English Language Learning (ELL)

Learn languages at the San Juan Island Library

In addition to reference books and digital materials, we offer a variety of in-person opportunities to learn and improve language skills.

Bilingual English-Spanish Conversation Circles provide a time to practice Spanish or English in a casual, fun setting. English Learners’ Conversation Circles are open to speakers of all languages who want to improve their English, and sessions include facilitated conversations about everyday topics like favorite foods or television series. The English Learners’ Book Club focuses on titles that are of interest and will boost confidence in both reading and discussing in English.
