 Spring 2015 Conversation Group Schedule

Daily English Conversation Groups


Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays
12:30 - 1:30pm
International Center, 421 Temple Street
1st floor conference room

These popular volunteer-led groups provide an enjoyable, informal means for improving conversation skills and are also a good place for participants to meet new friends and explore topics in American culture.


While they are not formal classes, they are an excellent supplement to a course of study in English as a second language (ESL). See the OISS events calendar for an updated schedule if you are interested in joining English Conversations at Yale.

English Conversation Hour by the International Church at Yale

Are you an international student looking to improve your English? Are you looking for a relaxed, safe and fun environment in which to do so? Would you like to meet other international students from Yale and other universities in New Haven? Come to the English Conversation Hour hosted by the International Church at Yale each Sunday morning from 9:30am - 10:30am! Practice your speaking and listening comprehension skills in a small group and discuss different topics each week that will help you excel in your classes and feel more comfortable in different social settings. Any and all students (or family members of students) are welcome regardless of your English level or faith tradition; in fact, there is no discussion of religion in this class. English speakers of all levels (beginning, intermediate and advanced) currently attend this class
