Conversation Club

Dear ASA students, do you want to improve your English oral communication skills?

You can do it from the comfort of home! Join us for a group meeting on Tuesdays and Wednesdays at 12 pm. We will practice speaking in a relaxed environment with other ESL students who are also learning English as their second language. It’s free, so there’s no reason not to join!

Join our weekly meetings today and improve your oral communication skills! Our friendly Professor Patrick Alvarez (Bilingual English/Spanish) will guide the conversation in order to help everyone feel comfortable participating in discussions. You’ll be able to ask questions about anything that’s on your mind, share stories, or just chat with others like yourself. It’s fun and easy! We’re excited to see you at our next session!

Host: Professor Patrick Alvarez (Bilingual English/Spanish)


When: During the Fall 2021 Semester, our Conversation Club will be held every Tuesday and Wednesday from 12PM – 1PM via Zoom.
