An eager group of immigrant seniors, who were learning to achieve a useful and functional way of communicating in English; when I visited,  they were learning basic words that are used for the doctor’s appointments and also learning about the Canadian general protocols when seeing a Doctor.
The project leader was very knowledgeable and patient. She made every participant feel accomplished with their learning and support them to express themselves better. What a great group!
I was also told that many of the participants are more comfortable doing their independent shopping in the area as they had become more familiar with their community.
