English Conversation Circle

The Library is closed at this time due to the COVID-19 pandemic and hence, we are not able to offer the English Conversation classes in the library. We encourage you to visit our Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/ECCatSPL/ where we will be posting links to resources that might help you improve your conversational English. If you would like to receive an e-newsletter with tips for practicing your English with e-books, websites or podcasts, please send an email to czarobe@aol.com.

The English Conversation Circle is a forum for non-native adult speakers to practice speaking English in an informal environment. The library offers 5 sessions a week that are facilitated by 5 experienced teachers. The classes are free and interested persons can attend 1 or more sessions.

Program History


The library has offered this program since 2010. Initially, it was funded by Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) grant. For the past 7 years, we have been awarded a grant from the Greater Worcester Community Foundation (GWCF). We are very grateful to the GWCF for their generosity.
