English as a Second Language Conversation Groups

Join one of our Weekly ESL Conversation Groups!



The Community Literacy Council offers weekly conversation groups for adults wishing to improve their conversational English. These groups meet at the Canton Public Library, Plymouth District Library, Connection Church in Canton, and Living Word Church in Plymouth. We also have a conversation group for family members of Plymouth-Canton Community Schools' students at Eriksson Elementary school. The conversation groups are free of charge and no registration is required.
