Saturday afternoon Conversational English Classes – cancelled for now

Our Conversational English classes are cancelled for the time being because of concerns over the Wuhan coronavirus. They will resume when the situation improves.

New in Canada?
Want to improve your English?
Interested in local history and culture?

These are just some of the reasons we often have 30-40 people join us each Saturday.

Meet with us for “a time of learning and friendship.”

Saturdays, 3:00 – 5:00 pm  (September through April). Various activities are also planned in the summer months and occasionally throughout the year.

Class Location:

Argyle Road Baptist Church (meet in the lower hall)

We offer free classes at two levels:

  • Focus is English vocabulary, pronunciation, current events, Western culture, and Christianity

Come whenever you can

Classes are informal. You do not have to commit to attend every week. You do not have to sign up in advance.

Bring friends and family members; visitors are always welcome.

Child care

We provide free child care for children ages 2 through 6 each week. Sorry, we don’t have activities for older children. They are welcome to come and attend the regular classes with their parents.

Links to Some English Class Articles

Each teacher in the English classes has a different style and uses whatever content they want to teach. Some of the teachers use articles from Our Daily Bread (which is also available in Chinese and other languages). Here are some of the articles that have been used in the past and might be used in the future.
