English Conversation Club (ECC)

If you’re looking for a relaxed place to practice your English or you are a native English speaker that enjoys interacting with international students and scholars, then English Conversation Club is the place for you!  There is no application or registration required.  We only ask that participants come ready to talk and have fun!  English Conversation Club is a great place to learn commonly used idioms, practice your conversation skills and learn American vocabulary.


English Conversation Club currently meets in two locations to provide variety and to better serve the needs of all participants.  You are welcome to attend either or both conversation groups.  All ECC meetings will continue throughout the summer.  Any holiday cancellations or changes will be posted here.  Please note the updated summer times for the Centennial Campus meetings on Tuesday and Thursday.

  • The first group meeting is on Tuesdays from 1:30 to 2:30 at the College of Textiles Port City Java on Centennial Campus.  
  •  The second group meeting is on Thursdays from 1:30 to 2:30 at the College of Textiles Port City Java on Centennial Campus.  
  • The third group meets every Friday from 3:30 to 4:30 in Daniels Hall, Room 216 on North Campus.
