations and other fun things throughout the year. Here are a few pictures of our past classes:
