For ten years, English Exchange has brought together friends from all over the globe with one goal: to learn English! When asked to comment on English Exchange, a student said, “I come because I need conversation in order to improve my knowledge and my pronunciation. Every week I learn something new.” English Exchange is sponsored by the Adult Literacy Project of the Palm Beach County Library System (PBCLS) and allows students to improve their conversational English skills in a fun and informal atmosphere.
