Speakwell ESL is a free, non-denominational program run by volunteers and sponsored by the Community Development Office, Saanich Parks and Recreation, Municipality of Saanich in Victoria, British Columbia

Speakwell ESL has a mission to serve the people in our community in the following ways:

  • To support the many excellent English programs available in Victoria through a free, volunteer-based program.
  • To welcome the immigrant, refugee, and temporary visitor populations in the greater Victoria area.
  • To boost confidence in verbal communication by providing a relaxed, informal environment for participants to practice their English skills.
  • To build verbal fluency for participants at all English levels by organizing groups so individuals with similar proficiency are able to learn together at their own pace.
  • To foster cross-cultural interaction and understanding in an effort to create a sense of community both on a local and international level.
