English Practice Groups

The Hillsborough Literacy Council organizes English practice groups called “Conversation Corners” to provide adult English language learners an opportunity to practice speaking English in the comfort of a small group. 

Conversation Corner groups are led by volunteers.

Conversation Corner groups are open to any adult English language learner who would like to speak and understand English more easily.  You do not have to be a student in the Hillsborough Literacy Council tutoring program to attend.  No pre-registration is required and you may attend as many or as few sessions as you like.

Please call us at 813-273-3650 for more information.
