Conversational English Classes

Conversational English classes are free and open to CSU students, scholars and their family members as well as others in Fort Collins. Groups meet twice a week throughout the year and provide help with language skills, insight into American customs, and a place to share cultural experiences. We all learn through lively and engaging conversation. 

Prior registration is not necessary.

Conversational English classes occur Monday and Thursday mornings.

In-person classes at Aggie Village are held Monday mornings from 9:30 – 11:00 a.m. The group meets in the Aggie Family Center, building #24. If you have questions, please contact Sara Hunt at or text at 970-420-9983.

Monday classes welcome children although there is no childcare. please bring quiet toys children can play with while classes are in session.
