(Note* Definitions for confusing words are below this summary) This is an ESL language group with a simple goal: To provide a safe and fun conversational meetup for female English Language learners in the Houston area. All ages from 18 years and older are welcome (well-behaved children are also welcome if a parent is unable to find a babysitter).
In so many of the ESL meetup groups in the Houston area, males outnumber women. This can make it difficult for some women to engage in candid conversations. Conversations that are only used for educational purposes could even be misunderstood to have a deeper meaning. Married women may understand how uncomfortable this would be… Some ladies may not worry about this, but if you do, our language group may put your fears to rest.
Our group will seek to provide you with regularly scheduled, long-term opportunities to continue to improve your English skills without financial pressures or a fear that your English class could turn into a speed-dating event.
This ESL language group seeks to provide female ESL learners with a free ongoing opportunity to practice mock conversations with lady partners on multiple topics ranging from ‘romance & family-life’ to ‘science in the news’.
As a female ESL language group, we will also seek to practice our writing, listening, and debate skills, but this will depend on the growth of our group and on how many learners are willing to participate in the meetings.
This group is most beneficial for female learners with an ability to maintain conversations in English for at least 30 minutes. This group is judgment-free, and you will be able to learn, practice, and improve your English skills without the need to speak perfectly.
