Students are encouraged to come to Thrive’s Language Cafe on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays at 7:00pm each month for extra practice.

The 3rd Tuesday each month, students will practice conversation skills while meeting others from the community and helping with preparations for Thrive’s takeout meals. 

Covid-19 notes:  For safety during the in-person tutoring sessions, we ask all students and tutors to be fully vaccinated for Covid-19.  We also ask students and tutors to wear masks that cover their mouths and noses during tutoring sessions.
