I just changed the group name. Our groups in language exchange have grown considerably and it's time for us to specialize them further regarding the events and service provided. For this one, I will continue with all the free language exchange service as well as some English learning related events, but provide more activities, festivals, parties, and social events. There will be quite a few world-culture festivals during the summer in Toronto so don't miss out!
Events hosted by me will continue to be free. (If there are good events where other hosts charge a minimal fee (e.g., $5-10), I may permit their posting or promotions here to add variety and options or as sharing of information/opportunities to this group.)
Hopefully you can stay with this group and keep the links with friends you meet here. You do NOT need to be of Asian origin to be a group member here. Local Torontonians and international friends/visitors are more than welcome to join us. As long as you are interested in attending some of the events posted here, you would be welcome to stick around. (OK to make your decision later.) In fact I would like this group to be able to reach out to all other international/ethnic communities and connect to the mainstream community. (And thus the original "international language exchange" group provides a good foundation for that...)
Welcome to join some/all of the aforementioned groups to continue receiving our free serves, stay connected to your friends, and contribute to the Toronto international community by simply participating and be friendly and upbeat;)
FYI: I am moving the original "ILX" group name to another city in Europe as part of an effort to establish a chain of free language exchange service & "international friends" communities worldwide.
