Thank you for visiting the ESL Conversation Club. We are Esther & Lee and we're the organizers.
Chicago is full of potential friends and potential fun experiences, but it can be tough to meet people outside of your circle of friends, especially if English is not your first language. Most members of this group are people who want to exercise their spoken English in a fun, relaxed setting. If you are someone who wants to practice your English more but doesn't often have the chance to do so, we hope you'll join us for a meetup! We have casual conversation in order to help people learn English. We’re not in a classroom with lessons or textbooks. Everyone here speaks English slowly and clearly. If someone says something you do not understand, feel free to ask him or her to say it again. We are a patient group, so English-learners of all levels are welcome!
Please have a clear picture of your face with your profile – We require this for the overall safety of the group. Also, we don’t allow members to offer paid services (including English tutoring, English classes, etc.) to other members. Please understand that “NO SOLICITING” is a strict policy of ours. We also request that you live in Chicago. Unfortunately we don’t have any web-based meetings for people living outside Chicago. We only have meetings that are face-to-face, and in-person. Most of our meetings are in downtown Chicago and we have very, very few meetings in the suburbs. Thank you for understanding!
