  • Would you like to have fun and build strong relationships with your patrons?
  • Are you interested in attending the best potluck ever?

ESL (English as a Second Language) Conversation Clubs are simple and inexpensive programs that make a big impact. In just an hour a week, you can create lasting connections between people, the library and your community.

Staff from three different public libraries will share their best practices, presenting a range of styles and activities that can be adapted to meet your community’s needs.

At the end of this one hour webinar, attendees will:

  • Have at least three new ideas for activities to do at an ESL club
  • Feel comfortable starting a new ESL Club
  • Gain understanding of the different ways an ESL Club may be structured
  • Identify potential volunteers and attendees, and understand how to reach them

This webinar will be of interest to library staff members considering starting or improving an ESL Conversation Club. The primary focus of this webinar is on public libraries, but any library interested in forming a group will find helpful tips and ideas.
