Join us at the ESL Conversation Café and practice speaking and listening with others in a friendly environment. Group meets every Thursday 1:30pm-3:30pm and every Friday 6:30p-8:00pm. Everyone is welcome and no registration is required. We're located right in front of the Liliacia Park so when the weather is nice we may picnic outside. Hope to see you there!
