Fall 2020 Programs (Online)

This fall, we are continuing our programs online to support language learning and community connection from a safe distance. This will be a free online language exchange program, where you will meet a partner by video once a week, with facilitators and a group to support you.

Registration open: 1st - 11th October 2020 

Programs: Oct 19th - Dec 13th 2020

Eligibility: Our fall programs are open to anyone currently living in British Columbia.

Format: Weekly meetings will take place online via Zoom video conferencing software. To participate in this program, you will need access to a digital device (e.g., laptop, tablet, smartphone) and a reliable internet connection.

Please Note: Registration does not guarantee that we will be able to find you a partner and depends on the availability of matches. We will contact you before the program starts, to tell you if you have a partner. We do our best to match as many people as possible.
