Language Training

Lunch en Français

The SJMNRC is pleased to invite you to our LUNCH EN FRANÇAIS every Friday, from 12:00 to 1:00PM at Market Square. Bring along your snack or lunch.


The main purpose of LUNCH EN FRANÇAIS is to provide ongoing occasions for those who would like to enjoy French conversation in a casual environment for one hour. Please mark this in your calendar!  Everyone is welcome.


Thank you and we look forward to seeing you!

Please note that you must already be able to speak French in order to attend these sessions.

Learning English


The SJMNRC offers English communication groups throughout the year and for different levels of English comprehension. The regular classes, known as the Volunteer English Program, are offered in 10-week intervals each spring, fall, and winter.


There are three levels and newcomers can be assessed first to find out which level is right for them.  Schedules and classes will change each season. Calendars are created at the beginning of each season and can be picked up at the SJMNRC.


The SJMNRC also offers the Saturday Social, an informal and casual way to learn English. This is offered every Saturday in Market Square.  This activity takes place from 2 pm to 4 pm every Saturday, with the exception of holidays. Volunteers hosting the Saturday Social will be visible by their light blue t-shirts with our logo on the front and back.

Based on your needs, the SJMNRC can also offer individual language tutorial sessions.  Anyone interested in this service can contact us at or (506) 642-4242.
