BorgWarner West (unless otherwise stated)

Learn and practice English through casual conversation. Light refreshments will be served. All ages are welcome!

Goals of these meetings:

  1. To offer a relaxed setting to converse in English and gain comfort in speaking and oral communication
  2. To help participants seek and find resources at the Library and in  the community
  3. To share information about the Tompkins County Public Library, Ithaca and surrounding community which will enrich the language and cultural experiences of participants

These meetings will be informal. There is no homework or assignments. If you are unable to attend one week, that is O.K. Join us when you can!

If you feel that you need any assistance with your speaking or understanding of English, then please join us! If you would simply like to get involved but already have good English language skills, please feel welcome to join as well.

Registration is NOT required. Drop in and talk a while.
