Volunteers Needed for the Better English Café – we have become a victim of our own success and with more and more participants each week, we are once again in need of more volunteers.  Facilitators are always needed to keep the conversation flowing.  You don’t need to be a teacher as we mainly work to keep everyone chatting away and to be there to answer questions or explain some of the quirks of the English language.

We also need one or two people who could help by taking over more of the “running of the evening work” – directing people to tables, refillling coffee pots, directing cleanup etc.  It wouldn’t necessarily have to be every week – if more than one person was interested then they could alternate weeks.

Please consider this need and if you are able to help, contact us at: bec@standrewstoronto.org

We wrapped up this year’s Better English Café on Tuesday, June 27th by welcoming 116 guests and approximately 25 volunteers to our end of year BBQ! 

Everyone enjoyed their burgers and hotdogs so, a special thank you to the chief grill master – Marc Roberts and to all his assistants.  It was a wonderful evening and a great way to introduce many of those in the room to what Canada Day means and how we celebrate.

As one of our newest Canadians, Lesley Jensen, had the honour of cutting the cake, so thank you Lesley.

 

We look forward to seeing everyone again on September 12th!

VOLUNTEERS

We will still welcome new volunteers for The Better English Cafe.  You don’t need to be an English teacher, just have a good understanding of the language and be willing to facilitate.  We take turns setting up a topic and a list of vocabulary for each week and then our job is to ensure that everyone else is doing the talking.

If you would like to speak with someone about being a volunteer please email: bec@standrewstoronto.org
