Where can I meet people, and practice my English?

When you arrive in Canada, you may already know many people who speak your first language.  It’s enjoyable to spend time together, sharing familiar food and memories.  However, it’s also important to spend time with people who don’t share your first language, so that you can keep using the English you’ve been learning.  Also, life can get very boring and lonely if you only spend your weekends cleaning, studying, and watching TV.

Luckily, there are many activities you can join.

One group is just for English language learners:

Check it out and join in their activities.  While you are on the Meetup site, take a look at the many other interest groups you can join, if you love dancing, theatre, knitting, hiking, or many other activities.  Most groups are very flexible.  You can come to the activities you like, but you don’t have to come to everything.
