Free English Class in Toronto Canada
Every Monday and Wednesday evenings from 7 to 8:30 PM there are free "ESL" English as a second language lessons and classes.
The free English conversation classes are offered at the Saint Paul's Anglican Church located at 227 Bloor Street East, Toronto, Ontario, Canada. St. Paul's is located about 200 meters east of the Yonge and Bloor Street intersection on the south side of Bloor Street.
St Paul's provides the location as a public service to the community and provides tea and coffee which usually goes well with cookies. Last week Roy brought my favourite Oreo cookies. They were great. You can bring snacks to the class.
The following are pictures of Bloor Street and the route to the classes at St Paul's.
If traveling by subway you can exit at the Yonge and Bloor subway stop. Exit on the south side of Bloor Street. You then walk east on the south side of Bloor Street for about 4 minutes(400 meters).
This is a picture of the south side of Bloor street looking to the East.
After you have walked 400 meters and crossed over Church Street you will see the St Paul's Digital Sign on Bloor Street.
This is a picture of the St Paul's Digital Sign.
After you have walked past the St Paul's Digital Sign you will see the stairs, the glass foyer and the glass doors to St Paul's..

To enter use the big glass doors between the main church and the Reception Hall. The first thing that you will see is the community information display and brochures. If you see something that will help you - please help yourself - they are for you.
Follow the sign "ESL Cafe" through the inside doors to the classes.
The ESL English instruction is provided by volunteers. The volunteers have patience, enthusiasm, good-will towards all and some even have ESL teacher certification.
The ESL English conversation classes are divided into beginner, intermediate and advanced language skill levels.
Conversation topics include current events, vacations, where to get stuff cheap, some politics, funny things about Canada, job training, career suggestions, where to go to school.
The FREE ESL English conversation classes have operated at St Paul's for almost six years now and have helped adults, newcomers to Canada and students from Mexico, Peru, Colombia, Brazil, Argentina, Japan, China, Taiwan, Philippines, Cameroon, Iran, Iraq, Turkey, Bulgaria, Russia, Poland, Italy, France, Spain, Ivory Coast and many other countries. You can meet new friends from around the world.
Come and visit us this Monday and say hello to the volunteers: Dennis, Roy, Tony, Matt, Robin, Shelia, Claude, Poi, Marios, Christopher, Bill, David and myself.
