FREE ESL English Conversation Class - Monday, January 24, 2011 in Toronto Canada
Every Monday evening from 7 to 8:30 PM there are free "ESL" English as a second language lessons and classes.
The free English conversation classes are offered at the Saint Paul's Anglican Church located at 227 Bloor Street East, Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
St. Paul's is located about 200 meters east of the Yonge and Bloor Street intersection on the south side of Bloor Street.
If traveling by subway you can exit at Yonge and Bloor - then walk east on the south side for about 2 minutes.
To enter use the big glass doors between the main church and the Reception Hall and follow the sign "ESL Cafe" to the right.
St Paul's provides the location as a public service to the community and provides tea and coffee which usually goes well with cookies. Last week David brought my favourite maple sugar cookies and you are welcome to bring your favourite cookies.
The ESL English instruction is provided by volunteers. The volunteers have patience, enthusiasm, good-will towards all and some even have ESL teacher certification.
The ESL English conversation classes are divided into beginner, intermediate and advanced language skill levels.
Conversation topics include current events, vacations, where to get stuff cheap, some politics, funny things about Canada, job training.
The FREE ESL English conversation classes have operated at St Paul's for over two years now and have helped adults, newcomers to Canada and students from Mexico, Peru, Colombia, Brazil, Argentina, Japan, China, Taiwan, Philippines, Cameroon, Iran, Iraq, Turkey, Bulgaria, Russia, Poland, Italy, France, Spain, Ivory Coast and many other countries. You can meet new friends from around the world.
Come and visit us this Monday, January 24, 2011 and say hello to the volunteers: Dennis, Roy, Jack, Matt, Joy and Ju and myself.
