In January we started having Conversation Groups online via Zoom. We had a Thursday evening group in the Winter and a Tuesday morning group in the Spring. Students like the small group setting so that they have time and opportunity to practice speaking and listening with others. In the Tuesday morning group we worked on making and changing doctors’ appointments and talking about health histories. We have begun a partnership with the Fitchburg Public Schools’ program for parents and are offering a Wednesday evening Conversation Class in June and July.

We look forward to possibly adding an in-person conversation group in the fall at one of our partner libraries.
