English Corner is a fun, free, informal weekly time of tutoring for international students who would like to improve their conversational English skills.  It is open to any international person who wants to attend, including spouses of students, Owens CC students, and other residents of the greater Toledo area. The topics are unique to each class, so you can attend as many English Corner classes as you like.

We practice everyday conversation, pronunciation and speaking skills using a variety of topics and fun exercises.  Usually we have several American helpers, so we can break up larger groups for more personal conversation practice.

We usually serve light refreshments during our meeting and have a great time together.

Some activities have included: playing games that use English, watching a video clip and discussing it, sharing about cross-cultural topics, going on field trips, fun events like picnics and cookouts, and much more!

We are always looking for American volunteers who would like to help, so if you are free during one of the times mentioned above, please contact the appropriate person and come join us.

Come and enjoy a combination of friendship and English help!
