Conversation Community

Conversation Community is a peer-to-peer, non-academic service for students who wish to practice their conversational English while experiencing diverse cultural aspects of Toronto. We offer both one-on-one and group sessions, both of which are led by trained and qualified upper year students. These interactive sessions equip students with a great knowledge of Canadian and North American culture, holidays, and traditions as well as popular slang and idioms used in our daily dialect.  

These sessions can also be social outings to events in Toronto which will increase the students’ confidence in speaking conversational Canadian-English. Students can book 25 minute one on one sessions with our facilitators and speak about any topic of interest. Sessions can take place anywhere on campus.
