Talk Time is a unique opportunity for adults in Tacoma Community House’s English Language Acquisition (ELA) program to practice conversational English with volunteers in our community. Students are able to put their English skills into practice, while both conversation partners have the opportunity to ask questions and share experiences. Talk Time is often the only place where our students can engage in spontaneous conversations, which are important in building their language confidence and fluency.
