What is an English Language Group?

In English language groups, adult learners enjoy friendly conversation while practicing everyday language skills in a relaxed, informal atmosphere. Topics include conversation, reading short stories, practicing pronunciation, and more. Learners explore daily life in the U.S., gain confidence, and meet people from around the world.
