We Practice Speaking English and Spanish at the Olney Library! Practicamos el Habla Español e Inglés en la Biblioteca de Olney!

Are you interested in practicing your English or Spanish-speaking skills?
If so, Olney’s Conversation Groups are for you!

The groups are for beginner to intermediate-level speakers. Join residents of all ages in a friendly and welcoming environment to practice conversing in English or Spanish.

No registration is required; just show up at the scheduled time listed below.  Each group is facilitated by a native English or Spanish speaker.  And, every class is an opportunity to learn from fellow learners— from different backgrounds and cultures— and have a fun time practicing a new language!

The English Conversation Groups take place each week at the following dates/times:
Sundays at 1:30 pm
Mondays at 7 pm

You are welcome to join one or both English Conversation groups.

The Spanish Conversation Group meets on:
Tuesdays at 6:30 pm

We hope you will join us! / ¡Esperamos que se una a nosotros!
