“I got several job interviews in this term. Of course, my English is not perfect, but all interviewers—we had real communication. That’s why I got a job offer. That’s the best thing I got from English Lounge is confidence speaking in English.”

(Chul Woo, Second-Year Civil Engineering Student)

English Lounge is an informal conversation group for students to practice speaking and listening skills with peers. The focus of the lounge is on building speaking fluency and learning idiomatic expressions and colloquial language that will be useful in the workplace. English Lounge runs every Wednesday from 2:45-3:45pm in the Summit Centre (at the back of the main floor of the BBY library). Feel free to drop in and say “hi”!
