FAQ

Here are the most commonly asked questions from our students.

Is it really free?

Yes, it’s 100% free to participate in this club.

Do I have to be an RCIIS student or graduate to participate?

No, this club is open to any/all English language learners who wish to practise their English speaking and listening skills in a relaxed, social atmosphere.

Is there a minimum skill level requirement?

No, our teacher-host will try to accommodate and involve all levels of English students. However, our typical discussion questions and participants are at the intermediate level or higher, so students who are around the intermediate or upper-intermediate level will likely get the most out of the experience.

When are the meetings?

We hold the meetings every week on Wednesdays switching between evening meetings at 8-9pm EST (Toronto time) and morning meetings at 8-9am EST (Toronto time). We prioritize new participants at each meeting.

Do I need to prepare anything?

Just make sure you have downloaded and installed Zoom in advance, and that you have a functioning camera and microphone.

Can I come late to a meeting?

We will still admit you if you’re late, but because the meeting is only an hour, it’s best to only commit to a meeting if you can be present for the whole hour.

How can I cancel my participation?

You can cancel your participation anytime through the confirmation e-mail that we sent you.

Do you still have questions?

If you have any other questions related to the club, please e-mail us at contact@rciis.ca with the subject "Conversation Club".
