This free Basic English as a Second Language conversation group is led by a trained Literacy Volunteers of Somerset County volunteer tutor. The group is offered to ESL learners who have a basic, working knowledge of English. The group is not appropriate for people who cannot speak basic English.
Conversation groups provide ESL learners with a safe, comfortable environment to gain confidence and experience speaking English with other ESL learners. A conversation group is the perfect complement to an ESL class or working with a literacy tutor. Different topics are explored each week and tutors provide information and fun activities that help people learn more about American customs while improving their English literacy skills.
The group meets every Tuesday at the same time for 10 weeks from September 10th through November 12th. Registration is not required and drop-ins are welcome! For more information, please call 908.725.5430 or send an email to info@literacysomerset.org.
