Apply for Our One-on-One English Conversation Program

Would you like to practice your English conversation skills with a volunteer? We are currently accepting applications for our One-on-One English Conversation Program for a limited time. The application is available to fill out online here.

Our One-on-One English Conversation Program is offered at Central, Beacock, Jalna, Masonville and Sherwood Branches. This program is intended to enhance the language learning experience of those wishing to improve their English verbal skills. Each session lasts for 4 months (January – April; May – August; September – December).

Participants, 18 years of age or older, with sufficient English skills to allow a back and forth in conversation, are matched with volunteers. Pairs meet once a week, for up to 4 months, at one of our 5 participating library locations to talk for an hour, play literacy games, read aloud, look at maps, read menus and enjoy getting to know more about each other, while sharing English conversation and literacy activities together.

Volunteer English Conversation Mentors Needed

If you are over 18 years of age, speak English fluently, and are interested in meeting new people this might be the right volunteer opportunity for you. Our volunteers are interested in and accepting of all cultures, are warm and friendly, and have good verbal and written communication skills. No teaching experience is necessary and training is provided. To learn more or to apply, see our volunteer section.
