Conversation Circles

The Library’s Conversation Circles are volunteer-led casual gatherings aimed at helping people improve their language skills by speaking and interacting with other learners. All Conversation Circles are free and open to the public.

The Library also maintains a list of language-learning resources for Conversation Circle volunteers and members.

English Conversation Circles

There is a beginner’s English Conversation Circle on Tuesday mornings at 9:30 am, and a more advanced Circle that meets weekly on Tuesdays from 1 pm – 3 pm. Both programs meet in the conference room on the lower level of the main library.

French Conversation Circle

The French Conversation Circle usually meets every second Thursday of the month at 7 pm in the main library’s conference room on the lower level. This Circle is led by library volunteer MacLaren Harris, who sends out email updates to people interested in the French Circle. If you would like to be added to his list, please contact Vickie Turcotte at vturcotte@chelmsfordlibrary.org
