Welcome! We're English Conversation group meeting near Lougheed skytrain station. Anyone who wants to practice their English or help others learn can come and join as long as you're respectful to other people.
We meet at a cafe, and they allow us to meet and reserve one huge table for us (more tables can be used as they are available), so we ask that each person buys at least one drink of dessert as they come in.
We're very casual with minimal structure. Just find a seat and join us, introduce yourself and start talking. We'll have some guiding questions and topics for conversation on the table as well if people want to use them.
If you're an advanced or fluent English speaker, please encourage other English learners to speak more rather than you dominating the conversation. We welcome English speakers in order to help and empower English learners.
We especially welcome those who are relatively new to Canada. We'd like to help you find good friends and support of community here in Canada so your transition into Canada will be easier and smooth.
Come, join us! ^_^
*Please be extra careful about meeting people one on one outside of Meet-up contexts. Please remember that even though we welcome anyone willing to learn English, we're strangers to each other at first. We encourage everyeon to develop friendships gradually in a safe way.
